Nick Leddy's voice is so soft that it's become a running joke among his Blackhawks teammates. "Whenever we hang out as a group, we always want to give him a microphone so we can hear him talk," said Hawks center Andrew Shaw, who's become good friends with Leddy. "He's a whisperer - a megaphone would work, too. " Saying Leddy is laid back is putting it mildly. Even one of the equipment managers calls him by the good-natured nickname "Mumbles.

Quietly - and to the surprise of some - Corey Crawford is becoming one of the NHL's best goaltenders. "As a team we want to keep raising our level of play as the stage gets bigger and bigger, but I think if there's anyone that's doing that, it's Crow," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said after Crawford made 25 saves in Game 1. Entering Wednesday, he led all net minders in the 2014 postseason with a 1.90 goals-against average and his save...

Patrick Kane's skills on the ice are recognized throughout the NHL. But he has some work to do when it comes to growing facial hair. That said, he's doing his best, along with Blackhawks teammates Bryan Bickell, Brandon Bollig and Niklas Hjalmarsson, to support Movember. The annual, facial hair-focused event aims to raise awareness and money to fight prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges. "I just saw Kaner's [mustache] now with all these lights on," teammate Patrick Sharp said at the Michigan Avenue magazine cover party at Carnivale this week.

5-0.  That's Australian Blackhawks fan Paul Wilkins' record when he attends games at the United Center. Hard to argue with that success.  Same goes for just about everything Hawks related Sunday. Wilkins ( @pwilkins10 ) and more than 21,000 others saw Chicago knock off the L.A. Kings 3-1 in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals Sunday at the United Center. The Hawks take a 1-0 series lead into Game 2 on Wednesday at the United Center. Goals by Brandon Saad, Duncan Keith and Jonathan Toews backed Corey Crawford's 25 saves.

Some Blackhawks sport bushy messes. Others have beards that barely cover their face. But all itched and scratched their way through interviews Tuesday in preparation for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins.  The Hawks have had 44 days to perfect their playoff beards. But the time of year where a select few NHL players hide their razors has almost reached its end. Are the Hawks excited to part ways with their woolly facial walls? Or will they mourn the loss?

Next time you spot a Blackhawks player, pinch them. Winning the Stanley Cup still doesn't feel quite real. "It's a dream," goaltender Corey Crawford said. "It's everything you worked hard for. " Since hoisting the Cup on Monday night, the team has been on a whirlwind tour like rock stars with stops at bars all over Chicago. Whereever they go, screaming fans chase them, champagne is sprayed and a flurry of photos and videos are quickly posted to social media. "It's been crazy really," Brandon Saad said.

Meet your 2013 Western Conference champion Chicago Blackhawks! Well, virtually, that is. The real Hawks haven't laced up their skates in eight months, due to the NHL lockout. In the meantime, RedEye has employed EA's "NHL 13" to simulate the season. But since the 113-day labor mess ended Sunday and a shortened season begins soon, we thought we'd show you how the virtual Hawks fared - including their improbable run to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Hawks had a blazing start, going undefeated in their first eight games and 12-4-1 after 17, but hit rough...

It's easy to forgive the NHL, or at least the Blackhawks, when the team is playing this well. Jonathan Toews and Co. tied a franchise record Saturday by winning their fifth straight game to start the season, and they were going for team history against hated Detroit on Sunday. Could they do it? RedEye tracked how hot the Hawks were during Sunday's game.   FIRST PERIOD 17:36: That didn't take long. Duncan Keith cruises toward the net on a power play and blasts it past Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard into the top left corner.

It's a natural comparison, at least on the surface. The 2013 Blackhawks finished with the most points in the NHL and head into the playoffs as serious Stanley Cup contenders just three years after winning hockey's ultimate prize. After locking the "core group" of stars into contract extensions and losing key role players from the 2010 team, it's taken two frustrating seasons for the Hawks to re-emerge as a powerhouse. They've done it, though, and the journey has brought a cast of new characters.

Technically, Thursday's Game 4 at Detroit was not a "must-win" for the Blackhawks. Even if they lost, they'd still have a chance to win the series. However, being 3-1 would make them very uncomfortable, and thus they needed to play with a high degree of desperation. How'd they do? RedEye tracked the game on our desperation meter (Scale of 0 to 5. In this case, the more desperate the Hawks looked and played, the better.) FIRST PERIOD Before the game even started, Hawks coach Joel Quenneville shook up the lines.
