In Chicago, a Blackhawks playoff game is must-see TV. If you can't get tickets to the game, that is. With a 2-1 series lead, the Hawks return to action Friday in Minnesota and Sunday in Chicago. So what does it take to produce a three-hour NHL on NBC Sports broadcast? A lot more than three hours, for one thing. A roster of nearly 50 people chips in to cover the lengthy to-do list. The crew culls the plays of the game, cues replays, creates graphics, compiles stats, talks to the on-ice timeout coordinator about commercials, runs the audio board and decides which shots and angles of the 24...

In three short years, Patrick Kane has grown up. Before lifting the Stanley Cup in 2010 at age 21, he talked to RedEye about how he liked to play himself in an NHL video game and how he was still adjusting to superstardom in Chicago, where athletes are mega-celebrities. Fans saw the boyish grin he flashed when he celebrated that game-winning goal against Philadelphia in overtime to crown the Hawks champions. Fast-forward three years and he still has the same boyish grin. Chicago witnessed it again when he smacked the puck into the net in double overtime against the L.A. Kings to clinch the...

Brandon Bollig. Brent Seabrook. Bryan Bickell. Corey Crawford. Not exactly the house-hold Blackhawks names Chicagoan are used to hearing. But they are the four players that have stepped into the spotlight so far in the Blackhaws' Stanley Cup Playoffs matchup with Phoenix. The two teams bring their intense battle to the United Center on Tuesday, where one team will skate away with a 2-1 series lead after the two split the opening two games in Glendale, Ariz. And the players mentioned above are a big reason the...

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. " It's not that he lacks personality or a sense of humor, but putting those traits on display publicly doesn't come naturally for the 22-year...

With 24 games in the books, the first half of the Blackhawks' 2013 season has been one for the ages. To mark the occasion, RedEye spoke with Blackhawks announcer Eddie Olczyk as well as fans about why they're so excited about this team.   What are the defining characteristics of why this team is so good? Eddie Olczyk: I would say with this team, regardless of who comes out the door for a shift, forwards, defensemen, you've got two goaltenders, so whichever goaltender is playing - the interchangeable parts of this team is I think what separates them from a lot of teams.

Rachel Carrington darted toward the sliding puck to block it with her stick and prevent her opponent from scoring in the hockey game. The defender was participating in an April scrimmage off the ice. In fact, her team was at least seven feet underwater. At the bottom of a pool. Welcome to underwater hockey. While the city hopes the Blackhawks repeat as Stanley Cup champs, these athletes have a different kind of hockey fever. "What's underwater hockey? I say it's the best sport ever," said Carrington, a 28-year-old Evanston resident.
