The Blackhawks opened their defense of the Stanley Cup on Thursday, and waiting for them in the first round was rival St. Louis. Let's just say given how much they dislike each other, blood on the ice will be the furthest thing from a surprise. In honor of Hawks forward Brandon Bollig, a St. Louis native known for dropping the gloves, we tracked Game 1 boxing-style.

The most coveted trophy in all sports is not only a breathtaking silver spectacle, but also a collective time capsule of champions. During the Blackhawks Convention this weekend at the Hilton Chicago, RedEye asked the Stanley Cup champs what they've enjoyed doing most with the cup, and for those who haven't had their day yet, what they're looking forward to doing with it.

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.

Corey Crawford crouches in front of the net and glides side to side, guarding his domain. The Blackhawks goaltender uses his entire body as well as his stick and glove to block the 150 pucks flying at him in one hour of a recent practice. Few evade him, and those that do are usually fired by superstar Patrick Kane. Most pucks clink off the goal post, slap the glass or ricochet off his pads. The 28-year-old Crawford skates over to the bench where players keep equipment during practice.

As a sportswriter I have to differentiate fan from journalist almost on a daily basis. But after watching the last three Blackhawks games, the fan has come out of me by force of nature. Anyone who knows me understnds I am mostly just an observer of hockey. Growing up, I didn't watch the sport much aside from the Stanley Cup playoffs. I guess you can blame that on the fact that for years the Blackhawks' home games were never on TV. You can also blame that on my undying passion for football; I live and die with the Bears.
