During the 2013-2014 NHL season, the infamous United Center in Chicago can be expected to be louder and more exciting than ever. This is because the Chicago Blackhawks are back for the 2013-2014 season and ready to take on a full season of play, after last year’s shortened season. The Blackhawks are also looking to return to the ice to protect the Stanley Cup Trophy. As the reigning Stanley Cup winners, this team will have a lot to live up to in the league, but with a full roster of some of the team’s top players on their lineup, it seems as though the Blackhawks are more than ready to take on the challenge.
Last year was the fifth time in the team’s history that they have come away with the Stanley Cup Trophy, and with this success behind them, the team is focused on maintaining a longstanding reputation of excellence within the league moving forward. This is because in addition to winning the Stanley Cup, last year the team also took at least one point in each of their first 26 games, were the winners of the Central Division and the top team in the Western Conference. They also walked away with the President’s Trophy at the end of the 2013 season.
