The Goalies

For most of the post season the chicago Black Hawks put Corey Crawford between the pipes ,with goaltender Ray Emery as there back up. Crawford has ben the face of the Black Hawks and he help the team win a stanley cup back in the 2009/2010 NHL hockey season.The BlackHawks have seen some excelent goales come n go from there rosters, but this past year could go down as one of the best combo goalie set in franchise history.

Does Defense Wins Championships ?

Yes defense is one of the most important aspects of any championship team. Teams who have the ability to trap the puck and keep the puck out of their own net, seem to do better in the post season then teams who have high power offence's.

The 2013 Chicago BlackHawks where great at trapping the other team, stealing/forcing turnovers, witch lead to great goals and awesome scoring chances. The Blackhawks, with out a doubt had some great defensive players on there roster in 2013, lets look at some top defensive players for the BlackHawks during the 2013 NHL PlayOffs.
