The Chicago Blackhawks’ Resiliency May Be The Best Ever

Honest question.  Can anybody remember a team in the history of the NHL with such a stubborn streak when it comes to winning games or series?  By rights the Chicago Blackhawks could easily be down in the Western Conference Finals 3-0 to the Anaheim Ducks.

Blackhawks surge in playoffs after Patrick Kane's early return
