Three key stats about the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks


1.) Hits: 840. This number put them last in the NHL. Repeat. Last in the NHL.

2.) Blocked shots: 652. This number was 21st in the NHL. Again, near the bottom.

3.) Fenwick Close: 55.80. This number was second-best in the NHL. And this is the big one.

When you see the Blackhawks with a mark of 55.80, that means they attempted more than 55 percent of the total shot attempts. That is a huge advantage and takes a lot of pressure off their goalies.

'Nuff said.
