2013 was easily their best chance. IMO they played very well against Boston outside of game 2.
If a goalie is hot there's not much you can really do.
Luckily Shero is a good enough GM to keep the core long term so they'll have ample opportunities to try again this year and numerous years after that.
Maybe, but don't you think Bylsma should have changed the lines around? If I recall, the Blachawks were having trouble generating offense in Game 1 against the Bruins until their coach finally switched up the lines, allowing them to tie the game and send it into OT.
