SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) The Chicago Blackhawks want to get back to the Stanley Cup final.
The Game 7 Western Conference finals loss in overtime to the eventual Cup champion Los Angeles Kings still weighs on their minds. The 2013 Cup champions are focused on bettering last season's finish.
"It's motivation knowing our potential and how close we came," Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said ahead of training camp on Friday at Notre Dame's campus. "(We're) using that as a source of energy to improve upon."
