As the lockout-shortened season dawned, there were questions about the Blackhawks, who had flamed out in the first round of the 2012 playoffs. The core of their 2010 Stanley Cup team was still in place -- captain Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and 2010 Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Duncan Keith -- but the ability of Corey Crawford (right) to be a true No. 1 goalie was in doubt. Coach Joel Quenneville's job was rumored to be less than secure. Add an abbreviated training camp to the mix and Chicago's start would prove to be stunning.
