 SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks are feeling better about their chances of repeating than the last time they won the Stanley Cup.
The Blackhawks won the NHL title in 2010, and then lost several key players mainly because of salary-cap issues. The departed included goalie Antti Niemi and key defenseman Dustin Byfuglien, and the result was a first-round playoff loss.
Fresh off their second title in four seasons, the Blackhawks arrived in northern Indiana on Wednesday and will begin training camp with most of the key players back from last year's team.
Captain Jonathan Toews says the players understand there will be a lot of talk about repeating, but he says it's too early to talk about that. The last team to win back-to-back Cups was Detroit in 1997 and 1998.
