Why Chicago Blackhawks fans have been so loyal to their team
Posted On July 26, 2021
The Blackhawks are the NHL’s longest-tenured team.
For most of the past two decades, they’ve been the league’s best team.
This season, however, they have become the league record holders for most losses.
Their most recent loss came at home against the Colorado Avalanche on March 5, and they’re only one win away from their sixth loss of the season.
The Blackhawks are also the NHL record holders in games played.
Last season, the team was the second-longest active team, behind only the New York Rangers.
But they’ve also been the team to win the most games (1,076) and to win a Stanley Cup (3).
It’s a trend that’s been repeated every season for the past three decades.
The Chicago Blackhawks are an American Hockey League franchise and the longest-running team in the league, with three decades of NHL history.
The team has been around since 1908, but only became an American franchise in 1998.
Since then, the Blackhawks have won a total of six Stanley Cups, including three in the past five seasons.
Their only loss was to the Colorado Buffaloes in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The team is also one of the longest standing NHL franchises, having been established in 1903.
It was the first NHL team in Chicago, and its home ice was the Metropolitan Division’s St. Louis Blues.
Since 1908, the franchise has won two Stanley Cups.
This year’s Blackhawks are aiming for their fifth Cup and third overall, and will be joined by the New Jersey Devils, Tampa Bay Lightning, Detroit Red Wings, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Anaheim Ducks and Vancouver Canucks.
