It started almost two decades ago with a $20 hockey stick once wielded by a forgotten player for a string of mediocre teams.
Jason Collins came out, got widely congratulated for his courage, and the games went on.
The Chicago Blackhawks may have peaked in late January, the entire month of February or early March when they went the first 24 games of the season without a regulation or overtime loss. They made history, but the Presidents' Trophy winners don't want this to be just the year of the streak.
For all their accomplishments so far _ the record-breaking start, the Presidents' Trophy, the individual honors _ the Chicago Blackhawks know this is the time of year that will define their season. They said the same thing all along.
Whatever damage was caused by the latest long NHL lockout, the league isn't feeling the fallout as it gets set to start this year's playoffs.

Tuesday, when President Obama honored the Los Angeles Kings, politics couldn't have been further away. Aside from perhaps a joke or two here and there.

Jerry West remembered a party-loving Buss who never went to bed, making it easy to be the first one at work in the morning.
Jerry Buss, the Los Angeles Lakers' playboy owner who shepherded the NBA franchise to 10 championships from the `80s Showtime dynasty to the Kobe Bryant era, died Monday, his assistant said.
Jerry Buss, the Los Angeles Lakers' playboy owner who shepherded the NBA franchise to 10 championships, has died. He was 80.
Words almost weren't enough. Boos might not have been enough after how poorly the Washington Capitals played in a 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.
The three-time All-Star made a pair of clutch foul shots in the final 2 minutes, finishing 7 for 10 from the line and partially atoning for his dreadful 5-for-18 performance as the Clippers held off the pesky Washington Wizards 94-87 on Saturday night.
