OLD-TIME HOCKEY:

Blackhawks join Bruins for Original 6 Cup finals (LARRY LAGE, 6/09/13, AP)

Those Canadiens were led by coach Scotty Bowman, now a senior adviser for the Blackhawks, whose general manager is his son, Stan.

The Blackhawks will have home-ice advantage in their first postseason matchup with the Bruins since 1978, when Boston won an opening-round series.
