Continued: Deja vu: Blackhawks, Bruins face same Game 6 scenarios as in last trips to Stanley Cup finals

The goalie for each team is different, with Rask and Corey Crawford both newcomers to playing in the finals. (Thomas may or may not be retired while Chicago's goalie in 2010, Antti Niemi, was a Vezina Trophy finalist this season with San Jose.) Salary cap concerns forced the Blackhawks to overhaul their roster after they won the Stanley Cup — though Kane, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa still make up Chicago's core — and Mark Recchi, one of Boston's biggest stars in 2011, is enjoying retirement.

And if this series has taught anyone anything, it's that nothing works out quite like it's expected.

"You don't want to get ahead of yourself in the process," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "We've got some guys that have been there, they know the experience. ... There's some guys that they're so excited, you dream about this moment. We've got to keep everything in perspective. We want to make sure that we're confident playing the game and putting yourself in the now position as opposed to ahead of yourself."
