Blackhawks might wanna stop getting so cocky

If the Chicago Blackhawks are nervous about getting their second straight Stanley Cup Playoffs started, it doesn't show.
 
Patrick Kane is cracking jokes about his new playoffs-inspired mullet. Andrew Ladd is "getting the itch" to win the Cup again, after winning it with Carolina in 2006. Jonathan Toews is sick of talking about goalie Antti Niemi's lack of playoff experience. And then there's Niemi, who often answers questions with just a word or two. 
 

Check out the latest story on the series from NHL.com

You know what this reminds me of? The Titans players' attitude in the offseason and training camp a year ago. They were all happy-go-lucky and joking around and Ustreaming, and then the season started. They lost their first six games after being so confident just a few weeks before after their best in the league 13-3 season. 

Moral of this story? Don't get overconfident, it'll come back and bite you. I hope the Blackhawks don't learn this lesson.
