Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Goals from Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland just
17 seconds apart in the final two minutes of the third period gave the Chicago
Blackhawks the Stanley Cup championship with a thrilling 3-2 win over the
Boston Bruins in Game 6 at TD Garden.
Boston was leading 2-1, and after killing off a penalty was just 3:39 away
from forcing a Game 7.
Chicago pulled goaltender Corey Crawford from the net inside of 90 seconds and
was able to get the puck deep into the Boston end.
Controlling play along the left side, Jonathan Toews was able to feed a short
pass from the left of the net to the front where Bickell jammed it in to tie
the game with 1:16 to play.
Moments later, a shot from the left point by Johnny Oduya was tipped off the
left post by Michael Frolik. Bolland, though, was there to jam the puck in
with just 58.3 seconds showing.
A stunned Boston team was unable to get any more chances on net before time
expired and the Blackhawks took home their second championship in the past
Chicago's Patrick Kane was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP
and is the fourth American to capture the honor.
