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 four years.
Chicago's Patrick Kane was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP and is the fourth American to capture the honor.
