CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS - 2013 STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS

Post  Admin on Tue Jun 25, 2013 3:42 am



With 76 seconds away from defeat and a trip home for a decisive seventh game, Chicago's Bryan Bickell tied it. Then, while the Bruins were settling in for another overtime in a series that has already had its share, Dave Bolland scored 17 seconds later to give the Blackhawks a 3-2 victory over Boston in Game 6 to become the 2013 Stanley Cup champions.

The team that set an NHL record with a 24-game unbeaten streak to start the lockout-shortened season won three straight games after falling behind 2-1 in the best-of-seven finals, rallying from a deficit in the series and in its finale.  Goaltender Corey Crawford made 23 saves, and captain Jonathan Toews returned from injury to add a goal and an assist in the first finals between Original Six teams since 1979.



Chicago forward Patrick Kane won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the postseason's most valuable player and just like in 2010, the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in a Game 6 on the road.

All that's left now is this Sunday where the NHL will host the 2013 Draft from New Jersey.  Entering the new season as an Eastern Conference team, the Detroit Red Wings look to add new faces as we bid farewell to a shortened 2013 season.
