Hawks Win Cup

The Chicago Blackhawks avoided a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup Final by coming back late to beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 in Game 6.

The game was tied at one in the 3rd when Milan Lucic scored with 7:49 to play. It looked as if Boston may hang on to win until Bryan Bickell beat Tuukka Rask at 18:44 with the net empty and just 17 seconds later, David Bolland put one behind Rask to shock the crowd at the TD Garden and give Chicago its second cup in four years and their 5th championship in all.

Patrick Kane was named the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy.

In what has become a tradition, commissioner Gary Bettman was booed loudly as he came onto the ice to present the Conn Smythe and Stanley Cup.
