A look at the frantic final finish of Game 6 of Stanley Cup Final

BOSTON - A look at the final 89 seconds of Chicago's dramatic 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night that clinched the championship for the Blackhawks:

___

1:29 — With Chicago trailing 2-1, goalie Corey Crawford goes to the bench to give the Blackhawks an extra skater on the ice.

1:16 — After a scrum along the boards, Blackhawks defenceman Duncan Keith makes a nice pass to centre Jonathan Toews, who skates toward the left side of the net. He sends a pass to Bryan Bickell in the middle of the ice, and the big forward beats goalie Tuukka Rask with a shot to tie it 2-2.

1:16 — Boston centre David Krejci wins the ensuing faceoff against Chicago centre Dave Bolland, but the Blackhawks quickly get the puck.

0:59 — Blackhawks defenceman Michal Rozsival takes a long slap shot that goes off the left post, and Bolland is there to poke the puck in, giving Chicago a 3-2 lead. Bolland finishes with three goals in the playoffs, all in the final series.

0:10 — Krejci gets off one last unsuccessful shot for the Bruins. Toews helps the Blackhawks run out the clock at the other end of the ice.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
