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

You could feel it. You could feel that they were going after each other and trying to win the game for their team.
