The Stanley Cup champions traded Bolland to the Toronto Maple Leafs for three draft picks Sunday at the NHL draft. The Blackhawks received the 51st and 117th picks in this year's draft, and a fourth-rounder next season.
The Boston Bruins had a 2-1 lead with 2 minutes left in Game 6, and the Stanley Cup was all but packed away for a Game 7 back in Chicago.
But then Bryan Bickell tied it with 1:16 left, and Bolland scored 17 seconds later to give the Blackhawks the lead.
Bolland missed the entire first-round series vs. Minnesota with an injury.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
