Toews captains Hawks to Cup, wins Conn Smythe @NHLdotcom

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Jonathan Toews is the second straight kid captain to lift the Stanley Cup.

Quite a performance for the center, who celebrated his 22nd birthday a little more than a month ago. Sidney Crosby captained the Pittsburgh Penguins to the Cup title last year when he was 21.

Toews also nearly finished atop the playoff scoring race with 29 points. Only a three-point night by Philadelphia's Danny Briere in the Cup clincher on Wednesday night kept Toews from a most impressive hat trick of hardware.
