Chicago Blackhawks Score Two Goals in the Finals 80 Seconds of Game 6 to Win the Stanley Cup (Video)
Well NBA, the NHL will see your exciting, “Oh man, what a game!” Game 6, and raise you a, “Holy $h#t, that was insane.”
Last night, if you blinked towards the end of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals, you missed one hell of an ending. With 1:17 left in the third period we were heading to Game 7. With 1:15 left in the third we were heading to overtime. And with 59 second left in the third we were about to watch the Chicago Blackhawks hoist the Stanley Cup for the second time in four years.
The Boston Bruins took a 2-1 lead with seven minutes left in the third on a goal from Chris Kelly, and they dug deep to hold onto that lead for the remainder of the period and force a Game 7 back in Chicago. However, with 1:16 left in regulation, Bryan Bicknell tied the game with his ninth goal of the playoffs, and just 17 seconds later, Dave Bolland put Chicago on the brink of a championship when he banged home a rebound to make it 3-2.
The Boston Bruins, meanwhile, were in a state of absolute shock.
Take a look:
The great irony, of course, is that the Boston Bruins did pretty much the same thing to the Toronto Maple Lears in Game 7 of their first round series this year. So I guess now they know how it feels.
In any case, that was quite the ending to quite the series. And it was the second incredible Game 6 that us sports fans have been treated to in the past week. So here’s the question I leave you with: which Game 6 was better? NBA Finals or Stanley Cup Finals?
