Chicago Blackhawks win Stanley Cup in 17 seconds
With one minute left in the third period, the Chicago Blackhawks were down 2-1 to the Boston Bruins in Game 6. In an effort to avoid Game 7 in the Stanley Cup finals, the Hawks pulled goalie Corey Crawford and Bryan Bickell scored to tie the game up. Just 17 seconds later, Dave Bolland got yet another one into Boston's net. The hockey team was able to hold off the Bruins for the last minute of the game, and raise the Stanley Cup into the air for a second time in four years.
''In 2010, we didn't really know what we were doing. We just, we played great hockey and we were kind of oblivious to how good we were playing,'' Hawks' captain, Jonathan Toews said. ''This time around, we know definitely how much work it takes and how much sacrifice it takes to get back here and this is an unbelievable group.''
The win was the perfect way to end the season, which started with a record-breaking 21-0-3 streak. The Blackhawks returned home shortly after 4 a.m. at O'Hare International Airport where hundreds of fans anxiously awaited the team's return.
