Chicago Wins The Stanley Cup With An Utterly Stunning 11th-Hour Comeback

With two goals in 17 seconds as the game was slipping away from them, the Chicago Blackhawks stormed back and claimed the Cup in Boston.

It was a comeback for the ages, and when all was settled, the Chicago Blackhawks raised the Stanley Cup for the fifth time in franchise history.

It had looked like the night was Boston’s. With 1:16 left he Bruins led 2-1, and the Blackhawks had pulled their goalie in desperation when Bryan Bickell slapped the puck by Boston’s Tuukka Rask. Overtime yet again seemed imminent.

But Chicago’s Dave Bolland would have none of that. And this tap-in 17 seconds later, with only 58.3 seconds left to play, moved Chicago ahead for good.

The Bruins must’ve thought they had a potential Game 7 on Wednesday all set to go when Milan Lucic put them ahead with this nifty goal with 12:11 left.

Alas, Chicago would not lose the lead after its incredible last-minute comeback in Boston. And Andrew Shaw, who had almost been knocked out by a a puck to the face earlier…

…hoisted the Cup while still bleeding. Because neither Sharp nor any of his teammates cared a lick about anything that happened before a finish that will go down in hockey history.
