The Blackhawks' run for the cup was definitely worth celebrating. Blackhawks entered the postseason with the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and lost just six games en route to the Stanley Cup Finals. Once there they engaged in a highly entertaining series that featured five overtimes in three of the six games. The series clincher was no different in terms of entertainment. The game seemed to be headed to a seventh game with Boston up 2-1 with less than two minutes left in the third period, but the Blackhawks scored back-to-back goals from Brian Bickell and Dave Bolland to give Chicago the 3-2 lead with 58 seconds left. It was a devastating finish to a well-deserved championship, and a moment that is sure to go down in Chicago sports history.
