Never thought in a million years this moment would ever happen. Clearly shocked by the look on my face. pic.twitter.com/MQ7yBhMIpT

Patrick Kane of the Blackhawks won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.
Jonathan Toews scored his third goal of the playoffs to tie it at 4:24 of the second of Game 6.
Boston, needing a win to extend the series to a deciding Game 7, came out aggressively and led 1-0 after one period on Chris Kelly's second goal of the playoffs. The Bruins outshot the Blackhawks 12-6 in the first period but the margin dropped to 18-15 through 40 minutes.
Bruins right wing Jaromir Jagr was shaken up in the first period and eventually was replaced on the second line.
The Blackhawks will hold a victory parade in Chicago for the second time in four seasons.
