Hawks Win Cup for Second Time in Four Years

BOSTON (AP) - Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored 17 seconds apart in the final 1:16 of the third period and the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup for the second time in four seasons with a stunning comeback, 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins last night.

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.
