Stanley Cup Final: Relive every game from Blackhawks-Lightning
Can we officially call the Chicago Blackhawks a dynasty?
With three Cups in six seasons, it may be time.
The Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup on Monday night, defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 in Game 6. But unlike the other two Cups in the Toews / Kane / Keith era, this one was clinched in the Windy City, the first time the good folks of Chicago witnessed the Cup being skated around on the ice since 1938.
Fittingly, the game-winner was scored by all-everything defenseman Duncan Keith, who averaged more than 30 minutes of ice time throughout the postseason. He also led all players in plus-minus in the postseason, and for his efforts was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy.
Between the pipes, Corey Crawford turned back 25 shots for the shutout win, while Lightning goalie Ben Bishop revealed after the loss that he had been playing with a torn groin suffered in Game 2 of the Final.
Check below for a recap of every game in the Stanley Cup Final, as well as every game played in the 2015 postseason.
