Jonathan Toews was out. Same for Patrick Kane. Then the Chicago Blackhawks blew a lead in the final two minutes.
Andrew Shaw stopped a long scoring drought. Jonathan Toews had another big game. The Chicago Blackhawks had 13 players with at least one point.
Marian Hossa scored two goals, and Kris Versteeg and Bryan Bickell also tallied to lead the Chicago Blackhawks past Anaheim 4-2 on Friday night to end the Ducks' eight-game winning streak and hand them only their second loss in the past 20 games.
Bryan Bickell looks around and sees Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and the rest of a good young nucleus. He likes Chicago, and the Blackhawks are the only NHL team he has ever known.
Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored 17 seconds apart in the final 1:16 of the third period and the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup for the second time in four seasons with a stunning comeback, 3-2 victory over the Bruins on Monday night.
The Boston Bruins and goalie Tuukka Rask were less than 80 seconds away from a seventh game of the Stanley Cup Final.
Chicago's top line has been too much for the Boston Bruins to handle.
In a series that's seen three games go to overtime, this one had its tense moments and both teams were without star players down the stretch.
Marian Hossa scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and the Blackhawks moved to the brink of the Stanley Cup finals with a 3-2 victory Thursday night in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, handing the Kings their first home loss since March 23.
Bryan Bickell and Michal Handzus scored on consecutive shots in the second period, and Chicago chased goalie Jonathan Quick on its way to a 4-2 victory over the Kings in Game 2 on Sunday night.
Bryan Bickell scored in overtime on a two-on-one rush, and the Chicago Blackhawks started the playoffs on a winning note after dominating the regular season, beating the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night.
"I think just the excitement is going to bring more energy from both teams," said Chicago forward Bryan Bickell, who missed time during the end of the regular season. "I'm sure those first couple of shifts or first couple periods you don't feel pain because you're just so excited to be out there."
"It is nice we can do it without them, but they're a big part of our team for how many years?" forward Bryan Bickell said. "We're just hoping that when they come back, they're healthy, and give us a spark. We just need to do what we did tonight through the rest of the games."
