After beating the Calgary Flames 3-2 on Tuesday night, the mood for the Toronto Maple Leafs was much more relief than happiness.
In 17 stunning seconds, Tuukka Rask's solid postseason was shattered.
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.
Hossa's surprise scratch from Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals — and the one-word explanation, "upper," for the part of his body that was injured — is part of a long-running cat-and-mouse game NHL teams play on the theory that any information about injuries is a competitive disadvantage.
Marian Hossa is one of the Chicago Blackhawks' top scorers, with three game-winning goals already this postseason.
Much as they would love to get big contributions from Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, the Chicago Blackhawks have shown they can win even when their biggest stars aren't lighting up the scoreboard.
Andrew Shaw popped back up after he was knocked down and skated to the front of the goal to get a deflection on Dave Bolland's tip for the winning score in the Blackhawks' 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins in the fifth-longest game in the history of the NHL's biggest series.
Milan Lucic and the Boston Bruins were rolling along and in command.
Tuukka Rask needed just four words to sum up the goal that beat him and the Boston Bruins.
The top of the list includes Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa. Patrick Sharp is coming off another great playoff series, and Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland have come up with big postseason goals in the past.
Patrick Kane quickly called his barber and got his playoff haircut of choice, a mullet. Team captain Jonathan Toews and defenseman Duncan Keith were starting postseason beards.
"It wasn't pretty, but we'll take it," Bolland said. "I don't think we played the prettiest game or we made the prettiest moves. But in a slump like that, just to get out of that, it's great to get out of it."
"Thank you for everything Chicago! Such amazing memories," he wrote on Twitter. "I look forward to playing in front of my home fans wearing the Maple Leaf."
