Leading up to Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals, there was some drama. Superstars Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks and Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins were injured. The Blackhawks were toppling the Bruins’ defense, especially their captain Zdeno Chara. The Blackhawks kept dominating the early game, setting the tone against the Bruins.
Fast forward to Game 6, and the Bruins played the first 10 minutes like there was no tomorrow, because well, there wasn’t if they didn’t win! Then, with only 10 minutes left in the 1st period, the Bruins scored a goal when Tyler Seguin took a pass from Daniel Paille and controlled it before backhanding it across the middle to Chris Kelly for scoring.
Unfortunately for the Bruins, their power play ended early in the second quarter, when Boston evened the odds. Toews shot and scored, and the tie carried on until there was 7:49 left in the third. Just when it seemed like there would be a Game 7 for the sixth time in the past 10 years, Bryan Bickell and Dave Bollad each scored a mere 17 seconds apart in the final 1:16. The Blackhawks shut it all down soon after in Game 6!
