BOSTON (AP) - The hard hit that kept Jonathan Toews off the ice for the third period of Game 5 couldn't stop Chicago's captain from leading the Blackhawks to their second Stanley Cup championship in four seasons.
Toews scored Chicago's first goal Monday night and set up the tying goal with 1:16 left in the third period as the Blackhawks rallied with two goals in a span of 17 seconds to beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.
Toews also got the last shot of the game, scrambling from his hands and knees to slide the puck toward an empty net after Boston pulled Tuukka Rask for an extra skater.
The shot missed, but ate up the final few seconds. Toews jumped back to his feet, turned around and headed full speed toward the other end where a swarm of teammates were celebrating the 4-2 series win.
