Chicago Blackhawks: Greatest 17 Seconds In Chicago Sports History


The greatest 17 seconds in Chicago sports history took place in Game #6 of the Stanley Cup Finals.  With the Hawks trailing 2-1 with less than 1:30 left the Hawks pulled Corey Crawford to get the extra skater on and Jonathan Toews got the puck and fed it to Bryan Bickell for the game tying score. Here is the highlight..

The Boston Bruins could have been in shock after letting in the tying goal and were not expecting the Hawks to push that hard but maybe coast to overtime.  The Blackhawks didn’t ease up but went for the kill and Dave Bolland put in the Stanley Cup winner just 17 seconds after Bickell tied it with only 58.3 seconds left on the clock!

The fifth Stanley Cup championship in Chicago Blackhawks history, it’s the 2nd Cup in four years and a thrilling Stanley Cup Finals but it will be these two goals in 17 seconds that Chicago fans will remember forever!!

Because it’s the Cup!!

ONE Goal

2013 Stanley Cup Champions!!

    Wow, this is the kind of thing that happens to Chicago, not for Chicago. Growing up in the sixties and seventies was just incredible torture for Chicago sports fans. Since we NEVER won Championships, individual wins meant more. We were fierce fans with no delusions of post-season success, we were simply in it for that game RIGHT NOW. We reveled in single wins, and celebrated them like nobody else. Or even weird losses like that what 19-17 loss in Wrigley.

    However, thanks to the ’85 Bears, those days were suddenly gone. Sox, Hawks, Bulls. Chicago now has the trophies to go with its always broad shoulders. And you know what? It feels effing great!!!!!

    And for character-building losers, we’ll always have the Cubs.

      I totally agree that you usually expect this to happen against us than for us. One thing we might have forgotten about is the Buckner curse was bigger than the Bartman curse. Oh wait that’s baseball!! These highlights will never ever get old to watch!! What a wild and unexpected win

        Yes, it was a great championship series with hair-breadth escapes, long difficult climbs back up, tougness, resilience, dram, elation, the whole works.

        All the things that make up a truly great and storied team for the ages.
