On this date in Chicago Blackhawks history,

On June 9, 2010 The Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 in overtime of Game #6 to win the franchises 4th Stanley Cup.  The overtime goal was scored by Patrick Kane on a dipsy-do move on the side boards then a shot that only Kane himself saw go in on first glance.  Patrick Kane was skating and celebrating by Antti Niemi before a replay would show all Chicago Blackhawks fans the greatest news in most of their lifetimes…Good Goal.

The Hawks victory ended a 49 year Stanley Cup drought with the last Cup being won by Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita back in 1961.

Here are the names of the Blackhawks plyers  that appear on the Stanley Cup from the 2010 Chicago Blackhawks:


The Kane Cup winning goal even after last night’s winner is still by far the best goal scored in Blackhawks history in my lifetime.  Here is the video of the Kane Cup winner and yes it never gets old watching it.

It’s pretty exciting that on the three-year anniversary of this goal, Kane scored another OT classic to put the Hawks into the Stanley Cup finals for the 12 time in team history and second time in four seasons.

The best day ever so far as a Hawks fan happened on this date in 2010!
