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!!
