4. Duncan Keith, Game 6 vs Tampa Bay in 2015
In 2015, the Chicago Blackhawks faced off against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Stanley Cup Finals. During that exciting series, many big moments happened. Of course, there was no bigger moment than Duncan Keith‘s Game 6 Stanley Cup-clinching goal.
Keith grabbed his rebound off of Ben Bishop with just under three minutes left in the second period. It turns out, that’s all the team needed. Corey Crawford played elite that game, keeping the Lightning off the scoreboard.
During all of the team’s cup runs, Keith played a huge role. 2015 was no different.
Keith won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2015. He had three goals and 18 assists during the playoffs. Keith averaged playing over 30 minutes per game, which he played in 23 games. That’s crazy to think about.
The future Hall of Famer established himself as an iron man throughout the 2010s. He is considered one of the greatest defensemen in Blackhawks’ history.
After three cups, many awards, and being an iron man, it’s fair to say Chicago runs on Duncan.
