2. Dave Bolland, Game 6 vs Boston in 2013
They say in the playoffs, the most unlikely of heroes become heroes. That’s what happened for Dave Bolland.
The Chicago Blackhawks were down 2-1 against the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals with less than 1:30 to go. Bryan Bickell scored a goal with 1:16 remaining in the game to tie it up.
Everyone was expecting the game to go to overtime. Well, everyone except the Blackhawks.
After the Bickell goal, the Blackhawks went down the ice quickly and did one of the most rememberable things in recent hockey history. They scored two goals in 17 seconds to win the Stanley Cup.
Johnny Oduya took a shot from the blue line that bounced off the post right in front of Bolland. All Bolland had to do was tap the puck in the net.
Bolland put the puck in the net to give the Blackhawks a 3-2 lead with less than a minute to go. It was one of the fastest, craziest moments in recent memory. The Blackhawks have a way of being dramatic. Every time they seem down and out, they find a way to bounce back.
During the 2010s, they had so many amazing moments that won’t ever happen again.
