Blackhawks Win The Stanley Cup With This Miraculous Comeback [VIDEO]

2013 NHL Stanley Cup Final - Game Six

Over the last few years, while I find both to be highly entertaining, I have still found myself drawn in more by the NHL Stanley Cup Playoff than the NBA Playoffs. Call me a pugilist or whatever you want, there’s just something about the raw intensity that gets turned up a few notches when the NHL regular season concludes and the chase for Lord Stanley’s Cup begins. And last night, the final minutes of the Stanley Cup Final were the pièce de résistance to another amazing year of NHL Playoff hockey.

As the final 2 minutes approached in the game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Boston Bruins, it seemed all but certain that we were looking at a winner-takes-all Game 7 back in Chicago later this week. Boston was leading 2-1 and hope was fleeting for the team representing “The Windy City,” but then everything changed within the span of 17 seconds – take a look and see for yourself!

As I watched the final minutes of that game, I couldn’t help but think of a phrase from the intro to ABC’s “Wide World of Sports” with the late Jim McKay – “the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat.” While it was extremely special to witness such an amazing comeback live on television, it was also a bit heartbreaking to watch a team that represented the city of Boston with so much pride and honor since the Boston Marathon bombings have their season come to a close in that manner. The Bruins proved throughout the last 2 months that they are truly #BostonStrong and they have done their fans proud – but somewhere, former goaltender Tim Thomas is laughing hysterically while polishing his Conn Smythe Trophy from 2011.
