Garden.  Bickell  jammed it in to  tie the game  with 1:16 to play and Bolland tallied  with just 58.3 seconds showing on the clock.

thanks  in  part to  starting the  season with 24  consecutive games without a regulation  loss, The first  team to win the Cup as the top overall seed since Detroit  in 2008,  the  Blackhawks  won their  fifth  title  in team  history. Chicago's Patrick Kane was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP.
