Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup
CHICAGO- The Chicago Blackhawks are drinking from the Stanley Cup for the third time in six seasons.
Duncan Keith scored the game-winner and Corey Crawford finished with 25 saves as the Hawks closed out the finals in six games, beating Tampa Bay 2-0. The game was scoreless until Keith followed up his own rebound and beat Ben Bishop with 2:47 left in the second period. Patrick Kane and Brad Richards drew assists on the Cup-winning goal.
Kane doubled the Blackhawks' lead with his only goal of the series with 5:14 remaining.
Richards finished with two assists and Crawford earned his fifth career postseason shutout.
Before tonight, every game in the series had been decided by one goal. Chicago scored just twice in each of their four victories.
It's the sixth Stanley Cup for the Blackhawks, and the first time they've clinched on home ice since 1938.
