For the third time in six seasons, the Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup. They are now officially a dynasty.
I think it’s now safe to say they are a dynasty – something especially tough to do during this salary-cap era of the NHL.
Game 5 was the turning point, that moment Chicago took a stranglehold on this series and never let go.
Tonight, the game was played very closely to the vest. Duncan Keith scored 17:13 into the second-period to finally break the scoreless tie. Assists were handed to Patrick Kane and ex-Ranger Brad Richards.
Then, with Tampa needing the equalizer, Richards did it again as he setup Kane for the one-timer with just over five-minutes to go in regulation.
Both goalies were fantastic, but Corey Crawford was just a little better as he earned the shutout.

Taking home the Conn Smyth Trophy as the MVP of the Stanley Cup Playoffs was Keith, who also happens to be the best defenseman in the NHL.
Lord Stanley’s Cup resides in Chicago for yet another season.
