Blackhawks: Stanley Cup Champions

Danny Briere’s 30 points in the playoffs weren’t enough as the Flyers dropped game six, allowing the Blackhawks to take Lord Stanley’s Cup. The game was intense from the start and the pace was fast. It was something that went in Chicago’s favor, but Philly hung on for a bit.

Patrick’s Kane goal that sneaked past Michael Leighton was not one of the greatest, but it won him and his team the cup. The Buffalo native has already been talked about around the area and many fans are happy for him.

Kane’s shot from the lower left circle found the inside of the right post and went through Leighton and banked back into the goal. The play was reviewed briefly, slowing the celebration, but eventually it was ruled a goal — and the Hawks went wild.

With the win, Chicago ended a 49 year championship drought. There are only a couple of teams ahead of Buffalo who have gone the longest without winning it.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
