Dramatic shifts in the scoreboard is not supposed to happen in hockey. In baseball, a grand slam can flip flop the score. In hoops, a team winning by two can be brought to their knees by their opponents long range jump shot. Just ask the Denver Broncos what can happen to the complexion of a football game when there is an 80 yard pass completion. But hockey is supposed to be different, but not last night. With the Boston Bruins just 1:16 seconds from forcing a Game Seven, the Chicago Blackhawks scored the tying and winning goals just 17 seconds apart allowing the Blackhawks to hoist the Stanley Cup for the second time since 2010.
