                      Final Score: Chicago 2, Tampa Bay 0
 
 Chicago,  IL (SportsNetwork.com)  - For  the third  time in  six seasons,  the
 Chicago Blackhawks are Stanley Cup champions. Duncan  Keith,  the team's  iron
 man  and anchor  on  the blue  line,  scored  late in  the  second period  and
 Corey  Crawford  was marvelous in  net as the  Blackhawks posted a 2-0 victory
 over  the Tampa  Bay Lightning in Game  6 of the Finals on Monday night. Keith
 was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoffs' most valuable player after
 matching  a  franchise record for points  by a defenseman in a postseason with
 21,  which was  set  by Chris  Chelios  in  1992. He  also  became the  fourth
 skater since 1998 to log over 700 minutes in a postseason. Crawford  turned in
 a   25-save  shutout   and   Patrick  Kane   also  lit   the   lamp  for   the
 Blackhawks,  who  won the  Stanley Cup  on home  ice for  the first time since
 1938.  Ben Bishop,  who battled an injury throughout the series, made 30 saves
 for the Lightning.
