The Chicago Blackhawks stunned the Boston Bruins, scoring twice in the final 1:16 to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 win in decisive Game Six for the Chicago Blackhawks, giving Chicago their second Stanley Cup in four seasons. With their backs against the wall, Boston dominated play early, outshooting Chicago 12-6 (32-8 in shot attempts) in the first period, but only held a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes, on a goal by Chris Kelly. Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews evened the score in the second period and the Blackhawks started to turn the momentum. Despite Chicago holding a shooting edge in the third period, Bruins LW Milan Lucic broke the tie with 7:49 left in the third period and, at that point, it was looking like the series could be heading back to Chicago for Game Seven. With the game on the line, Toews and Patrick Kane created a scoring opportunity, with Toews feeding Bryan Bickell across the crease and Bickell fired it home to tie the game. Bickell, who had nine goals in 48 regular season games, scored his ninth goal of the playoffs in his 23rd game. Scoring with just more than a minute remaining sure made it look like overtime was coming, but the Blackhawks didnt get the memo. They quickly entered the Bruins zone and Dave Bolland banged in a rebound to suddenly flip the script. Bolland, who has been a stellar playoff performer in previous seasons, struggled at times in this playoff season as he was coming back from injury, scoring one point in his first dozen playoff games, then added five points in six games in the Stanley Cup Final. As the playoffs wounds down, it became a war of attrition between Boston and Chicago as injuries started to affect player availability and performance. Bruins RW Nathan Horton was playing with chronic shoulder injury that limited his effectiveness and had two assists and seven shots on goal in six games against Chicago. In Game Six, Bruins RW Jaromir Jagr was limited to just 6:27 of ice time, while C Patrice Bergeron, who left Game Five early, played 17:45 with a broken rib, torn cartilage and a separated shoulder. In Bergerons absence, David Krejci, the playoffs leading scorer with 26 points in 22 games, played 23:37 to lead all Boston forwards. Chicago had their own injuries to deal with. Toews was held out of action in the third period of Game Five, due to a suspected concussion, but he was vital to the Blackhawks effort in Game Six, playing 20:12 and scoring a goal and an assist to lead all Chicago forwards. Marian Hossa, who was playing in his fourth final in six years, missed Game Three of the Final before returning to play in a diminished state for the rest of the series despite a disc in his back pushing against a nerve, leaving his foot numb when he played. Then there was Bickell, who suffered a Grade Two knee sprain late in the Western Conference Final against Los Angeles, and injury that under normal circumstances might cause him to miss three-to-four weeks of action. Bickell, who had been a playoff beast, didnt record a point in the first three games of the Final, but contributed four points in the last three games. Blackhawks RW Patrick Kane, who had 19 points and a plus-7 rating, was named the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as Playoff MVP, but there were no obvious choices on the Blackhawks side. Bickell had 17 points and was plus-11, Patrick Sharp had a playoff-leading 10 goals and 16 points and D Duncan Keith had 13 points and a plus-10 rating. G Corey Crawford probably had the best claim to the award among Blackhawks, with a .932 save percentage in the postseason. Even though the Bruins didnt win, G Tuukka Rask and his .940 save percentage would have been an entirely justifiable selection, as would Krejci, who was seven points clear of any other scorer in the postseason. Bruins LW Milan Lucic had 19 points, was plus-12 and led the playoffs with 102 hits. Bickell was second with 85. Part of the story for the Blackhawks were the contributions they received from players like Michal Handzus, the 36-year-old cast-off from San Jose who scored 11 points and had a plus-7 rating filling a second-line centre role for Chicago, while playing with a broken wrist and torn MCL. Michael Frolik (10 points) and Andrew Shaw (nine points) were also effective forwards on the lower half of the Blackhawks depth chart. Boston had contributions from the likes of Dan Paille (nine points) and received 17 goals from their defenceman, led by Johnny Boychuk with six (Boychuk scored one goal in 44 regular season games). At the same time, the Bruins needed more from offensive performers like Jagr, who had zero goals (and 10 assists) on 58 shots in the playoffs and Tyler Seguin, who set up Bostons first goal in Game six, but managed one goal and eight points in 22 playoff games. Its not that Jagr and Seguin didnt play well, both had shots and good possession numbers, but at some point, the shots have to turn into goals if its going to make a difference in playoff results. Toews, Hossa, Keith and rookie Brandon Saad were among those leading the Blackhawks in possession metrics for the postseason, and Toews could have been lumped in with Jagr and Seguin, except that Toews found the net in two of the last three games of the postseason, scoring a total of five points. Its such a thin line between winning and losing that a goal or two from underperforming players could have shifted the balance in the series. The Blackhawks got those goals and the Bruins didnt. In the end, the Blackhawks were the best team in the regular season and earned their favourite status going into the Final with excellent possession stats. In a series which had three overtime games and no game with a margin greater than two goals, Chicago outscored Boston 18-14 over the six games, for a well-deserved and hard-fought victory, if perhaps shocking in its sudden swerve ending.

General Manager Sam Presti said the three-time All-Star had knee swelling that would not subside, and the procedure was intended to solve the problem. He said doctors determined that a loose stitch was to blame for the swelling, that Westbrooks lateral meniscus has healed properly and the procedure was successful. Gilbert Arenas Jersey .

Custom Washington Wizards Jerseys . -- What Anthony Jennings lacked in experience, LSU more than compensated for with a talented supporting cast in the Outback Bowl.The month of May seems like so long ago for the Blue Jays. Since building a healthy lead in the East with an incredible 21-9 record in the second month of the season, the Jays have fallen off dramatically. Since June 1, they are only 14-19 and have actually only won eight of their last 27 games. They are still only two games back of first place Baltimore in the East but if the slide doesnt stop now, its going to be all over by the end of this month. A boost to the starting rotation would have been a good thing when the Jays were in first place and tearing up the league at the plate. But with Brett Lawrie gone for the rest of July with his broken finger, and now Edwin Encarnacion on the 15-day DL with a Grade 2 quad muscle strain, the Jays need to add a bat - preferably someone who can play second base or third or both. It almost has to be a right-hand bat considering the Jays are the worst hitting team in the American League against lefties. Since the Jays are in buying mode theyll probably have to target the teams that have no reasonable hope of getting even a Wild Card berth. In the American League, I count six teams that are realistically out of it, although Im still hesitant to count out Tampa Bay because the East is so weak. So for arguments sake, the six are Tampa Bay in the East, the White Sox and Minnesota in the Central and Texas and Houston in the West. Since Boston and Tampa Bay likely wont trade within their own division, that leaves four teams the Jays can talk with. Since Houston wont give up Jose Altuve and the Twins likely wont surrender Brian Dozier who fit the bill as right-handed hitters and solid second baseman, youre down to Texas and the White Sox. Since the Rangers are so injury ravaged, I cant see them making any significant deals until the off-season. That leaves Chicago. The White Sox have a right-hand hitting second baseman in Gordon Beckham, whom the Blue Jays were rumoured to be interested in in the off-season. Beckham is hitting .248 this season with seven homers and 24 runs batted in. Hes 24 years old. Cleveland is hanging around the .500 mark and isnt technically out, but in a week or two could decide to move some people. Theyve got 33-year-old utilityman Mike Aviles - yes, the same guy the Blue Jays got as compensation from Boston for manager John Farrell. Hes a .272 career hitter who can play second or third and maybe even shortstop in an emergency. In the National League, the six teams on the outside looking in include the Mets and the Phillies in the East, the Cubs in the Central and San Diego, Colorado and Arizona in the West.dddddddddddd The Phils have a good one in Chase Utley, but he reportedly wont waive his no-trade clause to go to a team with artificial turf such as the Blue Jays. The Mets Daniel Murphy is rumoured to be available, but he is New Yorks only All-Star rep and hits left handed. Still, hes hitting .294 with seven homers and 35 runs batted in go with 11 stolen bases. The Cubs Darwin Barney at 28 is having his second straight down year at the plate, hitting .219 though he does hit right. The Jays may have an interest in a man they originally drafted in second baseman Aaron Hill. Aaron is two years removed from his last great season with the D-Backs and is hitting only .241 this season with six homers and 42 runs batted in. The right-handed hitter is also 32 years old and is owed just shy of $30 million through 2016. J.P Morosi of Fox Sports has heard that the Jays are talking with San Diego about third baseman Chase Headley. The 30-year-old switch hitter, who has had back trouble on and off over the past couple of years, is only hitting .217 with six homers and 25 runs batted in. On top of that, any team acquiring him would have to make a qualifying offer of about $15 million to retain a draft pick at the end of the first round should Headley decide to walk. Then again if he decides to stay, a team is on the hook for $15 million for a player who may or may not be worth anything close to that. The Padres also have a 25-year-old right hand hitting second baseman in Jedd Gyorko, who cracked 23 homers last year in his first season. But this time around hes only batting .162 with five homers and 24 runs batted in. Of that entire bunch, I would probably opt for the Mets Murphy with Aaron Hill a close second. Unusual Repair Talk about the miracles of modern surgery. On Monday Arizona GM Kevin Towers is having surgery to repair a damaged vocal cord. Hes having it replaced with the vocal cord from a cadaver. Towers figures he will be able to talk again in three or four days and should be back at work in a week. Boston Turnaround They still have over 70 games to go, but the Boston Red Sox are close to doing something very unusual: going from last place, to first and a World Series victory, and back to last place. The Bosox dropped back into the basement behind Tampa Bay at 39-49. In 2012 under Bobby Valentine, they finished 69-93. Then a year ago John Farrell led them to a 97-65 mark and a World Series victory over St. Louis and now they are cellar dwellers again. ' ' '
