It’s all still something of a blur. That final, frantic, 76 seconds.

What happened? How did it happen? A shot, a deflection, a bounce, a redirect, a pushback of hysterical and historical proportions – and suddenly the Stanley Cup was won.

And even a day later, after watching the highlights, after looking back at the replays, seeing the two kids who once played together on the Toronto Red Wings, tying the game, winning the game, it’s all so impossible to quantify, the Chicago Blackhawks won the craziest, bounciest, back-and-forth, hold-your-breath Stanley Cup.

Was it the best final series ever? That’s a matter of opinion.
