SHOTLIST: CHICAGO, 28 JUNE, 2013, SOURCE: CBS **RESTRICTIONS: NO RESALE for non-editorial purposes No Japan No Free over the air broadcasters in Australia No US cable news outlets, free over the air networks or stations, their websites and their mobile phone services SOUNDBITE 1 Jonathan Toews (man), Blackhawks captain (English, 23 sec) "This is unbelieveable. For the guys who were here in 2010, we didn't think there was a chance that we could out-match that performance by the fans, but you guys did it somehow. This shows how unbelievable this city it. To bring the Stanley Cup home twice in four years is absolutely unbelievable. Thank you for coming out guys, thanks." -VAR of crowds in Grant Park -VAR of open-top bus parade through Chicago -VAR of players celebrating on stage with trophy ------------------------------------------------- AFP TEXT STORY: Ihockey-NHL-finals NHL: 'Hawks rally past stunned Bruins for NHL title BOSTON, Massachusetts, June 24, 2013 (AFP) - Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored just 17 seconds apart in the waning moments of the third period as Chicago stunned Boston 3-2 to capture their second Stanley Cup title in the past four years. Bickell scored his ninth goal of the post-season with 76 seconds left in regulation to tie it 3-3 after Chicago had pulled goaltender Corey Crawford for an extra attacker. Bolland then capped the epic comeback by hammering home the winner at 19:01 of the final period for the Hawks, who took the best-of-seven series four games to two. Chicago forward Patrick Kane was named MVP of the playoffs as he led the Blackhawks with nine goals and 19 points in 23 games. When the final buzzer sounded the Blackhawks celebrated by mobbing goaltender Crawford in front of his net. As is the tradition, the Chicago players took turns hoisting the Stanley Cup trophy and parading it around the Bruins' TD Garden arena. Even a bloodied Andrew Shaw took his turn with the cup despite bleeding from a cut on his right cheek after he took a puck to the face earlier in the game. Boston had one last chance to tie the game and send it to overtime as they pulled their goaltender Tuukka Rask but Chicago captain Jonathan Toews made a diving stab at a loose puck in the neutral zone to push it back into the Bruins' zone and away from danger. Boston led 2-1 with just over a minute left in the third and appeared to be heading to a victory and a deciding game seven on Wednesday when the wheels fell off. Rask couldn't believe his misfortune as he angrily threw his goal stick into the Boston bench during the final timeout of the contest. Top seeded Chicago becomes the first team to win Presidents' Trophy -- as the team with the best record in the regular season -- and the Stanley Cup in the same season since Detroit beat Pittsburgh in 2008. It was a bitter pill for the Bruins who had an amazing comeback of their own earlier in the 2013 playoffs by rallying to overcome a three-goal deficit in the third period to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 in overtime in game seven of their first-round series.
