The Blackhawks won at home the Stanley Cup
Winner of the championship after a long NHL Finals series, the Chicago Blackhawks joined the league history by winning their third Stanley Cup in five years. To the delight of fans and lovers of sports betting, Chicago won the final after six games against the Tampa Bay Lightning (4-2). The new title marks also the third title of the franchise in the North American Hockey championship over the past six seasons (2010-2015).

Chicago won its sixth title (1934, 1938, 1961, 2010, 2013 and 2015), but remains far behind Montreal (24), Toronto (13) and Detroit (11), the three franchises that are ahead in the number of title. In terms of personal achievement, the title of the best player of the playoffs (Conn Smythe Trophy) was awarded to Duncan Keith. Chicago Blackhawks defenseman was decisive throughout the playoffs with 18 assists for an average playing time of 31 minutes in 23 games. In the Game 6, the game leading changed suddenly in the second period. Duncan Keith scored the first goal of the match (38th) before Patrick Kane signed the winning goal (55th). Both teams ended the final series at United Center on a score of 2-0. This is the first time since 1938 that the Blackhawks raise the Stanley Cup at home.
