Kane becomes fourth American to win Conn Smythe

BOSTON -- Despite a familiarity with the big moment, Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane couldn't comprehend what he had accomplished Monday night.

His Blackhawks had just finished a comeback for the ages -- scoring the tying and winning goals 17 seconds apart in the dying moments of Game 6 to fashion a 3-2 victory against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden and win the Stanley Cup for the second time in four seasons -- and the usually unflappable Kane was at a loss.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman had already handed Kane the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, he already had a twirl with the Stanley Cup hoisted above his head, and had posed for the team picture with the most cherished trophy his sport knows.

Now, though, he was at a loss for words.

"It is an unbelievable feeling," said Kane, who scored the winning goal when Chicago won the trophy against the Philadelphia Flyers in 2010. "My head is spinning. I don’t know what really happened the past 20 minutes."
