BOSTON - The Bruins allow two goals in 17 seconds in the third period as the Chicago Blackhawks skate away with a 3-2 victory and the Stanley Cup after winning Game 6 before a stunned crowd at TD Garden on Monday night.

CSNNE Bruins insider Joe Haggerty and Comcast SportsNet's Mike Giardi break down an "utter collapse" by the B's.

"Absolute stunner," Giardi said after watching the Blackhawks' Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland score 17 seconds apart to turn the Bruins from forcing a Game 7 in Chicago to being sent home for the summer as Chicago wins its second Cup in four years. "Shocking the way they fell apart."

Said Haggerty: "An utter collapse in the third period. Seems like everything was well in hand...then Bickell and Bolland and it's all done."
