NHL: 'Hawks win NHL championship

The Chicago Blackhawks are the NHL champions after defeating the Boston Bruins 3-2 Monday for their second Stanley Cup title in the past four years.

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.

Chicago scored two goals, 17 seconds apart, in the waning moments of the third period to switch a 2-1 deficit to a championship victory.
