The lasting visual -- as it typically is when the Stanley Cup Final comes to an end -- will be of Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews taking the famed trophy from NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.
For the Boston Bruins, it'll be a series of images, a B-roll of nightmares where a one-goal lead turned into 3-2 defeat in a matter of 17 seconds in the closing moments of Game 6 of the final at TD Garden on Monday night.
"Forever," Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk said. "You are going to remember it forever. You remember winning it, but you remember losing it a little bit more."
It slipped away so quickly. Both bruised teams looked to be headed on a plane bound for Chicago for a Game 7, which would have been Wednesday. Then Toews tossed the puck out front to Bryan Bickell, who slipped it past Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask.
Game tied 2-2 with 1:16 remaining in regulation, just as Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford was pulled for an extra attacker.
BEST OF MAXIM
After celebrating their Stanley Cup win in the locker room, Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews and some of his teammates took the celebration out onto the ice. The Bruins TD Garden was completely empty and Toews did a little shimmy and then moonwalked on the ice. It was cool to see “Captain Serious” having fun and letting loose.

Jonathan Toews is one of the most reserved star players in the NHL, so seeing him open up a bit after the Blackhawks won their second Stanley Cup in four years was pretty great. Check out the captain moonwalking on the TD Garden ice following the win.

After returning home to Chicago after winning the Stanley Cup, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews went crowd surfing at a Chicago Bar called the Board Room. Looks like it’s going to be an awesome summer for the Blackhawks and their captain.

Johnny Boychuk will be on the ice on Monday night.
The Bruins defenseman will not face supplemental discipline for his hit on Jonathan Toews, as first reported by Darren Dreger of TSN. Boychuk hit Toews high midway through the second period. Toews came out of the game and did not return. His injury was described as “upper body.”
The hit did not draw a penalty on the ice. It was...
The playoff beard never quite came in for Jonathan Toews. Same for Patrick Kane.
It's OK. It looks as if they are going to get plenty of practice in the coming years.
The Chicago Blackhawks will be able to bring back much of their young core of top players next season when they try to become the first repeat Stanley Cup winner since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998.
Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says forward Jonathan Toews is ''100 percent ready to go'' for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins.
Quenneville says the Selke Trophy winner felt fine on Sunday and in the morning skate at the TD Garden on Monday.
The Bruins are a little less certain about Patrice Bergeron, who's their top forward...
Jonathan Toews is "doing much better." Patrice Bergeron is "day-to-day." The questions about Marian Hossa and Nathan Horton have subsided, even though both are likely still hurting.
Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final could come down to which team is healthier Monday night at TD Garden, although -- as is often the case this time of year -- it's difficult to judge...
I was out of town at a WoO race in Fergus Falls, MN, but I did see the hit in question last night on my iPhone. I showed the video to the guy I was at the races with and said, "Boychuk is going to get suspended by the NHL for this hit." Apparently, the NHL saw fit not to suspend Johnny Boychuk for game six. The NHL didn't even have a hearing and ruled it was a legal...

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
So Monday night, the Stanley Cup will be waiting in the wings for the Chicago Blackhawks, who have a chance to win it for the second time in four years, even as Chicago’s captain, Jonathan Toews, and Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins are questionable for the game because of injuries sustained Saturday in a 3-1 Blackhawks victory...
Boy howdy. The NHL did not suspend Boston Bruins Johnny Boychuk for his hit to Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews,' erm...Upper back...and the Chicago Tribune's Steve Rosenbloom subsequently blew a gasket:
The NHL had a chance to send a message about the unacceptability of head-hunting hits such as the one Boston’s Johnny Boychuk delivered to Jonathan Toews...
The Globe and Mail's Eric Duhatschek believes that the Stanley Cup Final has been nothing less than "epic," and he believes that it will deliver a conclusion fitting for an abbreviated 2013 season jam-packed with dramatic action:
