What a bizarre way to end a Stanley Cup final. If ending in overtime wasn't enough, Chicago forward Patrick Kane delivered the knockout blow to the Philadelphia Flyers' season with a goal no one - not even his own teammates - was certain ever went into the net.

A goal at 4:06 of overtime by Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane Wednesday night might have been the most bizarre Cup-clinching moment in memory.
Trying to stay loose even though they're one win away from a Stanley Cup championship, the Chicago Blackhawks stuck to their routine on the eve of Game 6, going out to eat and playing video games.
"[Tuesday night] we played some Mario Kart like we always do and we had the final rankings of the year and [Niklas] Hjalmarsson won," said forward Troy Brouwer. "We had a load of fun with it last night, joking around and having a good time."
How the Flyers come out of the tunnel Wednesday, how they view the task at hand, will say much about their chances of winning Game 6 and forcing a deciding match back in Chicago.
Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews admitted he has thought about how it would feel should his team win Game 6 and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman places the Stanley Cup into his arms.
