The Chicago Blackhawks stunned the Boston Bruins with a pair of late goals in a series-clinching 3-2 victory for their second National Hockey League (NHL) title in four seasons.

Trailing by a goal with 76 seconds remaining, Chicago scored twice in a dramatic 17-second span to clinch the best-of-seven series 4-2 for the franchise's fifth overall title.

Boston, chasing a second Stanley Cup championship in three seasons, looked to be on their way to a seventh and deciding game when they led 2-1 before the visitors struck twice.

Bryan Bickell tied the game with moments before Dave Bolland sealed the Cup for Chicago in front of a stunned Boston crowd.

Boston had snatched the early lead when Chris Kelly scored the only goal of the opening period but the Blackhawks dominated the rest of the first Stanley Cup final between Original Six teams since 1979.

Jonathan Toews, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy for the most valuable player when Chicago last won the Stanley Cup in 2010, tied the game with a goal in the second period.

Boston regained the lead briefly in the final period when Milan Lucic scored but the celebrations were cut short by Chicago's stunning rally.
