07:26 AM ET 06.25 | Players often say things like, "Everyone's banged up this time of year," but it can be jarring to find out the degree to which that is true. But there are so many players this time of year who probably shouldn't be getting out of bed, and yet they're out on the ice giving everything they have left in the tank. Sometimes it's obvious, like when the cameras show Andrew Shaw bleeding all over the ice, constantly wiping his down his stitches, and icing his eye on the bench between shifts. ... "I'm pretty much used up right now," Shaw laughed [after winning the Cup]. "I don't know how much of this I can do. But it was worth all the stitches and everything else. It was worth all of it. This is the greatest feeling in the world and I never want it to go away."

Congrats to the Hawks on denying them game 7. Way to stun and finish it up in their building.

Andrew Shaw is a DUDE!!!

June 25, 2013  08:16 AM ET

He looked like he was out cold

What a crazy finish. For a strike shortened season, it sure was a good one. Congrats to the Hawks!!

Shaw's face looked like how Jagr felt the last two games.

he's a lot tougher than I had ever thought.. Congrats to the Hawks.

To Boston, now you know what the Leafs must have felt like

Awesome game and congratulations to the Hawks.

Captain Whinious overheard saying the Cup was shinier last time.

June 25, 2013  09:20 AM ET

No other team Championship is earned at such a high price year in and year out. What a great tournament

June 25, 2013  09:27 AM ET

Great game, great series, and a fine ending to a shortened season.
And as always, nothing better than seeing Dwarfus horribilus get booed so heartily...great job by the Bruin fans

Absolutely!

As good a two months as we could have asked for.

Yes. Yes. And, yes. Also, he was heard whining he didn't get to hold the Conn Smythe Trophy.

They were on top of their game...

Yes. And, yes. Wish it didn't end so soon.

T-h-a-t w-a-s p-r-i-c-e-l-e-s-s. Almost as good as watching Chara trying to untangle his feet after the game.

Unlike most folks around these parts I'd gladly want a captain doing everything possible in the postseason to win it all. 5 points in the final three games and a plus 5 rating trumps a minus 6 rating by the other teams captain in the final series in my books...

June 25, 2013  09:51 AM ET

Congrats to the Hawks. Didn't think they could do it after their fast start to the season. If this team stays together, there could be a couple more Cups coming Chicago's way.

Can't believe that Boston still hasn't figures out air conditioning and refrigeration...can't blame it on the old Gardens either.

Cost them a 2-zip lead on Marchand's pass to Krejci...

And I for one, am happy to admit I was wrong. I didn't think Crawford could do it...he did....
