For the third time in six years, the Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup following a 2-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Rounding off a 4-2 series win, the Blackhawks confirm their status as a true hockey dynasty with their third title in close succession.

The Blackhawks last won the cup in 2013 and have once again risen to the top of the hockey world following their victory tonight.

Chicago kept the Lightning out all night to wrap up their title despite being 2-1 down after game three of the series.

Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith were the goal scorers for the Blackhawks as they emerged victorious in every sense of the word.

Keith scored the games opener at the United Center 17 minutes into the second period to end a nervy period of the game.

Doing incredibly well to not only get to his own rebound but put it in the back of the goal, Keith wrote his name in the Blackhawks' legacy.

Keith was also crowned as the Stanley Cup Finals MVP for his incredible performances throughout the series.

In the third period, Chicago hit the hammer stroke to their opposition with Kane getting the goal that sealed the cup with just six minutes left in the game.

The series was a lot more competitive than last year's Stanley Cup between the LA Kings and the New York Rangers which finished 4-1.

The Blackhawks will surely be remembered as a sporting dynasty now after claiming their third Stanley Cup in six years.

Arguably up there with the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics, New England Patriots and New York Yankees as some of the best sporting teams throughout history.

The Blackhawks are now set for the jubilation that comes with winning the Stanley Cup before they need to think about defending it next year.
