After the Blackhawks' incredible scoring flourish in the final minutes of Game 6 -- but before Jonathan Toews hoisted the Stanley Cup -- Patrick Kane received the first bit of hardware, being named the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Kane's postseason included a total of 19 points -- nine goals and 10 assists -- highlighted by a hat trick in the series-clinching win in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Kings. Kane scored three goals in the Stanley Cup Final, including two in a Blackhawks win in Game 5.

When talking after the game, Kane pointed out that the trophy could have gone to many different Blackhawks, mentioning goalie Corey Crawford specifically.

"There were a lot of guys that deserved it," Kane told Pierre McGuire on NBC following the game. "I think Crow got snubbed to be honest with you."
