Duncan Keith and Patrick Kane gave Chicago all the offense they needed as the Blackhawks shut out the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 to win their third Stanley cup in six years, and clinch the chalice at home for the first time in 77 years.

Keith banged in his own rebound at 17:13 of the second period, giving goalie Corey Crawford all he would need for the win, and spoiling a fabulous effort by Tampa goalie Ben Bishop, who turned aside 30 Chicago shots.

Kane salted the win with just over 5 minutes left, taking a no-look pass from Brandon Saad to put Chicago up by a pair, and marking the first time in the razor-tight series that either team has held a two-goal lead.

Chicago won the Cup in 2010 and in 2013, but had not clinched the trophy at home since 1938. Tampa Bay's appearance in the final was its first since it won the Cup in 2004.
