The Chicago Blackhawks have a shot to win the Stanley Cup on Monday night when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.

The 'Hawks would follow the Los Angeles Kings, who won the Cup in 2014.

In 1892, the Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley of Preston, donated the Cup at a dinner of the Ottawa Amateur Athletic Association. The Montreal Amateur Athletic Association hockey club was the first winner of the Stanley Cup in 1983.

The NHL was founded in 1917, and the first NHL Stanley Cup winner was the Toronto Arenas in 1918.

The Montreal Canadiens have the most Cup wins (24) and appearances (34). The Toronto Maple Leafs are second with 13 Cup wins, followed by the Detroit Red Wings (11), Boston Bruins (six) and both the Chicago Blackhawks and Edmonton Oilers with five each.
