In case you were wondering which of Chicago's players was the frontrunner to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP this spring, Hawks star defenseman Duncan Keith gave you a reminder when he scored the first goal of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final Monday.

The game was scoreless until late in the second period at United Center, when Keith took a pass from teammate Patrick Kane just inside Tampa Bay's blueline, fired the puck on Bolts goalie Ben Bishop, then scored on his own rebound with 2:47 remaining in the frame:

The goal was Keith's third of the post-season as well as his career-best 21st point in 22 playoff games. And we haven't even spoken about his monstrous amount of ice time. Should Chicago hang on to win their third Cup in the past six seasons, there should be no doubt as to who wins the Conn Smythe.
