How did the Battle of the Bulge signal the beginning of the end of World War 2 in Europe?

The Battle of the Bulge was not among a series of steps to the ultimate downfall of the Third Reich. The loss of the 6th Army at Stalingrad was the arguable first signal. The Battle of Bulge was a last stand of sort on the Western Front for a German Army starved of supply and most importantly oil. The Battle of the Bulge was a German counter attack. It was their last hope in the West to stop the advance of American and British forces. The breaking of the German stand allowed for the Allied armies to enter the German motherland from the West, ultimately surrounded them on both sides (with the Soviets closing to the east).
