Stanley Cup Finals
Daniel Paille scored in overtime and the Boston Bruins beat the Chicago Blackhawks 2-1 Saturday to tie the Stanley Cup finals at one game apiece.
After two full overtime periods, the Blackhawks and Bruins were understandably exhausted.
The Boston Bruins find themselves in a 0-1 hole after Wednesday night’s triple-overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Final, but they aren’t hanging their heads in defeat.
Andrew Shaw skated off to the side and pumped his arms furiously. One shot from the right point plus two deflections was just enough to beat Tuukka Rask in the fifth-longest Stanley Cup finals game in history.
Kaspars Daugavins missed a golden opportunity for the Bruins in Game 1 against the Blackhawks, but will be ready if that chance comes again.
Think you’re the Blackhawks’ most loyal fan? You’ve probably got nothing on a guy from Skokie who’s been to more than 2,100 consecutive home games.
Niklas Hjalrmarsson didn’t expect to see the Bruins make it past the Penguins.
