Two games in to the Stanley Cup Finals and we have two thrilling overtime games. Appropriately, the series between these two teams is evenly matched after the Boston Bruins were able to edge the Chicago Blackhawks, 2-1, in the overtime period. The win for Boston snapped a streak of 9 consecutive overtime playoff wins by the home team.
Daniel Paille was the hero for Boston in Game 2, with Chris Kelly being the man who netted the first goal for the Bruins. Chicago’s lone goal was scored by Patrick Sharp in the first period.
With the series tied, action will shift to Boston for Game 3 on Monday night.
The Bruins and the Blackhawks will drop the puck at 8:00 p.m. ET, with both squads looking to take the series lead.
If Game 3 can be anything like the first two games of the series, hockey fans will be in for a treat. The only concern for both sides has to be exhaustion with the extended games, so it will be interesting to see who’s legs hold up the most.
