Stanley Cup Finals Game 1: Third Period
After three we are going to overtime with each team having three goals.
For Chicago: After falling behind Chicago got two third period goals from Bolland and Odyua to tie the game. Bolland got a great pass from Andrew Shaw to set up his first of the playoffs, while Oduya was assisted by Frolik and Kruger.
Frolik had a tripping penalty on Chara which lead to Boston scoring a power play and them taking a 3-1 lead.
Crawford stopped 7 of the 8 shots and 22 of 25 for the game which is a 88% save percentage.
For Boston: The Bruins got a power play goal by Bergeron at 6:09 and from there the Bruins didn't do much. They seemed less likely to get in front of a shot after blocking so many in the first two periods.
Numbers: All the numbers are even with each team only have a slight edge either way except the number of shots blocked. Boston still holds an impressive lead 26 to 13 but the Hawks closed the gap in the third. While Boston holds that edge, Chicago holds a huge leadin shots and would be even bigger if not for all the blocked shots.
Should be an interesting overtime. Chicago seems to have been dominating big portions of the game with Boston picking their spots.
Next goal wins.
