Chicago, IL – Daniel Paille scored at 13:48 of overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 2-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
A wraparound from behind the Chicago net along the right boards wasn't handled by the Blackhawks' Brandon Bollig, and Boston's Adam McQuaid was able to push the puck down to Tyler Seguin. From the mid-boards, Seguin fired the puck over to the slot, where Paille ripped it home into the right corner for the win.
Paille also had the assist on Chris Kelly's goal that tied the contest in the second period and Tuukka Rask was strong in a sloppy first period for Boston and finished the game with 33 saves.
"If you look at our game I thought we weren't there at first," said Boston head coach Claude Julien. "We started to get better as the game went on, but Tuukka bailed us out. I told our guys that we have to show up for these games from the start or we're going to get into trouble."
Patrick Sharp scored the only goal of the game for the Blackhawks in the first period, and Corey Crawford made 26 stops in the loss.
Chicago had won Game 1 by a score of 4-3 in triple-overtime after rallying from a two-goal deficit in the third period, but failed to repeat the magic as the team lost for just the second time at home in 12 playoff games.Add a comment
