The first period of that game, a monstrosity in which the Bruins got outshot 15-3 and out-chanced similarly? Let's pretend it didn't happen. Blackhawks up 1-0, meh.
THE SECOND PERIOD, THOUGH.
It started off with a crabby Dave Bolland. Brad Marchand dissed you bad, G. Or something. Needless to say, Bolland was off to the penalty box for a trip after that. Bye, Bolly.
The next fifteen minutes were pretty much just a bunch of nail-biting garbage until the third line, that line of sadness and terrible fancy stats for the entire season pretty much, FINALLY capitalized on something. Oh hello, Chris Kelly, formerly of the Face Cage.
Still no dice for Tyler Seguin, but what can you do.
The third period was one in which the Bruins actually played quite well and got a decent number of scoring chances against Corey Crawford; posts were dinged, Boychuk shots seemed to maim Crawford, no goals were scored. Lovely.
Ah, and then overtime, that shitheel of a period; the greatest catharsis if you come out on top, the worst sour feeling if you don't. Luckily, the odds were ever in Daniel "Seventh Player" "Yippee" Paille's favor tonight.
As soon as someone makes sadchicagofans dot gif, it will be inserted here.
HEY, THE BRUINS ARE GOING HOME TIED AT ONE! NOT BAD DOT JPG
Quote of the night:
When asked: Tuukka, a lot of blocked shots by your players after the first period. Do you feel sometimes that's a detriment?
TUUKKA RASK: What's a 'detriment'?
