The Chicago Blackhawks looked decidedly Penguins-esque tonight at the TD Garden. Dave Bolland got the penalty hat trick, Marian Hossa didn't play due to an injury in warmups, and after a Zdeno Chara injury scare, the Bruins came out firing and never looked back.
After a first period with two Blackhawks power plays and no goals, Dave Bolland helped Daniel Paille out on the first Bruins goal (and the eventual game winner) by being weak on the puck and allowing Diamond Danny to steal it and fire it past Corey Crawford:
Nice. Just 2:13 into the period, the confidence was flowing.
12 minutes later: oh look, a power play goal! Bask in the glory of this Jaromir Jagr pass through the crease directly onto the stick of Patrice Bergeron, allowing St. Patrice to just tap it home.
The Bruins just shut everything down in the third period, and the game ended with some scuffling - Zdeno Chara took on tough guy Bryan Bickell, and Andrew Shaw tackled Brad Marchand. Way to get up with 10 seconds left in the game, Blackhawks.
GAME FOUR IS WEDNESDAY, EVERYONE GO GET SOME SLEEP WOOOO
