GIF Recap: Bruins Fall to Blackhawks - 3-2, F

Yet another close-but-just-not-enough effort from the Boston hockey team.

By the power of the interwebs, we give you looping moving pictures to help recap the game...

1st Period

The game started slow, with very few chances. And I mean...

And then Head-of-the-Klas Dahlbeck netted his first career NHL goal.

Marchand almost nets a shorty with a slick move as cool as the... well, you know.

Then after spending a few minutes in the Chicago zone, the Bruins allow a dirty-area goal to Ben Smith.

Bruins go to the locker room down by two after 20.

2nd Period

The Bruins controlled the puck a good amount, held off two 5-on-3 Blackhawks powerplays, AND had a couple decent scoring chances.

One of the 5-on-3s came as a result of this Seidenberg hit on Toews.

Toews came back out for the very next shift, but left the game before the 2nd period ended, and didn't return.

Then Lucic decided to watch Patrick Kane do some puck-handling and score a goal.

Even Kelly got in net to give goaltending a shot.

But thankfully Reilly Smith gave people at TD Garden something to cheer about.

This is a very pretty "goal-scorers" goal.

Boston goes to the locker room for a second time down by two goals. But this time, they are at least on the board.

3rd Period

A little more than halfway through the 3rd Period, Lucic wins a puck battle, and assist's Krug's 5th of the year. After the pass and goal, Andrew Shaw took a cheap shot with a high hit on Milan Lucic that started a brawl. Chris Kelly ended up fighting Shaw to a draw.

Just an outstanding overall effort by Lucic, nice finish by Krug.

But overall, the Bruins' rally in the 3rd was just not enough to overcome a Toews-less Blackhawks team that has now won 8 straight. Boston out-shot the Blackhawks 34-to-21, with Chicago only having 2 shots on net in the 3rd period. Better luck on Saturday, boys.
