Chicago proved too much in the final minutes. Chara’s penalty sure didn’t help.

Today’s game began with a fitting tribute to the USA’s Women’s Hockey Team for winning the gold in Pyeongchang. Gionta was also represented by taking the ceremonial puck drop against Patrick Kane the US Olympian rep for Chicago. Weird to think that he was the only one at the dot that didn’t earn an Olympic medal this year.

First Period

Whomever predicted chippy, this one didn’t look too bad at the start.

The game’s first goal came from Chicago’s Artem Anisimov after a Tim Schaller penalty, deflecting a Jonathan Toews shot.

Several penalties occurred; this goal came on one of them. It started to even out towards the end of the first with calls against Chicago, but nobody else capitalized on the power play.

Second Period

A much more controlled period by the Bruins, but still giving up good chances to Chicago. Pushed ahead in the shot count and nearly doubled Chicago’s shot attempts by the end of the frame.

Nothing else happened. On your way.

Third Period

Khudobin continued stellar goaltending. Torey Krug took a stick to the cajones.

Zdeno Chara took a pass in the high slot and rifled home a wrister to tie the game!

Unfortunately, Zee would also take a late high-sticking penalty, drawing blood on Brandon Saad and allowing the Hawks another power-play opportunity. Patrick Kane doesn’t miss when given time and space to shoot.

Chicago tallied another with a minute to play to ice the game.

Bruins go 1-1 on the weekend and head into a week full of road games.

See you Tuesday! @ Carolina, 7PM.
