Hawks can’t sustain stunning dominance of Bruins in 1st period, Boston prevails 2-1 in OT to tie series 1-1

By Brad Gardner

After playing 112 minutes of hockey in Game 1, the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks returned to overtime in Game 2. The Bruins took the decision on a Daniel Paille goal at the 13:48 mark of the first overtime session, knotting the Stanley Cup Finals at one game apiece.

Both goaltenders continued their strong play in the series. Tuukka Rask earned the win with 33 saves on 34 shots and was especially important in the first period, when the Blackhawks outplayed the Bruins throughout the opening period and finished with a 19-4 advantage in shots. Read more »

Lindbloom’s View: Taking Care of Business

Back in the early 70’s, I used to work on my tan in the backyard. I’ve always found it very hard to just lay there and bake – I remember a friend once saying he could lay out for about five minutes and then it’s “OK, what’s next!” To while away the time while working on transforming myself into a bronze Adonis, I’d often read. A favorite pastime was setting up a chessboard and studying chess openings from the over 1,000 page book of The Theory of Chess Openings.

As I headed out to the back yard one day after greasing up with the Coppertone, I saw a book on hockey that my sisters had just finished reading. Bored (actually confused) with trying to figure out what a Grandmaster was saying about the Caro-Khan Opening, I grabbed the book and headed for the lounge chair. Read more »

PuckChatter~Radio, e.129, Your Debutante Just Knows What You Need, But I Know What You Want

By Chris Block

Sorry.  I’ve been listening to a lot of Blonde on Blonde of late.

On Tuesday’s night’s show, we previewed the Chicago Blackhawks – Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Finals series, which, of course, begins Wednesday night at the United Center at 7pm central.

We detail our predictions as well as take a look at the key players for each side.

Outside of that, other topics included Dustin Byfuglien, apparently being too fat to trade; Viktor Stalberg digging himself further into Joel Quenneville’s doghouse and perhaps why.  Also, men being gross, a Boston fan slams Chicago, homeless people and their pets and much, much more.

Bruins top Hawks 3-2 in the shootout

By Brad Gardner

The Blackhawks entered Saturday’s tilt with Boston all too aware of what the Bruins’ struggling offense has experienced in the early stages of their Stanley Cup defense. Despite Boston’s slow start to the season, the marquee match-up between the league’s last two champions did not disappoint. Both teams carried play for stretches as they battled through 65 minutes, but it was Boston that eventually came away with two points in the shootout.

The squads traded chances in the early-going. Milan Lucic had several scoring opportunities on his own in the first period, the first one redirected high by the stick of Jonathan Toews and later a couple heavy shots on the rush that Corey Crawford was able to control. Patrick Kane’s line continued to create offense despite a new face in Viktor Stalberg on the right wing for an injured Marian Hossa. Their best chance came after Stalberg shielded the puck and passed to Kane, who drove unimpeded to the net but was robbed by the glove of Tim Thomas. Kane threw another backhand attempt at Thomas later in the period after using the spin-o-rama to get himself some space. Read more »
