Tukkaa Rask continues to be impermeable in the net, and his performance is generating chances for the Bruins on the offensive side. Patrice Bergeron converts on one of those opportunities, and for a few minutes it seems like it’s the finishing blow–key word: few minutes. Dave Bolland scores for Chicago less than two minutes after Bergeron’s goal, awakening the United Center once again, and prolonging the Blackhawks’ onslaught on Rask.
Boston gets a great chance on a counter-attack, but Crawford prevents a goal, and sends the United Center crowd to its feet.
7:46- It’s all knotted at 3. Chicago defenseman Johnny Oduya sends the puck towards the Boston net, which somehow trickles into the back of the net in a slow-motion-like fashion (actually hitting off the skate of Bruins player Andrew Ference before going into the goal). It’s fair to say we’ve got ourselves a game now.
As few minutes remain, both the Bruins and Blackhawks have had plenty of scoring chances. The tension/pressure continues to rise, and as this game goes in to overtime, the Blackhawks seem to have the advantage.
