CHICAGO (AP) — Five things learned in the Boston Bruins’ 2-1 overtime win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals on Saturday night:
ALL TIED UP: Many believed Boston and Chicago were the two best teams in the NHL this season, both possessing a lethal blend of potent offense and stingy defense. (Pipe down, Pittsburgh fans. The goal-a-palooza that was Sid the Kid and Co. was a sight to behold, but you have to at least fake some defense.) So it is fitting that the Bruins and Blackhawks head to Boston tied at one game each. The first two games haven’t always been pretty — ahem, Brandon Bolllig — but they have been fast, entertaining and, most important, evenly matched. Fans are definitely getting their money’s worth, and few can argue that the Kings or Penguins would make for a better matchup.
