Chicago Defeats Boston In A 3 OT Thriller (Video)

Game One of the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Final at United Center on June 12, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois.

The Chicago Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins in a 3 overtime thriller 4-3 in game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

The winning goal came at the 12:08 mark of the 3rd OT, and was scored by Hawks forward Andrew Shaw.  It was the 5th longest Finals game in NHL history.  The Blackhawks deserve a lot of credit, they were down 2-0 in the second period, and 3-1 in the 3rd before the comeback began.

Once the Bruins took a 2-0 lead it looked as though a Blackhawks comeback was a long shot at best.  After all, this is the same Bruins team who’s stellar defense held the mighty Pittsburgh Penguins to just 2 goals during their Eastern Conference Finals series.

The reason the Blackhawks continue to win these close games is because of their resilient style of play, and uncanny ability to overcome any deficit.  It seems that when their backs are against the wall or if they are involved in an overtime game that they play their best hockey.  Chicago is 3-1 in overtime games this post season.  Here is Andrew Shaw’s game winning goal in triple OT in case you missed it.
