Now that's how you start the Stanley Cup Finals.After a stirring 2-goal comeback in the third period, the Chicago Blackhawks outlasted the visiting Boston Bruins 4-3 in three overtimes Wednesday night. It was the fifth longest game in Stanley Cup Finals history.The grueling, gritty victory -- which featured a whopping 52:08 of overtime hockey -- gave Chicago a 1-0 series lead over the Bruins, who couldn't maintain a 3-1 lead in the third period.Credit the Blackhawks' Andrew Shaw for beating Boston goalie Tuukka Rask at the 12:08 in the third OT -- and sending the sold-out Madhouse on Madison into a red-sweater frenzy."We knew it wasn't going to be pretty at that point," Shaw said. "You could tell both teams were physically exhausted. We've preached it: Go to the net, you'll find a way to get a greasy goal. We did a heck of a job of it there in the third overtime."Actually, Shaw has done a "heck of a job" during the entire 2013 NHL playoffs. His game-winner Wednesday was his fifth postseason goal thus far."The bigger the stage, the bigger the challenge, he rises to the occasion," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "He knows where the front of net is...He's a warrior. He's one of those guys that you appreciate he's on your side and he's relentless."If the Bruins lose a close series, they will likely gaze back to the third period with loads of regret. Boston looked in command of the game -- until the Blackhawks scored twice."We were up two goals, and all of a sudden, the game was tied," said Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara.The Bruins now have two days to try and shake off Wednesday's nightmare. But based on history, it won't be easy. With the loss, the Bruins became only the third team in Stanley Cup Finals history to blow a multi-goal lead in Game 1. The Oilers did it in 2006 and the Red Wings did it in 1956.Both teams went on to the lose the Cup.Boston will spend plenty of time over the next 48 hours saying "it's just one game" and "we have to put it behind us." Don't let the idle chatter fool you. This was a debacle for the Bruins, and it will be extremely difficult to shake off the self-doubt and what-might-have-beens heading into the Game 2.The Blackhawks didn't just win a game on Wednesday -- they grabbed a shocking win that was headed for Boston.The Bruins won't easily forget that disappointing turn of events.It's just one game -- but it could mean the series.Follow @hockeyfanland on twitterPosted by HockeyFanLand.Photo Source: Bruce Bennett/Getty Images North America

Did Andrew Shaw curse in interview?

Can you blame a guy who just played a three overtime game and was credited with a game winner if he slips up a bit during his postgame interview? I certainly will not.

Game One
