In a game that could have been a formality, Boston won 2-1 in overtime to tie the series 1-1, with Game 3 Monday in Boston.
“If somebody would watch the first period, I would’ve said, ‘Oh, give them the Cup right now,’” said Boston’s Jaromir Jagr. On two overtime games to start the series, Jagr said, “Old people don’t watch it, because you might die just watching.”
It was a near-death experience, all right. The Bruins were out-shot 19-4 in the first period, and one of their shots commuted in from the neutral zone. The Blackhawks attempted 30 shots to Boston’s five. Patrick Sharp scored as a landslide of bodies filled the Bruins crease in a mad scramble midway through the first, and it felt inevitable. Yes, of course they scored. Boston looked helpless. How could they not?
“Maybe thought the game was at a different time, I don’t know,” said Bruins winger Tyler Seguin.
“It looked like they had more guys out there than we di

Boston Bruins forward Jaromir Jagr was asked who his favorite players growing up was, and he gave a pretty funny response.
Jaromir Jagr has been around the NHL long enough to be the childhood hero of some of his current teammates on the Boston Bruins.
One of those teammates is fellow Czech David Krejci, who said he grew up idolizing the now 41-year-old Jagr during the CBC’s pregame show before Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night. Apparently he isn’t the only one, though.
Even Jagr was...
Boston Bruins forward Jaromir Jagr revealed that his favorite hockey player growing up was himself during CBC's Hockey Night in Canada pregame coverage before Saturday night's Game 2 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals. So much for being humble.

Overtime hockey is a stressful affair, where every mistake and opportunity is magnified. Jaromir Jagr is certainly feeling that stress in Game 2, after he hit the crossbar just over a minute into overtime against the Chicago Blackhawks.
After the near miss, Jagr — who hasn’t scored yet in the playoffs — let out his frustration with an angry yell to the sky.
Check it out in the GIF below.
During CBC's player intros leading up to Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, players were asked to name their favorite skater from when they were growing up. David Krejci said that his favorite player growing up was current teammate Jaromir Jagr. Following Krejci was Jagr himself. Who did he say was his favorite player?
Jaromir Jagr, of course. Yet another great moment from one...
The days of flashy goals and all the glory are behind 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr — and he knows it. The veteran player hasn’t scored once in the playoffs but has assisted on seven goals in 18 games.
Despite not being the center of attention, Jagr has showcased his strong work ethic, putting in late-night skating sessions to work on his conditioning. Those extra hours seem to be...
Jaromir Jagr has done everything except score for the Bruins this postseason, and that’s OK. While the 41-year-old forward is still searching for his first goal of the playoffs, the Bruins have kept on giving him chances — because they keep winning.
Now, in the final round of the postseason, Jagr is still leading the way even without breaking through. In Game 3, he helped the...
NBC Sports NHL analyst Mike Milbury is known for his negative commentary, and he went after Jaromir Jagr during the first intermission of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Saturday while the Boston Bruins were down 1-0 to the Chicago Blackhawks. Jagr, who was acquired by the Bruins during the regular season, has [...]
This playoff season's made me question my belief in the "hockey gods" as arbiters of truth, justice and the "right team won" way, but Yahoo Sports' Nicholas J. Cotsonika knows that at least one member of the Boston Bruins had a religious experience during the team's 2-1 overtime win over Chicago on Saturday night:
The puck pinged off the crossbar...
Just a few things that caught my eye:
How many Hawks can a Bruin hit if a Bruin could hit Hawks? Answer? 50. Wow. Hit the ice tubs, boys.
Jaromir Jagr and his anti-beard -- so close, yet so far, far away. Maybe the posts have fattened up over the duration of his career.
What's your over-under on overtimes this series? Geez. Enough already.
Now we've got ourselves a Stanley Cup Final series.
Three nights after a devastating triple-overtime loss in Game 1, the Boston Bruins grabbed a thrilling overtime win of their own, a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 2. (Seriously, can't these guys finish a game in regulation?)
Saturday's game was again a battle of outstanding goalies, with Corey Crawford...
The box score will read, Zdeno Chara pass to Jaromir Jagr who fed Patrice Bergeron with a beautiful cross ice pass. Bergy waited until he saw an opening and then shot and then shot the puck past Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford.
#Bruins lead faceoff battle 29-13. Bergeron/Kelly a combined 24-5. Handzus/Kruger/Bolland a combined 1-20.
