Putting Brad Marchand and Andrew Shaw on the ice at the same time creates a powder keg of agitation — one that finally blew up in the closing seconds of Game 3 on Monday. As Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara and Blackhawks winger Bryan Bickell dropped the gloves in front of the Boston net, Marchand and Shaw did the same. The fights did not exactly follow “hockey code,” as a particularly heated Chara continued to pound Bickell after both had tumbled to the ice and Shaw landed a hard left to Marchand’s dome while the B’s winger lay on his back. That extra blow didn’t bother Marchand — he said he’s done it before, too — but he wasn’t a fan of another dirty trick Shaw allegedly pulled during the scuffle. “It was a bit of a scrum there in front, and stuff happens in hockey … especially in the playoffs with tempers running high,” Marchand told CSNNE.com on Tuesday. “When [Chara] is battling with their guy, everybody is going to come in, and things just happen. “Stuff happens. I’ve done t

From CBS Sports' Adam Gretz:
With his team trying to avoid falling into a 3-1 hole in the Stanley Cup Final, Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville seems prepared to reunite Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on the same line for Game 4 on Wednesday night.
The two have rarely played together at even-strength over the first three games of the series but were back on a...

Boston Bruins forward Daniel Paille has scored the last two goals for the Boston Bruins. Tyler Seguin is starting to heat up in the scoring department as well.

Wow. Just, wow.

According to a report from Scott Powers of ESPNChicago.com , Viktor Stalberg will play in tonight’s Game 3 after being a healthy scratch for the first two contests of what has been a very entertaining...

from Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe,
The Blackhawks are supposed to be a great hockey team. They won the Cup three years ago and set an NHL record when they came out of the gate without losing any of their first 24 games in regulation. They recovered from a 3-1 series deficit against Detroit. They overwhelmed the defending Stanley Cup champs from Los Angeles. They went...
Well that was crazy. The Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks went to overtime yet again, for the third time in four games, but this time around, they went to OT tied 5-5, and a wild and crazy game yielded a wild and crazy finish as Brent Seabrook's shot flittered through three Bruins and Jonathan Toews, who'd been shoved into Tuukka Rask's crease by Zdeno Chara. Hawks...
The Big Leagues We rank the best in show - Jason Voorhees need not apply.
A.B. Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask says the TD Garden ice was ************ on live TV after game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Chicago Blackhawks.
But after saving all 28 shots to post his third shutout of the 2013 NHL playoffs, I’m pretty sure he gets a pass. Especially in Boston where we encourage profanity.
Think you know what’s going to happen in these playoffs? Think again.
The unlikeliest of heroes continue to emerge for the Bruins during their Stanley Cup run, and Game 3 was no different. Rich Peverley was the man of the hour in the first period, but he won’t be the last member of the Black and Gold to come out of nowhere to shine.
