The Bruins and Blackhawks finished the first period of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final in a 0-0 tie. The Bruins were not without their opportunities in front of the net, though. The B’s missed an opportunity when a quick 3-on-1 breakaway ended in an offsides call, and Corey Crawford did his best brick wall impersonation, making 11 saves in the first period. Bruins forward Brad Marchand had an especially good chance on a breakaway, but he couldn’t control the puck in front of the net as it sailed past the goal into the boards. Marchand was so frustrated with his missed shot that he slammed his stick onto the boards, breaking it in half on his way back to the bench. Check out the heated moment in the GIF below.

Brad Marchand Accuses Andrew Shaw of Eye Gouging, Calls Blackhawks Winger a ‘Kitty Cat’

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...

Tuukka Rask Ain’t Care About The FCC

The Boston Bruins decided to put an end to the Stanley Cup Finals’ perfect run of overtime games last night with a 2-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3.

Dave Bolland Tries to Make Brad Marchand Flinch Before Heading to Penalty Box (GIF)

Chicago’s Dave Bolland tried the old “I made you flinch” trick on Brad Marchand during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night, but to no avail. Bolland, who was being sent to the penalty box for tripping during the second period, got right in Marchand’s face before quickly retreating to the box. Marchand didn’t seem too amused by Bolland’s antics, though, and...

Life Is Good In Boston

from Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe, The Blackhawks are supposed to be a great hockey team.

Tuukka Rask Calls The Ice ************ After Shutting Out Blackhawks

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.

Lord Stanley Game Three

Just a few things that caught my eye: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool Joel Quennville four times? Shame on the organization. Zdeno Chara was in the dressing room with a skate issue for at least four shifts and Quennville failed to get Jonathan Toews on the ice for any of them. How does that happen with today's technology? Tuukka...
