I think the biggest we saw in this game that could be important comes to the way Boston managed their bench in a poor way. One of the biggest advantages Boston holds is that of travel. In a shortened season the Bruins game in Chicago was their first outside the Eastern Time Zone since a March 19th trip to Winnipeg.

Andrew Shaw netted the game-winning goal for the Blackhawks in triple overtime in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, so he was understandably very excited during his postgame interview with NBC’s Pierre McGuire immediately following the big goal. That might explain the f-bomb he dropped about 10 seconds into the interview:
“It was a great shot, great tip…f**kin’ unbelievable...
