A shot from Zdeno Chara deflected off the goalie, off the back glass, off the top of the net, then off Patrice Bergeron‘s stick and into the back of the net. Just how Claude Julien wrote it up.
Not quite, but the unorthodox goal reduced the Bruins deficit to one in the final minutes of the second period. Less than two minutes after Blackhawks center Marcus Kruger gave Chicago a 4-2 lead, Bergeron found himself in the right place at the right time for his eighth goal of the postseason.
Check out Bergeron’s goal in the video below.

Zdeno Chara was super grumpy post-game. It ended with him and Bickell fighting but it began with him losing an edge pre-game.
Rask would say this is ****** ice... or maybe bad skate blade.
Taylor Hall is not impressed, though.

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara had just about enough of Chicago Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell. The pushing and shoving started slowly, but Chara knocked Bickell down and ended up on top of him. Chara is a massive human being and to see him man handle Bickell like he was a child was still impressive. A huge scrum formed around the two and Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw...
The Boston Bruins have been playing from behind the whole game, but they finally started to get some bounces their way in the second period. While dominating on the power play, a shot from Zdeno Chara at the point went way over the net, hitting high off the glass.

After three games of the Cup Final, however, the voters that opted for Toews over Patrice Bergeron — a handful of them from Chicago, no doubt — might be rethinking that decision.

Matt Cubeta of NHL.com tweeted this AWESOME picture of Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara riding his bike prior to Game 3. I guess Z had a case of deja vu in the third period when he treated Bryan Bickell like this poor bike.
All Bickell needed was the basket and bell.

Two of the biggest players in the NHL collided on Monday night during warm ups. Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara was skating around in warm ups when he lost an edge and took out Milan Lucic from behind. Chara went right off the ice, presumably to get his skate resharpened. Luckily for Boston both players were fine.
