With a 2-1 series lead, the Boston Bruins are looking to put the Chicago Blackhawks in a strangle-hold tonight before they return to Chicago for Game Five.
The Bruins took Game Three 2-0, and the Blackhawks began to show frustration at the end of the game. Bryan Bickell got into it with Zdeno Chara, and Andrew Shaw dropped the gloves with Brad Marchand at the same time.
“I think emotions are part of the Stanley Cup Final”, said Bruins head coach Claude Julien. “I think when you’re at this stage, there’s a lot of emotions. I think, if anything, the emotions have been checked pretty good so far in this series.
There’s times in the game when those kind of things happen. You saw it in the scrum. You saw it at different times. You have to try to keep your team in check as best you can. As far as I’m concerned, that’s what I’m trying to do with my team. Maybe you get a better look at their bench, what’s happening there, but I don’t.”

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...

Sure, “King of the Hill” may not have been Mike Judge’s finest work, but it was a sweet show that had a surprisingly long run on FOX and is a viable option for late-night viewing entertainment if you cannot find something else to watch.

Ok so either everyone on the ice is mic’d up or the NHL has the best luck ever. This is the third time that the series has gone to overtime, and this is the third time that the mic’d up player was involved in the game-winning goal. Andrew Shaw was mic’d up when he scored the game-winner in Game 1, Tyler Seguin was mic’d up when he assited on the game-winner in Game 2...
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...
Three Chicago Blackhawks fans wanted to show off their favorite team's Stanley Cup Swagger. While, yes, their city is amazing, the jury is still out on the music video.

Chicago Blackhawks forward #10 Patrick Sharp scores his teams first playoff goal of the series late in the 3rd.
Buckle yourselves in Bruins fans, we’ve got ourselves a series on our hands. I was really hoping the B’s would pull this one out tonight. A 3-1 series lead would have been huge for Boston, but unfortunately it was not to be. The Chicago Blackhawks came out with a furious...
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...
Wow. Just, wow.
The Bruins and Blackhawks lit the lamp 11 times Wednesday night, with the final tally giving Chicago a 6-5 win in an instant classic of a hockey game. The victory creates a best-of-three series for the Stanley Cup, as the two teams will enter Game 5 on Saturday tied at two games apiece.
The teams traded goals in the first period (from Michal Handzus and Rich Peverley...

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...
