Going into this series, I always thought that there would be a couple of thrilling overtime games. Little did I know that game one would be a daunting 112 minutes of tough ice time before a winner would prevail. This game was the fifth-longest game in Stanley Cup history, which is mind-boggling to think about. Game one of this series was exactly what most thought it would be, a physical, ugly and grind-it-out style of game. The Bruins have always been known for their stellar physical play, but last night at times it seemed that Hawks were taking it to the Bruins. In the 1st period, the Bruins came out strong, and seemed to be ready to continue their outstanding play from the Eastern Conference Finals. Thirteen minutes and eleven seconds into the first period, Milan Lucic scored a power-play goal (assisted by Nathan Horton, David Krejci) that would give the B’s the 1-0 advantage. Lucic wasn’t done there though, 51 seconds into the second period Lucic would get his second goal off an...
BEST OF MAXIM
DIDN'T SEE YOU THERE
The biggest hit from Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals was an accident. Milan Lucic skated across the blue line, completely unaware that Jaromir Jagr was about to cut and head his direction. The two Bruins had a huge collision which sent both men sprawling. To make matters worse, Chicago's Brandon Saad was unable to avoid the traffic jam and ran into the back of Lucic. The result...
Milan Lucic scored late in the first period and the Boston Bruins took a 1-0 lead over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday.
In the first championship meeting in 34 years between Original Six franchises, the teams spent much of the first period feeling each other out - and hitting each other, too.
Then, the Bruins started to take charge and they...
The Bruins never trailed in their series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, so it came as little surprise they’d star the Cup Final ahead of the Blackhawks.
About 13 minutes in to Game 1, Milan Lucic scored the first goal of the series, giving the B’s a 1-0 lead. The key to the play may have come as David Krejci absorbed a hit while moving the puck to Nathan Horton, who found Lucic...
Milan Lucic arguably had one of the biggest hits of Game 1 against Chicago but, unfortunately for Lucic and the Bruins, that hit was landed on his own teammate, Jaromir Jagr. The accidental collision happened along the Bruins’ defensive blue line and wound up taking out Chicago’s Brandon Saad, who couldn’t avoid the traffic jam, for good measure.

That's goal number 4 for the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs for Bruins forward Milan Lucic assisting on the goal for the Boston Bruins, forwards Nathan Horton and David Krejci. The Boston Bruins out shot the Chicago Blackhawks 11-8 in the first period.
Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic checks in at 6’4″ 220 lbs and Jaromir Jagr checks in at 6’4″ 240 lbs. That is a pair of big men and early in the 2nd overtime of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals they were both caught looking at something other than the ice in front of them and collided in this major collision. Lucky for the Bruins, neither player was injured on the play...
In terms of the best blooper from game one of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals, you need to check out this clip of Bruins stars Milan Lucic and Jaromir Jagr.

The Boston Bruins first line of David Krejci, Nathan Horton and Milan Lucic has been terrorizing opponents all postseason. With six minutes left in the first period, the line was back at it again with this fantastic tic-tac-toe play. It was absolutely textbook and the Chicago Blackhawks were caught running around after Hawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson went for the huge hit...

If you wanted an exciting start to the Stanley Cup Final, you sure got what you wished for last night.
Game One started out last night as many expected it to. Both teams came out playing well, and players had to work hard for every inch of ice they got. The Bruins jumped out to a 2-0 lead powered by a pair of goals from Milan Lucic.
How do you follow up one of the greatest games of all time? Well, we’re about to find out.
After a triple-overtime thriller in which both teams squandered chance after chance and toyed with the emotions of their fans, the Blackhawks emerged victorious after a doubly deflected goal somehow found its way past Tuukka Rask and the Bruins.
This thrilling Game 1 certainly sets the stage...
Boston Bruins forward David Krejci had a sure game-winner poked away. Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane had the puck trickle off his stick in front of the crease. Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara had a blast from the blue line glance off teammate Jaromir Jagr and then off the post.
Kaspars Daugavins, Shawn Thornton, Daniel Paille and Michael Frolik.
There were plenty of players...
Just a few things that caught my eye:
I almost went to bed after the third Boston goal. What a mistake that would have been, eh?! Cue the comeback.
Marian Hossa will do anything to win. He, Milan Lucic and Tuukka Rask were the best players on the ice through two OTs.
Zdeno Chara was working his suffocating magic on Jonathan Toews all night long. Funny...
