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 assist
