Days of Y'Orr:
Boston has a chance tonight to go back to Chicago 3-1 and put a stranglehold on this series. If Boston comes out the way they did Monday night then call it Johnny. They abused Chicago is every facet of the game in Game 3. Chicago looked defeated from the start. I know they're a dangerous team, but Boston is doing a fantastic job of limit their chances, especially after Game 2's first period barrage.
Shot totals by period:
Game 2, Period 1: 19 - 1 goal
Game 2, Period 2: 4
Game 2, Period 3: 5
Game 2, Overtime: 6
Game 3, Period 1: 10
Game 3, Period 2: 8
Game 3, Period 3: 10
Boston's defense has done a really good job of making sure that Chicago's shots are coming from outside of the faceoffs dots. It's really been a key to their success this series.
Also Patrick Kane is invisible, which makes me smile because **** him. More on that later.
If I need something to start harping on for Boston to change, it's their discipline. So m...

Jimmy Fallon held a bit of a caption contest for Bruins-Blackhawks players on his show this week, handing out superlatives for a handful of skaters. They were pretty spot on. [Barstool] The post Jimmy Fallon’s superlatives for the Stanley Cup Final are tremendous appeared first on The Nosebleeds.
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. Perhaps the finest character on the show is Bill Dauterive. Born [...]The post Bruins coach Claude Julien morphs into King of the Hill’s...
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.
Daniel Paille netted his second game-winning goal in as many games and Tuukka Rask made 25 saves for his third shutout of the playoffs as the Bruins won 2-0 and took a 2-1 series lead.
The Bruins improved to 8-2 at home this postseason while the Blackhawks road struggles continued, falling to 3-5 and losing their fourth Game 3 of the playoffs. The Bruins defense played spectacularly...

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...
The Big Leagues We rank the best in show - Jason Voorhees need not apply.
A.B. Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask says the TD Garden ice was ************ on live TV after game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Chicago Blackhawks.
But after saving all 28 shots to post his third shutout of the 2013 NHL playoffs, I’m pretty sure he gets a pass. Especially in Boston where we encourage profanity.
The Blackhawks' Stanley Cup-clinching win was watched by almost two-thirds more viewers than last year's Game 6.
Chicago's 3-2 victory Monday night over the Bruins had 8.16 million viewers on NBC, up from 4.93 million for the Los Angeles Kings' clincher over the New Jersey Devils last year.
It was down slightly from the 8.28 million for Game 6 between the Blackhawks...
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...
Think you know what’s going to happen in these playoffs? Think again.
The unlikeliest of heroes continue to emerge for the Bruins during their Stanley Cup run, and Game 3 was no different. Rich Peverley was the man of the hour in the first period, but he won’t be the last member of the Black and Gold to come out of nowhere to shine.
