Desperate Blackhawks send Game One into overtime
(Reuters) - Dave Bolland and Johnny Oduya scored third period goals as the Chicago Blackhawks rallied to tie the Boston Bruins 3-3 and send Game One of the Stanley Cup Final into overtime on Wednesday.
Leading 2-1 on two Milan Lucic goals, Boston struck first again in the third on a Patrice Bergeron powerplay to restore a two-goal cushion.
But the desperate Blackhawks refused to fold, Bolland cut Boston's advantage to one before Johnny Oduya's blast ricocheted from the skate of Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference past Tuukka Rask to level the game at 3-3.
Rookie Brandon Saad scored Chicago's other goal, his first of the playoffs, early in the second period.
