Daniel Paille Plays the Hero for the Bruins in Game 2
None of those meager numbers mean a thing now though, as Paille scored 13:48 into overtime to win Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals for Boston and even the series up at 1 game a piece. Video of the goal is below.
It was another resilient performance for the Bruins, who had to survive a first period onslaught. The Blackhawks out shot Boston 19 to 4 in that opening period, but could only manage one goal, a wrister by Patrick Sharp. From there, goalie Tuukka Rask did his job, not allowing another goal and making 33 saves total. Chris Kelly tied it up for the Bruins in the second period.
The series thus heads to Boston on Monday night for Game 3 at 1-1. Given how close it's been so far, it's only fitting.
