Deflection Ends Marathon Game In Triple OT by Momma Gouche

It took 115 minutes :08 seconds (almost five hours) of exhausting hockey for a 4-3 win to be garnered by the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night. The opening game of the Stanley Cup finals between the Boston Bruins and the Hawks had lots of twists and turns. In the opening period Chicago played like it was just another practice; until Milan Lucic scored 2 and the Hawks were down 2-0,  Brandon Saad got his first goal of the playoffs to cut the lead to 1 by the end of the second. The Hawks played well in the second, but Patrice Bergeron scored on a power play and the hawks were again down 2. My hopes for my Hawks were dwindling until David Bolland and Johnny Oduya tied the score at 3-3. Now the fear of overtime! The Hawks took penalties for too many men on the ice in both OT periods and it looked like they were disorganized … and disaster was at hand. Through 2 periods of overtime the teams were fairly well match, but fatigue was taking it’s toll. It was either teams victory …  until Andrew Shaw caught a deflection off of Dave Bolland and slipped it in the net.The after midnight show was over …  my Blackhawks are ahead by 1
