Blackhawks take Game One of Stanley Cup in triple-overtime

By John Vogl

The way Boston and Chicago have been playing, it was assumed by many the Stanley Cup would be a tightly played series. Game One only enhanced that outlook.

The opener went to triple-overtime before Chicago's Andrew Shaw finally had a goal bounce off his leg and into the net with 7:52 remaining in the sixth period, giving the Blackhawks a 4-3 victory. Chicago rallied from 2-0 and 3-1 deficits.

The game was the fifth longest in Cup history. The "No Goal" epic between Buffalo and Dallas is No. 2.

Chicago took 132 shots, including 63 that reached Boston goaltender Tuukka Rask. Forty missed the net and another 29 were blocked. The Bruins put 54 shots on Corey Crawford.

For an in-depth look at each team, here is the coverage by the Boston Globe and Chicago Tribune.
