Blackhawks Look To Ride Momentum Of Triple-Overtime Win In To Game Two Saturday

Posted by Don Melrose on 6/13/2013 6:44:01 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks battled back from down 2-0 and then 3-1 to win game one of their Stanley Cup Finals’ series against the Boston Bruins in triple-overtime. Now they will try to parlay the momentum of that crucial online betting win in to another in game two Saturday night. The Blackhawks can take the two-games-to-none series lead over Boston with a win on home ice Saturday, with the series shifting to the northeast for games three and four. No team has spoiled a multi-goal lead in game one of the Stanley Cup Finals and come back to win it all, so history appears to be on Chicago’s side.

That is the predicament that the Bruins face heading in to game two, when they will take a second stab at stealing a road split and home-ice advantage in the series. Boston appeared to have the Blackhawks on the ropes with a 3-1 lead in the third period only to come up short, and must be able to mentally move past that defeat and bounce back.

The fact that Tuukka Rask made 59 saves in game one and still lost will be somewhat alarming to Bruins’ fans, as a team that has been dominant at closing opponents out when they have the lead failed to do exactly that on the biggest stage. Boston was challenged both physically and skill-wise by Chicago, and their inability to close out game one could come back to haunt them. Milan Lucic had two goals and an assist in game one, but the Bruins will need their second and third liens to step up and help generate more quality offensive chances going forward.

The Blackhawks were able to keep Boston hemmed in to its own zone in that crucial third period, as Dave Bolland cut the deficit to one eight minutes in, and then Johnny Oduya tied it just over four minutes later. Chicago’s attack was relentless in game one, and they can’t afford to let off the gas one bit after steal game one. Andrew Shaw was the hero in game one after scoring the overtime winner, and was one of two Blackhawks’ players to register two points in the online sports betting victory. Corey Crawford may have been the MVP for Chicago in game one though, as he made 51 saves.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The fact that Crawford was able to once again hold his own and rise to the occasion isn’t surprising, and should give the Blackhawks a tremendous confidence boost going forward in this series. The Bruins laid it all on the line in game one but couldn’t close the deal, and that puts them in a tough position now trying to bounce back and even the series on the road in game two.
