Chicago Blackhawks, Boston Bruins quite the penalty killers heading into Stanley Cup finals

CHICAGO - When it comes to penalties in the Stanley Cup finals, the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins might just want to leave everyone on the ice and keep going.

The last two teams in the NHL playoffs have been lousy on the power play — just seven goals apiece — and terrific on penalty killing during the post-season. Heading into Game 1 on Wednesday night, goals on special teams could be so scarce that a couple for either side could tip the series in one direction.

The Blackhawks have allowed just three goals in 58 power-play opportunities during the playoffs, while the Bruins have yielded seven in 52 chances.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
