The Blackhawks are now three wins from their second championship in four years after taking a 4-3 triple-overtime thriller from the Bruins in Game 1. It didn't matter that their biggest stars were largely quiet. They got enough contributions from their secondary players to escape with a win.
Centre Michal Handzus says it's "been the depth that drives this team."
[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
