Locked in tight Cup final against Bruins, Blackhawks knew it wouldn't be easy

BOSTON - Is it really only Game 3?

After 10 periods in the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals, the Bruins and Blackhawks are in Boston on Sunday to prepare for Game 3.

The best-of-seven series is tied at a game apiece.

The Bruins evened it up Saturday night on Daniel Paille's goal at 13:48 of the first overtime. That's after the teams played 52:08 over three OTs on Wednesday in the series opener.

Both teams are hoping to rest before getting back on the ice Monday night. Bruins coach Claude Julien says the hometown fans will help, but the team still has to play the game.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
