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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
