Bruins 3rd line push Boston to 2-0 win, lead series 2-1

BOSTON - The Bruins' third line was No. 1 in Boston.

The revamped lineup of Daniel Paille, Chris Kelly and Tyler Seguin scored Boston's first goal and drew the penalties that led to another in a 2-0 win over Chicago on Monday night for a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup finals.

The line also led Boston's pestering forecheck that forced Chicago into repeated giveaways and penalties as the Bruins controlled play from the start.

Paille, who scored the overtime winner in Game 2 to tie the series, scored the first goal Monday off assists by Kelly and Seguin. The Bruins went up 2-0 when Patrice Bergeron scored a power-play goal set up by the grinding work of Kelly and Paille, who drew the penalties that gave Boston an 11-second 5-on-3 advantage.

Great players need great players to play with. That's why we'll have a training camp and we'll find who the best two guys are suited to play with Stamkos.
