It took 112 minutes and 8 seconds, but the Chicago Blackhawks are one step closer to the Stanley Cup.
The Blackhawks rallied from 2-0 and 3-1 deficits on Wednesday night before beating the Boston Bruins 4-3 in triple overtime to capture Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final at United Center. Chicago got third-period goals by Dave Bolland and Johnny Oduya, and no one scored again until Andrew Shaw's deflection went past Tuukka Rask 12:08 into the third extra period.
It was the fifth-longest in the history of the Stanley Cup Final. Here are some of the key numbers from a game for the ages.
1 -- Career playoff goals for Chicago rookie Brandon Saad, who didn't score through three rounds this spring but fired home a shot 3:08 into the second for his first postseason goal.
2 -- Penalties for having too many men on the ice called against Chicago in overtime. Chicago took only one other penalty in the game.
3 -- Goals this spring by Chicago defenseman Johnny Oduya, who tied the game with 7:46 left in regulation. Oduya managed three goals during the regular season.
