BOSTON -- Twice already in the Stanley Cup Final, the Boston Bruins have felt the agony of overtime defeat.
The first time, they struggled out of the gate in the opening period of Game 2 after losing to the Chicago Blackhawks in triple overtime in Game 1. Now that the Bruins are headed to Game 5 on Saturday at United Center (8 p.m. EST; NBC, CBC, RDS) with the best-of-7 series tied 2-2 because of an overtime loss in Game 4 on Wednesday, they are hopeful they can bounce back a little quicker.
The Bruins wound up pulling out that Game 2 victory (also in overtime), but they'd rather bounce back in a less difficult manner as they try to grab the series lead.
Boston center Chris Kelly said the biggest lesson from Game 3 for his team was to make sure it is ready to play at the outset of the next game.
