NHL Game Summary - Boston at Chicago



(Sunday, January 19th)

Final Score: Chicago 3, Boston 2 (SO)

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Patrick Kane scored the winner in the shootout as the Chicago Blackhawks took a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Sunday.

On the final attempt of the shootout, Kane skated down the middle and slowed up before picking his shot and burying a wrister past Tuukka Rask for the win.

Marian Hossa and Brandon Bollig scored for the Blackhawks, who have won three of their last four. Corey Crawford stopped 34 shots in the win.

"I thought the pace of this game was quick and it didn't stop," said Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville. "They're a great team and they can really wear you down. I thought the guys did a good job of standing them up."

Brad Marchand scored both goals for the Bruins, who have lost four of six. Rask made 35 stops in defeat.

"We played really well today," said Marchand. "There's a few opportunities we'd like to have back, for sure, but I thought we had a very good chance to win in a tough place to play against a great team."

The last time these teams met was in the Stanley Cup Finals last spring, which saw Chicago win in six games for its second championship in four seasons.

Chicago got on the board just 4:13 into the contest as Patrick Sharp caught up to the puck along the right circle and dished it to the front where Hossa tapped it in for his 20th of the season.

Boston tied the game with just 18.9 seconds to play in the opening frame, as Marchand scored with a snap shot from the right wing after a backhand feed from Patrice Bergeron, who had brought the puck in down the middle.

The Bruins took a 2-1 lead just 50 seconds into the middle stanza, as Marchand had the puck along the left wing and waited to get Crawford to the ice before slipping the puck between the goaltenders pads for his 14th goal of the season.

Chicago, though, scored near the midway mark of the second, as Bollig threw the puck on net from a sharp angle along the right boards that knicked off Rask and went in.

Crawford was busy in the third period, stopping 14 shots and helping Chicago kill off a pair of power plays, while Boston had to kill off a penalty for the first 1:55 of overtime after Matt Bartowski was called for cross checking late in regulation.

Game Notes

Chicago was 0-for-2 on the power play while Boston went 0-for-3 ... Boston hosts Los Angeles on Monday ... Chicago plays in Detroit on Wednesday ... Hossa has reached 20 goals in 13 of the past 14 seasons, with the one exception being last season's strike-shortened campaign.
