Score: Blackhawks 1, Bruins 1

 

THIRD PERIOD

Hot: Milan Lucic

The burly Bruins forward’s fourth goal of the Stanley Cup Final, at 12:11 of the third period, was almost a backbreaker for the Hawks. Key word: Almost.

Hotter: Bryan Bickell

Bickell’s first goal of the Cup Final—and ninth of the playoffs—saved the Blackhawks from overtime. Tip of the cap to Toews, whose nifty pass across the crease set him up.

Hottest: Dave Bolland

You would never call Bolland an offensive stalwart. But who cares?! He scored the winning goal with less than a minute left, and just 17 seconds after Bicks tied it. Wow.

Final score: Blackhawks 3, Bruins 2
