As many had predicted this series had potential to go the distance and maybe become a classic series. that recipe may have come to fruition in game one as they had a marathon game that was pretty much 2 games in one.
Stanley Cup Final
Blackhawks Lead Best Of Seven Series 1-0
Puck Drop: 8 PM
HEAD TO HEAD
This series has only had one game so far, but from what we seen we are in for an exciting one. You can tell these two teams are pretty equal in many aspects and are both very well coached. We were treated to one heck of a first game and the rest of the series should continue like it has started. With great hockey. Chances on both ends and great goaltending. The first game seen the Bruins come out a little better than the Hawks and it showed on the scoreboard as the visiting team managed a 3-1 lead. But in the third period it was the home teams turn to convert on scoring chances as they tied it and sent the game into overtime…. and a second overtime… and then a third overtime period. Andrew Shaw was the one who finished off the game as he was the hero for game one.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Tuukka Rask, BOS – As I said in my series prediction he will be a game changer, either positively or negatively. I seriously think he will determine the outcome of his team whether he likes it or not.
Patrick Kane, CHI – He has been great in these playoffs and his team will look for him to keep it going for one more round.
- Marathon? – From what we seen in game one, we might be in for another long game, in what might be a long series.
- Captain – We haven’t seen Jonathan Toews score a lot of goals for his team, he hasn’t been terrible just not scoring goals. He might come out and score a couple in one of these games.
- Sens? – Will all the Sens flavour in this series you have to guess that something will happen with one of these players and that almost happened last night with Kaspars Daugavins!
If we consider game one as a preview, then we are in for a good ride. It is a good time to be a hockey fan! With these two equally matched teams, you has better strap yourself to your couch with a cold beverage or two… because you will be there for awhile!
Enjoy the game!
