The Bruins looked dead in the water through the early portions of Game 2 in Chicago. Somehow, they survived until overtime — and then they won it.
Daniel Paille‘s game-winning goal in overtime gave the Bruins the most improbable of victories and evened the series at 1-1. Now, the series shifts back to the TD Garden, where the B’s will look to continue their momentum on home ice.
Tuukka Rask was nothing short of brilliant in Game 2, and he will rightfully receive the bulk of the credit for keeping the Bruins competitive during the early portions of the game. However, Jaromir Jagr and Tyler Seguin also deserve recognition for their strong performances, as the two helped turn the tide for the B’s when it looked like Chicago was going to roll to an easy victory.
All in all, the Bruins showed incredible heart coming back from a lackluster first period, and now, the action is headed to Boston.
