Second-Period Defensive Lapses Doom Bruins in Wide-Open Game 4 Loss to Blackhawks (Video)


Raise your hand if you thought the Bruins and Blackhawks would combine for nearly a dozen goals in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. We didn’t think so. 

After two tight, defensive battles, both offensives exploded Wednesday night — or, perhaps more accurately, both defenses struggled. That was especially true in the second period, when several lapses in the Bruins zone led to three Chicago goals. 

NESN’s postgame team of Dale Arnold, Barry Pederson, Andy Brickley and Jack Edwards broke down the breakdowns from TD Garden. Check out what they had to say in the video above.
