NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE PLAYOFFS
Final Boston 2 Chicago 0
BOSTON (AP) _ Daniel Paille entered the Stanley Cup Finals with just
two goals in 16 postseasons games. He’s managed to double that total by netting
the game-winner in each of the last two contests to help the Boston Bruins take
a two-games-to-one lead over the Chicago Blackhawks.
Paille scored in the second period and Tuukka Rask turned back 28
shots as the Bruins blanked the Hawks 2-0. The game was scoreless until Paille
tallied 2:13 into the middle period, two nights after providing the overtime
goal in Boston’s 2-1 victory at Chicago.
Patrice Bergeron doubled the Bruins’ lead with 5:55 left in the
Rask posted his third shutout of the playoffs and lowered his goals-against
average in the finals to 1.22. Bryan Bickell nearly ended the shutout bid,
beating Rask but hitting the right post with 42 seconds left.
The Blackhawks played without forward Marian Hossa, who was
scratched after being hit by a puck during warm-ups.
