But depth pays off.

The Blackhawks are now three wins from their second championship in four years after taking a 4-3 triple-overtime thriller from the Bruins in Game 1. It didn't matter that their biggest stars were largely quiet. They got enough contributions from their secondary players to escape with a win.
