CHICAGO (AP) - Corey Crawford bested Tuukka Rask in the stat that really counts.
The Blackhawks goalie was outstanding in overtime - all three periods of it - keeping his teammates in the game long enough to finally overcome Boston 4-3 in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday night. He smothered a 2-on-1 breakaway in the first OT, frustrated David Krejci time and again and had so many nice glove saves baseball players could learn a thing or two.
Crawford made 51 saves. Rask, who came into the finals with the highest save percentage (.943) of the playoffs and a scoreless streak of more than 126 minutes, finished with 59.
