CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks peppered Tuukka Rask with rapid-fire shots. Tried to sneak up on him from behind. Played hot potato with the puck in front of the net in hopes of catching him off-guard and slipping one by.
None of it worked.
The goalie made 33 saves Saturday night - 18 in the first period alone - and his refusal to yield in the net helped the Boston Bruins even the Stanley Cup finals at one game apiece with a 2-1 overtime victory over the Blackhawks. He made six saves in overtime, including stopping Game 1 winner Andrew Shaw cold.
Game 3 is Monday night in Boston.
