Four games are done, and we're all even as the Blackhawks and Bruins battle in their seemingly even series. Three games have gone to overtime, and the Blackhawks have won two of them including tonight's 6-5 explosion in goals. While there was chatter about the goalies being Conn Smythe favorites, there may be a case against both of them as pucks found their way behind them tonight in rather inexplicable ways. Sure, deflections make it hard, but there were some eyebrow-raising, "shoulda had it" goals tonight.
If you were out and about, here are all eleven goals scored tonight. Some things to key on and watch for? Corey Crawford's glove hand, specifically up high, and Zdeno Chara being on the ice for five of Chicago's six goals. Yikes.
So we head back to Chicago for Game Five with the series tied 2-2 after tonight's outburst of goals. Boston will need to win at least one game on the road if it hopes to capture the Stanley Cup as they'll visit the Madhouse on Madison at least once on the next three games. As thought, this series is turning out to be everything a hockey fan could hope for!
The only problem? It has to end!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
