Stanley Cup Finals – Bruins at Blackhawks Game 5
2013-06-21

boston vs chicago nhlGame 4 was a thriller with 11 goals total, but the fact is that stole momentum from the Bruins as the Hawks tied the series and regained home field advantage.

“One of things we have talked about: Get pucks to the net,” said Brent Seabrook.  “I just tried getting it on the net, we had a great screen in front. … It just found a way.”

“Both teams are so great defensively. Both have great goalies,” Seabrook said. “I don’t know; it was one of those games. They got some goals on the power play; we got some bounces. It was nice to get some past Tuukka.”

Bruins coach Claude Julien doesn’t care his team is hitting more than their rivals because at the end,  it comes down to a game 5.

“Not really, not really,” Julien said. “I mean, we tied it up. I thought our guys battled hard enough to get us back in the game and create an overtime. I don’t think we played our best game tonight. A lot of different reasons. I think our decision making wasn’t very good at times. Didn’t think we were moving the puck as well as we had been in the past.

Bruins +130, and Blackhawks -150, listed in the moneyline for game 5.
