Video: Blackhawks tie it with two quick goals

Jun 12, 2013, 10:44 PM EDT

When Patrice Bergeron‘s slapper made it 3-1 in the third period, things seemed pretty grim for the Chicago Blackhawks. Moments later, hockey fans were reminded that the Blackhawks and Boston Bruins have fought back from dire situations before.

About two minutes after Bergeron’s goal, Dave Bolland finished a nice one-timer chance and then Johnny Oduya scored 12:14 into the third period to make it 3-3.

First, here is Bolland’s tally:

Then feast your eyes on Oduya’s marker:

    If this game is any indication of how the series will go then we will be in for a good one. These teams are very evenly matched. Gotta love OT hockey in the Stanley Cup.

    OT!!!! Hawks have completely outplayed the boys from Boston tonight. Score is not indicative of how badly outplayed Boston has been tonight. Unless the bean town decides to wake up, I see this over in six, maybe less. Go Hawks!

      Pffft. You must have missed the first two periods and at least half of overtime. This has been some of the most even end-to-end hockey I’ve seen in years. The Bruins have controlled for long stretches, and the ‘Hawks have come right back and done the same.

    Looks like this will be a great series with great hockey. But can NBC do something about the play-by-play guy. Did Emrick ever play hockey, or even grow up with hockey? His use of non-hockey terms is grating: pushback instead of rebound (basketball), ricochet instead of deflection, touch up on icing (I thought touch up was for paint), references to the half boards when there is no such thing in hockey (is there?; I’ve never heard the term). He added a new one tonight – a geometric pass, instead of a pass off the boards. During the Olympics, before the gold medal game, he made reference to the pressure of the game and made it sound like the players did not want to be there; an incredulous color man paused, probably wondering if he heard right, and quickly changed the subject. This guy is awful. Like Milbury and Jones though.

      Dude you’re out of your mind… there’s not much better (in my mind) than hearing Doc’s voice raise a bunch of decibels every time there is a scoring chance. So what if his vocabulary isn’t exactly to your liking, the guy’s been announcing hockey for a long time. He knows what he’s watching. No way is he awful.

      I think Doc’s one of the best. He at least puts emotion into his goal reactions AND knows what players he is talking about.. The dudes commentating LA/SJ was the definition of awful.

    Headed to the fifth period. Can the Hawks repeat their last game against the Kings?

    Ugh!!! This is nuts!!! What an awesome OT!!! This series is gonna be crazy!!!!

    Well, at least we can agree on two things?

    Chicago in not Pittsburgh
    Boston is not L.A.

    So we can all stop the silliness.

    Anyway, Boston’s got to score on this remaining 90 seconds left, right?

    Hawks got absolutely lucky with turnovers and trash goals. Bruins will bounce back. LUCKY to even make it to OT

  9. therolandobottom - Jun 13, 2013 at 1:06 AM

    Sprtsfan your an idiot, the score was 2-0. Bruins turnover made it 2-1. Than 3-1 another bruins turnover made it 3-2. And the tying goal Ike the OT winner was some lucky trash. Chickens outplayed nothin, they were lucky to win

      Full-of-sh*t homers on both sides, it seems. Our Bruins played an absolutely stellar game, but so did the ‘Hawks. Wild chances at both ends, spectacular goaltending, end-to-end play throughout. It was as close as it could possibly get. Rare occasion where both teams completely deserved to win.

        Absolutely… That was one of the best hockey games I’ve ever seen. If game 1 was any indication of how this series is going to go we’re all in for a treat.
