Video: Boston quickly erases Chicago’s late lead

Jun 19, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

Once this game ends – and it will take more than 60 minutes, as it just entered overtime – there could be a wide array of storylines. Still, if the Chicago Blackhawks lose, they might have some serious concerns about their ability to hold onto a lead.

With less than five minutes left in the second period, Marcus Kruger gave the Blackhawks a 4-2 lead. That disintegrated quickly, however, as Patrice Bergeron scored twice to tie it up, with the 4-4 marker coming just two minutes into the third.

Patrick Sharp made a lot happen in that middle frame, yet he went without a goal. That changed in the third period, as he finally was rewarded … and on the team’s putrid power play, to boot:

That 5-4 lead was short-lived, as Johnny Boychuk sent this absolute laser beam beyond Corey Crawford‘s grasp just a shade under a minute later:

This all makes Chicago’s eight-minute 1-0 lead in the first period seem downright lengthy.

The good news for both sides: no worries about holding a lead for the rest of this game, as the next goal is the game-winner. Tune in to NBC to see the rest.

    NBC learn how to call a balanced game. Shame on you! You are not supposed to be so biased in your calling of this game. Sicking how you fawn all over the Bruins!

      Are you kidding me with this? All playoffs we’ve heard about how bad of a home Edzo was. I had to turn off the int reports, but as a Hawks fan, I heard nothing like that.

    Best of 3 now… Hawks have home ice back! Looks like the batteries charging the force field around Rask’s net are out of juice.

    Gotta give the Hawks a ton of credit for beating the Bruins and the refs last night. How can they call that hooking on Kane when they made no hooking call on Toews breakaway? It’s getting so bad, even I’m embarrassed.
