The Chicago Blackhawks got the best of the Bruins in this wild game four. The Blackhawks scored their first goal less than ten minutes into the first period by Michal Handzus. Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Marcus Kruger all scored a goal for Chicago during the second period. Patrick Sharp scored for Chicago during the third period and on their way to the third overtime game of the series. Brent Seabrook scored the game-winning goal a little less than ten minutes into overtime.

 

The Bruins were right alongside the Blackhawks until the very end. Rich Peverley scored the first goal for the Bruins during the first period. Milan Lucic and Patrice Bergeron both scored for Boston during the second period. Patrice Bergeron tied the game for the Bruins at the start of the third period, but Patrick Sharp scored again for Chicago. Johnny Boychuk would catapult the Bruins into overtime with his third period goal, but it wasn’t enough to win.

 

The best of seven games series between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Boston Bruins will continue on Saturday in Chicago with game five.
