Stanley Cup: Bruins and Blackhawks in the Windy City

After  a two-day  break, the  Stanley Cup  Final will  resume Saturday  as the Chicago  Blackhawks and  Boston Bruins will battle  in a pivotal Game 5 in the Windy City.

Three of the first four tilts in this best-of-seven series have gone into
overtime, including Wednesday’s wild Game 4, which Chicago won by a 6-5 count after Brent Seabrook notched the winner 9:51 into the extra session. It was the first win for the Blackhawks since taking Game 1 in triple overtime and the victory evened this series at two games apiece.

 

On the injury front, Blackhawks winger Marian Hossa is expected to play in
Game 5 despite missing practice on Friday. Hossa sat out Game 3 due to an unspecified upper-body injury, but returned for Wednesday’s contest.

This series marks the first time Original Six franchises have met in the
Stanley Cup Finals since 1979, when Montreal defeated the New York Rangers in five games.

Boston has won five of the six postseason meetings with Chicago.

Game 6 is scheduled for Monday in Boston. If necessary, Game 7 will be played Wednesday at the United Center.
