Bruins top 10 games of 2013: Playoffs No. 3

Last week, Bruins Daily took a look at some of the best Bruins games of the 2013 regular season. This week, we will focus on the top five games of the 2013 playoffs.

Today we take a look at the Bruins’ third best playoff game of 2013.

Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks Game 2 Stanley Cup Final

After a tough triple overtime loss to the Blackhawks in Game 1, the Bruins found themselves in a hole yet again after a dismal first period when Patrick Sharp beat Tuukka Rask to give his team a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes of play.

“It looked like they had more guys out there than we did,” Rask said on the slow start. “They were pouncing on every single puck in front of net, had a lot of good chances. We definitely played pretty bad. But, you know, it was good that we were only down by one and regrouped after that.”

The Bruins answered with a dominant second period where Chris Kelly found himself on the stat sheet after scoring the tying goal to give the Black and Gold life.

After a scoreless third period, Daniel Paille received a bullet of a pass from ex-Bruin Tyler Seguin and buried the overtime clincher past Corey Crawford to give the B’s the 2-1 win, and even the series at 1-1

“I decided to pop out and Seguin saw me,” Paille said about his game-winner. “I just tried to shoot it off as quick as I can with the ‘D’ coming at me. I felt good coming off and I was glad to see it go in.”

Here are the game highlights:
