One can only hope that the rest of the Stanley Cup Finals will be as thrilling as Game 1. A minute before midnight in Chicago the Blackhawks pushed across the fourth and deciding goal in the third overtime to beat the Boston Bruins.

Andrew Shaw scored the game winning goal deflecting a tip from Dave Bolland into the net.

The game was the fifth longest in Stanley Cup Finals history. Game 2 of the series will take place on Saturday at the United Center.
