Boston tried to keep up the defensive pressure on Chicago, even once plays were whistled over.

Kane then scored again when the puck bounced off the side of the net and right to his stick’s backhand side.

Zdeno Chara cut the deficit in half with this laser that screamed by Corey Crawford’s high glove side.

Crawford didn’t really have a chance on such a howler, and the Bruins looked like they may have regained some momentum.

Both teams were actually shorthanded, roster-wise, during the third period. Boston’s Patrice Bergeron was taken to the hospital for tests, and Chicago’s Jonathan Toews didn’t play the entire final period after suffering this hit from Johnny Boychuk.

But Boston couldn’t break through against Corey Crawford and Chicago put the game away with an empty-netter with 14 seconds to go. Milan Lucic was not pleased with this turn of events.
