Patrice Bergeron scored two goals, and the Bruins beat the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks 3-0 on Thursday night in the first meeting between the teams in Boston since the deciding game of the Stanley Cup finals.

The wait ended up being worth it, after all.
It’s not the local pub. It’s not your living room. It’s not your buddies house. It’s not even at Best Buy, near the gigantic LED TVs, standing under their frigid air conditioning (in fact, if you stay there too long, they might kick you out).
“Commit to the Indian” isn’t just an order by a coach or a phrase to be mocked on sports radio. It’s something that might warrant a deeper consideration.
As soon as a well-meant charitable effort is twisted into a Stanley Cup rallying cry, all bets are off.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin were drafted in the very same building where they’ll try to clinch the Vancouver Canucks first-ever Stanley Cup on Monday night.
With a fortunate bounce and a flawless goalie, the Vancouver Canucks are heading back to Boston with the chance to hoist the Stanley Cup for the first time.
In Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Aaron Rome delivered a late hit to Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton. The hit resulted in Horton losing consciousness and had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher.
The Boston Bruins’ Shawn Thornton received roughly 40 stitches above his eye after he got cut during Tuesday night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, but something else from that game has him angry.
