CHICAGO -- Boston’s third line featuring Chris Kelly, Tyler Seguin and Daniel Paille, was one of its best all game, so it was fitting that it got both goals that drew the Bruins even with the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Final. Paille played the role of overtime hero, scoring with 6:12 remaining in the extra period to give Boston a 2-1 win and make it a 1-1 series.

Having already combined for the goal that tied the game at 1-1 in the second period, the third line’s last shift in overtime was a fantastic one with a little help from some aggressive defensemen for Boston.

Adam McQuaid made a great play to keep the puck in at the blue line by intercepting Brandon Bollig's clearing attempt. McQuad put it right to Tyler Seguin’s stick. With one look, Seguin found Paille who had gotten to an open area of the ice. Paille then fired a low, hard wrist shot past Corey Crawford that clanked off the right post and into the net.

Boston survived a terrible first period and controlled play more as the game progressed, especially in overtime it seemed. The result was a huge Game 2 win.
