More Unsung Heroes For Bruins: Paille, Kelly
Boston forward Daniel Paille scored the first overtime goal of his playoff career (64 games) at
13:48 of the extra session. Paille has two game-winning goals in 18 games this postseason
(also Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals vs. NY Rangers). That equals his total from
his last 246 regular-season games.
Paille also earned an assist on Chris Kelly's second-period goal that lifted Boston to a 1-1 tie,
marking his second multiple-point night of the 2013 playoffs (1-1--2, Game 3 of the Eastern
Conference Semifinals vs. NY Rangers).
Kelly's goal was his first of the 2013 playoffs. He broke a 22-game goal drought (five regularseason,
17 playoffs) in tallying for the first time since April 17 vs. Buffalo.
Stanley Cup Final Trends
* Teams winning Game 2 of the Final have gone on to win the Stanley Cup in 55 of 73 years
since the best-of-seven format began in 1939 (75.3%), including eight of the past 10 seasons.
* This marks the first split in the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final since 2004, when
Calgary won the first game on the road and Tampa Bay came back to win Game 2. The
Lightning eventually won that series in seven games.
* For the second consecutive year, Games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final have been decided
in extra time. Prior to 2012, it had been 61 years since the first two games of the Final required
overtime. In the epic 1951 Stanley Cup Final, all five games between the Toronto Maple Leafs
and Montreal Canadiens went to extra time. The Maple Leafs won four of the five games to
capture the Stanley Cup.
* The Bruins snapped the Blackhawks' six-game home winning streak in improving to 6-3 away
from TD Garden in the 2013 playoffs. Boston is the only club with a winning road record this
postseason, outscoring opponents 29-18.
* The Bruins are 10-2 in their last 12 games (since Game 6 of the Eastern Conference
Quarterfinals), with both losses coming in overtime. They have outscored opponents, 38-21, in

Stanley Cup Final Trends, continued
* Boston's victory broke a nine-game winning streak by home clubs in overtime games this
postseason. Overall, home clubs are 19-7 (.731) in games decided in extra time.
* For the second time in as many games in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final, the winning club did not
lead at any point in the game.
* The Bruins posted their League-leading fifth victory after surrendering the first goal of the
game (5-2). Chicago fell to 9-3 when scoring first.
* The Blackhawks' Patrick Sharp tallied his ninth goal of the playoffs, tying him with the Bruins'
David Krejci for the overall lead.
Tonight's game marked the 26th overtime of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, tied for the
second-most in one postseason.

Bruins' Penalty Kill Excels
The Bruins did not allow a power-play goal in three Blackhawk opportunities in Game 2 and
have killed off 22 consecutive penalties dating to May 25 (Game 5 of the Eastern Conference
Semifinals vs. NY Rangers), including all six Chicago opportunities through the first two games
of the Stanley Cup Final. The Bruins improved their penalty-killing percentage in the 2013
Stanley Cup Playoffs to 87.9% (51-for-58), including an 89.3% mark on the road (25-for-28).
The Blackhawks successfully killed both Bruins power plays in Game 2 and still lead the League
with a 93.7% penalty-kill rate (59-for-63), including a 91.4% mark at home (32-for-35).
Lucic Leads Bruins' Hit Parade
The Bruins registered 50 hits to the Blackhawks' 34. Fifteen of the Bruins' 18 skaters registered
at least one hit, led by Milan Lucic's game-high 10. Lucic now leads all players in that category
in the 2013 playoffs (82). The Blackhawks have been outhit by opponents in 16 of their 19
games in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Bruins Withstand Blackhawks' Initial Push
After falling behind 1-0 and being outshot 19-4 through the first period, the Bruins rebounded by
outscoring the Blackhawks 2-0 and outshooting them 24-15 the rest of the way.
