Blackhawks outlast Bruins in Cup opener

CHICAGO - Andrew Shaw skated off to the side and pumped his arms furiously.

One shot from the right point, plus two deflections was just enough to beat Tuukka Rask in the fifth-longest Stanley Cup finals game in history.

Shaw skated in front of the goal in the third overtime and redirected Dave Bolland’s shot into the net for the winning score in the Chicago Blackhawks’ 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins in a riveting Game 1 on Wednesday night.

Michal Rozsival started the winning sequence with a shot from the right point into traffic. Bolland tipped it before Shaw got it by Rask for his fifth goal of the playoffs.

And just like that, the longest finals game in five years was over.

Game 2 is Saturday night at the United Center.
