A great night, just not for the Bruins

CHICAGO — Tuukka Rask’s description of the game-winning goal that got by him was as abrupt as the ending to the triple-overtime masterpiece that for the Bruins was defaced by defeat.

“Point. Shot. Tip. Goal,” said Rask, who stopped 59 shots for Boston. He could not rebuff a Blackhawks shot by Michal Rozsival that ricocheted off the stick of Dave Bolland and then actually deflected once more off the leg of Andrew Shaw, ending the Chicago marathon that was Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.
