Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews had a lot to cheer about as his team had an answer for every Bruins goal and never trailed.
The Bruins and Tuukka Rask left disappointed after yielding home ice back to the Blackhawks.
Michal Handzus opened the scoring early in the first period to give the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead.
That set off a celebration on the Blackhawks bench, after the team was shut out in Game 3.
Tyler Seguin watched as Rich Peverley scored in the first period for the Bruins to tie the game at 1-1.
The goal by Peverley, right, brought the crowd out of their seats.
Early in the second period Jonathan Toews slipped a shot past Tuukka Rask for a 2-1 Chicago lead.
Just more than 2 minutes later, Patrick Kane scored on Rask to give Chicago a 3-1 lead.
Milan Lucic narrowed the gap for the Bruins with a goal at 14:43 of the second period.
But Chicago's Marcus Kruger beat Rask for a goal to put the Blackhawks up 4-2 less than a minute later.
Before the second period closed Patrice Bergeron scored the fifth goal of the frame to narrow Chicago's lead to 4-3.
Bergeron also opened the third period with a goal past Corey Crawford to tie the game at 4-4.
At 11:19 of the third, Patrick Sharp scored on Rask to give the Blackhawks a 5-4 lead.
Johnny Boychuk scored the game-tying goal that forced overtime for the Bruins at 12:14 of the third period.
At 9:51 of the extra period, Brent Seabrook ripped a shot past Rask to win the game for the Blackhawks.
Seabrook dropped to the ice to celebrate his goal.
The goal set off a wild celebration for the Blackhawks.
And the winning goal sent the Bruins to the dressing room searching for answers about what went wrong.
