At 1:08 of the first overtime in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, Patrice Bergeron lined up at the left dot in the offensive zone at the United Center. On the other side was Chicago’s Michal Handzus, his enemy on 13 previous faceoffs.
Bergeron used an overhand grip with his right hand. He flared out his skates to get low and strengthen his base. He leaned in and won his ninth draw of the night against Handzus. On his backhand, Bergeron pulled the puck to Andrew Ference at the left point, just inside the blue line.
