The Bruins took Chicago’s best punch, and did a lot more than just live to tell about it.

The Blackhawks started Game 2 with a frenzied attack Saturday night, outshooting the overwhelmed Bruins by a 19-4 margin. But an otherworldly Tuukka Rask held the fort, limiting Chicago to just one goal, and his teammates found their footing. They tied the game, forced overtime, and then got a goal from Daniel Paille at 13:48 of the first overtime period for a 2-1 victory Saturday night that tied the Stanley Cup Finals at one game each.

The series now heads back to Boston, with Game 3 scheduled for Monday night at TD Garden.

The Blackhawks' only first-period goal was a Patrick Sharp fourth-chance attempt, as Michael Handzus engaged in hand-to-hand combat in front of the net. It was one of six shots for Sharp in the first period as Chicago swarmed Boston with speed and aggression each time the B’s defensemen coughed up another turnover.
