Three nights earlier, Corey Crawford stood at his locker, physically spent but emotionally riding high enough to recount the dozens of saves he made in a triple-overtime victory. On Saturday night, the Blackhawks goaltender walked out of a door to see a throng of reporters waiting for him, ran his hand through his hair, sighed and made his way to succinctly discuss how one slipped by him.

"Good shot," he said.

The wrister fired in overtime by Bruins winger Daniel Paille provided a 2-1 win and ended yet another overtime game for the Blackhawks — their third in a row — to tie the Stanley Cup Final 1-1 as the series heads to Boston on Monday.

Hawks forward Brandon Bollig failed to control the puck, producing a chance for Bruins winger Tyler Seguin to pass to Paille, who found the far post 13 minutes, 48 seconds into the extra period.

Crawford made 26 saves but saw more pressure build on him as the game progressed. The Bruins were outshot by the Blackhawks 19-4 in the first period, but they outshot the Hawks 24-15 through the remainder of the game.

"We try to play the same way," Crawford said. "It doesn't matter the score. It doesn't matter what happens in a game. We played well but we don't expect anything easy. It's a hard-fought game and we were on the losing end."

The Hawks were hardly disappointed in Crawford, who made 51 saves in Game 1.
