Blackhawks Steal Game 1 Of Stanley Cup Finals
The Chicago Blackhawks used a late third period rally, scoring twice in under two minutes to take Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals 2-1 over the Lightning in Tampa.
Antoine Vermette scored the game-winner, going top shelf on Tampa Bay's Ben Bishop. This came just 1:58 after Chicago tied the game on Teuvo Teravainen's long wrister that Bishop likely never saw because of traffic in front of the net.
Corey Crawford stopped 23 shots for the Blackhawks, who will remain on the road in Game 2 Saturday.
Alex Killorn scored his eighth of the playoffs for the Lightning in the first period - it was the first time this postseason that Tampa lost after having scored the first goal.
