Game 3 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final was not like the first set of games. It did not need any extra hockey in order to decide the winner and it featured a dominating performance by one team rather than a fast paced back and forth tilt. That dominant team was the Boston Bruins, who shut down most of the Blackhawks attacks for the entire game, and those chances that Chicago did get were hardly dangerous. So Boston goes into Wednesday night’s game 4 with the chance to push Chicago to the brink of elimination and take a 3-1 series lead. The Blackhawks could be in some hot water here.
