Brad Marchand scored two goals in 68 seconds to give the Bruins a one-goal lead over the Blackhawks early in the second period, but it wasn't long before Brandon Bollig tied things back up on Sunday afternoon.

Marcus Kruger passed the puck from behind the net to Bollig, who fired a short-side shot that snuck its way between the glove and leg pad/skate of Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask.

After the Blackhawks' 3-2 shootout victory, Rask was asked about just what happened on that play and how Bollig's shot got past him.

"Ha! Good question. I had the post covered, my skate was there," he said. "I was ready. Somehow it went over, or, I don't know. It bounced off my skate or something? I tried to look at the replay but you couldn't really tell. I mean I saw it barely got over, but it's a goal.

"You know really nothing else you could have done, sometimes those weak goals from the wing or stuff like that, they hurt more than those kind of goals. But tough break."
