When the Stanley Cup Final is tied after two games, the winner of the third game historically goes on to win the whole thing 84 percent of the time.
The Chicago Blackhawks’ chances to win that game became precipitously more difficult in warmups Monday: Winger Marian Hossa suffered an injury that caused him to miss Game 3 at TD Garden.
A disjointed, semi-organized Hawks team survived the first period, but a Daniel Paille score and a Patrice Bergeron power play goal produced a 2-0 lead for the Bruins after two periods at TD Garden. That score would be the final.
Game 4 of the series is Wednesday night at 7pm in Boston. Coverage begins at 6:50pm on 720 WGN, wgnradio.com, our apps, TuneIn and iHeartRadio.
