The Bruins outshot the Blackhawks, 24-15, the rest of the way and after tying it in the second, they notched the 2-1 win at 13:48 of overtime on a Daniel Paille tally.
The frustration, mixed with a measure of utter disbelief, on the face of Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews was palpable. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
