Momentum is certainly on the Bruins' side after a convincing performance in Game 3 shut down the Blackhawks and put Boston two wins from its second Stanley Cup in three years.

Both teams are scheduled to practice today at TD Garden, then the action resumes Wednesday with Game 4. A win by the Bruins in Game 4 would give them a chance to close out the series Saturday in Chicago in Game 5.

The Blackhawks have few answers for what is causing their power play woes, and they also realize losing so many faceoffs is adding to the problem, writes Chris Kuc and Brian Hamilton in the Chicago Tribune.

Viktor Stalberg returned to the Blackhawks' lineup, but he wants even more ice time, Hamilton reports.

Chicago Sun-Times columnist Rick Telander sings the praises of Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford, and suggests he might be Canada's best bet as goalie in the Olympics next year.

ESPNChicago's Scott Burnside explores the battle between Selke Trophy winner Jonathan Toews and fellow finalist Patrice Bergeron.
