NHL: Boston 2, Chicago 0

June 17, 2013 at 11:53 PM

BOSTON, June 17 (UPI) -- Boston's Tuukka Rask recorded a 28-save shutout Monday and the Bruins skated a 2-0 win over Chicago and a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Rask notched his third shutout of the post-season and second straight at home for Boston, which racked up a seventh straight playoff win at TD Garden.

The Finnish goalie made eight of his saves during the second period as Boston was notching a pair of goals to grab control of the contest.

Daniel Paille made it 1-0 two minutes into the middle frame when he stripped the puck from Dave Bolland deep in the Chicago zone and fired a turnaround wrist shot that beat Blackhawks netminder Corey Crawford to the short side.

Patrice Bergeron added a power-play tally with 6 minutes left in the second, firing a shot in off the post following a pass through the crease from Jaromir Jagr.

Crawford finished with 33 saves for the Blackhawks, who will try to even the series in Wednesday's Game 4 at Boston.
