The Chicago Blackhawks have beaten the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals. Chicago won 4-3 in a game that went into triple overtimes. It was the fifth-longest Stanley Cup finals game in history.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

Let's go to a different kind of hunt. Hockey's Stanley Cup finals got off to a thrilling start last night in Chicago. Game one between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks was tied three-all at the end of regulation play and wasn't decided until the third overtime period.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: More banging in the boards and it's swept on back to Rozsival. Rozsival attempts. Score!

WERTHEIMER: Chicago's Andrew Shaw finally made the game-winning goal. It was the 117th shot of the game in the 112th minute, ending one of the longest games in NHL Finals history.
