NCAA Players Play Parts in Game 4 of NHL Final
There weren't a ton of them, but several former NCAA players got their names on the scoresheet in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win by the Chicago Blackhawks over the host Boston Bruins in Game 4 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final.
Rich Peverly (St. Lawrence) scored the Bruins first goal, while Jonathan Toews (North Dakota) had a goal for the Blackhawks. Patrick Sharp (Vermont) put Chicago up, 5-4, in the third period on a power-play goal, his 10th tally of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, with Duncan Keith (Michigan State) assisting on Sharp's go-ahead goal.
Viktor Stalberg (Vermont) posted two hits, one shot on goal, and also blocked one shot for the Blackhawks, and Torey Krug (Michigan State) notched four shots on goal and three hits for the Bruins.
The series is now tied at two wins apiece, with three of the games having been decided in OT, including both of the Blackhawks' victories. Game 5 is Saturday night in Chicago, while Game 6, the potential Cup clincher, will be Monday in Boston.
