Blackhawks Win Game One of Final

Alex Killorn (Harvard) scored the game-opening goal on a nifty backhand deflection in the first period, but the Chicago Blackhawks tallied twice in just under two minutes in the final frame to win Game One of the 2015 Stanley Cup Final, 2-1, at Tampa Bay on Wednesday night.

The host Lightning, who advanced by beating Original Six clubs Detroit, Montreal and New York, lost for the first time in the 2015 postseason after scoring first. Game 2 at Amalie Arena in Florida will be on Saturday at 7 p.m. (NBC).

Duncan Keith (Michigan State) assisted on the tying goal for Chicago, which bested Nashville, Minnesota and Anaheim to advance to the Final. Ben Bishop (Maine) stopped 19 of 21 Chicago shots Wednesday, while Killorn tied for the game lead with five shots on goal.

The Blackhawks are seeking their third Cup in six seasons, while the Lightning is pursuing its first Cup in 11 years.
