The Chicago Blackhawks face-off against the Boston Bruins on Monday night, in what could be the Stanley Cup clincher.

The Blackhawks lead the series 3-2 and need only one more win to defeat the Bruins in the seven-game series.

But no one is writing off the B’s, who stunned fans with one of the most dramatic comebacks in a single game in their quarter-final series against Toronto.

At least one sports watcher has called this series the best played and most skilled in hockey history.
