The setting looked great.
The Hawks jerseys looked great.
The conditions were great.
So why not have a great game?

Dylan Sikura was credited with the second assist on the Perlini goal.
David Pastrnak would tied the game four minutes later, however. At the end of the first period, the score was tied at one. Boston had a 14-12 shot advantage after 20 minutes.

After Boston used their timeout at 39 seconds left in regulation, Brad Marchand scored into the emtpy Blackhawks net to give Boston the win.
Chicago finished with a 38-36 shot advantage and Boston blocked another 19 Blackhawks attempts.
