       BOSTON (AP) _ The Boston Bruins have beaten the Chicago Blackhawks 2-0 to take a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup finals.


        Daniel Paille and Patrice Bergeron scored in the second period and Tuukka Rask posted his third shutout of the playoffs by turning aside 28 shots Monday night, moving the Bruins within two wins of their second NHL championship in three years.


        The Blackhawks suffered a key loss moments before the game when high-scoring forward Marian Hossa was scratched from the lineup after being hit by a puck during warm-ups.


        Bryan Bickell nearly scored for Chicago, but his shot hit the right post with 42 seconds left.
        Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Wednesday night in Boston with the series shifting to Chicago on Saturday night.
