Try and predict Game 5. I double-dog-dare you.

Chicago wins Game 1 with some kind of inspired comeback, and the Bruins respond by shutting them down and shutting them up in Games 2 and 3. So, Boston’s running away with it, right? Well, all it took was the renewed first line of Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane – and an encore performance from Round 2’s overtime hero, Brent Seabrook – to shoot the Hawks right back into the Stanley Cup Finals.

It’s now a best-of-three, and the Windy City’s hosting the party.

“Best of three with two home games but it doesn’t really mean much,” said Patrick Sharp, who leads the playoffs with 10 goals and added a third period marker on Wednesday. “Boston’s been tough in their building and tough in Chicago. I don’t think it matters where we play, it’s going to be an even series.”

Still, the media throng’s keenest eyes didn’t see much from Boston they liked in Game 4, even if they setup seemed fitting for another home win for Beantown (now 7-3 in Boston during the playoffs).

Chicago stormed the net, torching a normally sensational Tuukka Rask for five goals, and reviving their Presidents’ Trophy-winning offence.

It was almost as if they thought those black and yellow Bruins tunics had the word ‘VANCOUVER’ and a whale in the middle of them.

“Somewhere in Manhattan Beach, California, on Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Kings had to be thinking that the team they lost to in the Western Conference finals finally resurfaced in the Stanley Cup finals,” wrote ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.

“The speedy, attacking version of the Chicago Blackhawks was back in uniform on this night, surviving a wild 6-5 overtime affair that was only in doubt because netminder Corey Crawford had a rare bad night in these playoffs.

“Just like 2-0 was a flattering score to a Hawks team dominated by Boston in Game 3, nowhere but the scoreboard were the Bruins close on Wednesday night.”

Huffington Post social media editor Craig Kanalley – who just accepted a job as the social media director of the Buffalo Sabres – shared his thoughts on Game 4 with his 149,000+ Facebook subscribers:

“If anyone is watching this hockey game tonight, you now understand why hockey is so awesome and why I’m so excited for my new job,” he wrote.
