The Boston Bruins remain winless in three Stanley Cup Final rematches in the Claude Julien era. After a pair of losses to their 2011 adversaries from Vancouver, they settled for a regulation tie and 3-2 shootout loss Sunday afternoon to the Blackhawks in Chicago.

As is all but inherent in a single-point gain, especially against a fellow established powerhouse, Sunday’s effort yielded a mixed bag for the black and gold.
