BOSTON -- The Bruins scored a pair of second-period goals and saw Tuukka Rask pick up his third shutout of the playoffs on Monday night at the TD Garden to give the Bruins a 2-0 win in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final and take a 2-1 series lead.

Boston took a 2-0 lead into the third period, thanks to second-period goals from Daniel Paille and Patrice Bergeron.

Paille made it 1-0 just 2:12 into the second, as he came from behind the net and swooped in on a loose puck to Corey Crawford's left and quickly spun around with a wrist shot upstairs. Credit Chris Kelly for winning a battle in the corner after Crawford couldn't glove a Tyler Seguin shot from the slot. And Paille swooped in on the loose puck and finished.

Bergeron scored with 5:55 left in the second period to make it 2-0 with 10 seconds left on a Bruins 5-on-3 power play. Both Chicago penalties were caused by Paille's efforts to skate the puck hard to the net from the left wing.

The goal came as a result of a hard Jaromir Jagr pass across the top of the crease. Bergeron received the pass at the left post and put it home.

Game 4 is Wednesday night at the Garden.
