LT hockey player gets 2 games worth of Blackhawks play on birthday
COUNTRYSIDE – Seconds before his 16th birthday ended, Anthony Bellantuono’s gift got even better.
Bellantuono was sitting in section 116 of the United Center, where the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins were playing the hockey game that wouldn’t end. Shortly before midnight, in the third overtime, the Blackhawks’ Andrew Shaw deflected the puck into the net to give the home team a 4-3 win – and cap off one heck of a birthday.
“It was very exciting,” said Bellantuono, a goalie on Lyons Township Hockey Club’s junior varsity team. “It got really tiring. When they finally scored in the third period, I didn’t even know what was happening any more. I was just so tired.”
