After dropping the first two games of their first round playoffs series with the St. Louis Blues on the road, the Chicago Blackhawks returned home and were able to hold serve, winning both games to even the series.
The two teams returned to St. Louis for game 5 on Friday night. They alternated goals with Marian Hossa and Ben Smith scoring for the Blackhawks and T.J. Oshie and Alex Pietrangelo finding the back of the net for the Blues, resulting in a 2-2 tie that sent the game to overtime.
Just after a great save by Blackhawks’ goalie Corey Crawford, defenseman Duncan Keith got the puck and sent it flying up the ice for Toews, who had just come in on a line change. Toews got out on a breakaway and was able to beat Blues’ goalie Ryan Miller, giving the Blackhawks a 3-2 victory.
