Duncan Keith was a man amongst boys on the night with three assists and an important saved goal in the third period. It was his fourth multi-point game of these playoffs. Keith wasn't the only leader that took charge for the Blackhawks as Patrick Kane added an assist and another highlight goal to add to his resume.
Brandon Saad started off the scoring on the night with a goal at the 8 minute mark followed shortly by a goal at the 10:43 mark by Marian Hossa on a fantastic assist from Duncan Keith. Kane then got his only goal of the night not even two minutes later. Patrick Maroon got his seventh goal of the playoffs and brought the Ducks within two goals.
The second period was scoreless for both teams before an exciting third period. The Ducks came out fast with a Clayton Stoner goal at the 1:57 mark getting the Ducks within one and putting the pressure on Keith and the Chicago defense. However, Andrew Shaw added two more scores to put the game away and sent this series to a game 7. Corey Crawford was solid again with 30 stops on the night.
Head-to-head, the under is 3-1-2 in the last 6 meetings in Anaheim but the over is 3-1-2 in the last 6 meetings The Blackhawks are 9-23-2 in the last 34 meetings in Anaheim.
