CHICAGO - Andrew Ladd tipped in teammate Dave Bolland's long shot less than three minutes into overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 2-1 comeback victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night, tying the Western Conference semifinal at 2.

Game 5 is Saturday night in Vancouver. Martin Havlat tied it at 1 with 2:44 left in regulation after it looked as if Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo was going to shut out the Blackhawks.

Havlat got the puck after Ladd shovelled it off the boards and his wrist shot from the between circles beat Luongo high.

And then, in overtime, Bolland chased down the puck along the boards and fired a shot from beyond the right circle. Ladd was in front of Luongo and tipped it in at 2:52 of overtime.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
