Chicago at Vancouver - Game 5
Kris Versteeg controlled the puck in the Canucks zone and fed a crisp pass to Brian Campbell at the point. Campbell one-timed a slap shot that was turned aside by Roberto Luongo. However, Luongo released a long rebound and Byfuglien was in the right spot at the right time to bury the puck into the empty net and give the Hawks a 1-0 lead.
Byfuglien’s second goal of the playoffs wasn’t only the first time Chicago scored first in this series, but it also marked the first time the Hawks scored in the first period on Luongo.
Once in the Chicago zone, Sedin passed the puck across the ice to Mats Sundin who was waiting at the left wing boards. Sundin fired a shot from the top of the left circle past Nikolai Khabibulin, giving the Canucks a 2-1 lead.
With the man advantage, Troy Brouwer knocked down Ryan Kesler along the boards to keep the play alive. Seconds later, Kesler tried to clear the puck, but Brian Campbell kept it in and dished the puck to Dustin Byfuglien. Byfuglien inched closer to the goal and wristed a shot through Luongo’s five-hole using the screen of Brouwer.
Although he didn’t get credit for a point on the play, Troy Brouwer was a major contributor for the tying goal. From the Versteeg scrum to Byfuglien’s second goal of the game, Chicago grabbed plenty of momentum heading into the third period.
The Blackhawks were on a power play with less than seven minutes to go and the game tied 2-2. Cam Barker got caught pinching, allowing Kesler to lead a 2-on-1 break against Brian Campbell. Campbell held the middle perfectly to prevent a pass and forced Kesler to shoot short side. Khabibulin didn't overcommit to the potential pass and made an outstanding arm save on the snap shot, putting the puck into the screen.
Although Khabibulin only faced 21 shots in the game, this save kept the score tied -- and just over a minute later, the Hawks went ahead to stay on Dave Bolland's goal.
Kane moved into the right circle and threw a perfect seam pass to Dave Bolland, who was waiting near the left dot. Bolland snapped the puck over Roberto Luongo for the go-ahead goal with 5:05 to go for the game-winner in the Hawks' 4-2 win in Game 5, giving them a chance to wrap up the series at home on Monday night.
FINAL SCORE: Blackhawks 4, Canucks 2
