DARLING PERFECT, KEITH THE OT HERO IN BLACKHAWKS' COMEBACK

Scott Darling made 42 saves in relief and Duncan Keith scored at 7:49 of the second overtime to help the Chicago Blackhawks rally from a three-goal deficit for a 4-3 win against the Nashville Predators, taking a 1-0 series lead.

* Darling, a sixth-round pick (No. 153, PHX) in the 2007 NHL Draft, made his NHL debut with the Blackhawks on Oct. 26 (2-1 W vs. OTT) and went 9-4-0 with a 1.94 goals-against average, .936 save percentage and one shutout in 14 appearances. Prior to that, the Lemont, Ill., native split time among the Southern Professional Hockey League, ECHL and American Hockey League.

* Via Elias, Darling is the first Blackhawks goaltender to make his NHL debut and win a Stanley Cup Playoff game in the same season since 1940-41 (Sam LoPresti). He also is the first rookie goaltender to win his playoff debut in a Chicago uniform since Ed Belfour on April 6, 1990 (5-3 W vs. MNS).

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Noting the NHL's theme that the 2013-14 season is like no other, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Wednesday the League is nearing the completion of its best season.

"By almost any measure, this may have been the most successful season on and off the ice in League history," Commissioner Bettman said during his press conference prior to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center.

"There has been a lot written, discussed and debated about the road we took to get to this point, where we are today, but I'm always one to look forward. Our objective was, and always is, to make a great game even greater, to give our fans the best sports experience and entertainment possible and the best opportunities to connect with our game. The 2013-14 campaign accomplished that objective."

Quote of the Day

Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
