The Blues look to eliminate the Blackhawks on their second try, while the defending champions hope to force a Game 7 when these teams collide at the United Center for Game 6 on Saturday live from Chicago.
St. Louis was a goal away from eliminating the reigning Stanley Cup champions, but couldn’t find the back of the net. Patrick Kane played hero for the Blackhawks with their backs against the wall, notching the game-winning goal in double overtime, his fifth postseason OT goal in his career.
The Blues have taken Game 1 at home (1-0 in overtime), and Games 3 and 4 on the road, 3-2 and 4-3, respectively, while the Blackhawks won Game 2, 3-2, in St. Louis and followed it up with their thrilling double overtime victory by a 4-3 count Thursday.
Marian Hossa (1), Artem Anisimov (2) and Artemi Panarin each lit the lamp for Chicago in its Game 5 victory.
Jaden Schwartz notched his third marker of the series for St. Louis, while Robby Fabbri (1) and David Backes (2) each scored in the third period to help the team overcome a 3-1 deficit and tie the game, necessitating overtime.
Chicago, which has won the Stanley Cup in three of the past six seasons, is now 44-15 in Games 4-7 under coach Joel Quenneville since 2009 and will look for another big win to force Game 7.
St. Louis has had difficulty making it out of the first round in recent years, including blowing two separate 2-0 series leads in the last two postseasons, one of which was to the Blackhawks two years ago.
Corey Crawford will once again man the crease for the Blackhawks after making 43 saves on 46 shots in Game 5. The Blues counter with Brian Elliott, who yielded four goals and made 31 saves last time out.
