Blackhawks Game 5 Notes For Monday @ Anaheim
* The Blackhawks beat the Ducks, 5-4, in double overtime Saturday night, improving to 4-0 during the 2015 postseason in games needing extra time to decide a victor. The five goals potted in Game 4 marked Chicago’s most in a single game during this year’s playoffs.
* The Ducks scored three times in 37 seconds in the third period of Game 4. The only team to light the lamp three times in less time during the Stanley Cup Playoffs all-time, were the Maple Leafs, who did so in 23 seconds against the Atlanta Flames on April 12, 1979.
* Anaheim has been tied at two games apiece in a best-of-seven nine times previously, and has won four of those series. That said, dating to the 2013 postseason, the Ducks have won three straight Game 5s when entering the tilt with the series tied, 2-2.
* The Ducks are 6-1 at home during the 2015 playoffs, outscoring opponents by a combined 24-10 in those seven contests. Anaheim has yet to lose back-to-back games during this year’s postseason.
* Chicago went 1-for-4 with the man-advantage Saturday night, improving to 6-0 in the 2015 playoffs when netting at least one power-play marker.
* Francois Beauchemin assisted on Emerson Etem’s goal in Game 4, giving him 27 career postseason helpers – a new Ducks’ franchise record for defensemen (passed Scott Niedermayer who had 26). Beauchemin is averaging a team-high 25:59 of ice time during the 2015 playoffs.
* Duncan Keith was on the ice for 40:39 in Game 4. Keith has played at least 40 minutes three times during the 2015 playoffs – most of any NHL skater in a single postseason since 2001.
* Dating to the 2009 postseason, Chicago has a combined record of 14-0 in Games 5 and 6 after splitting the first four games of any series.
