By Jared Clinton

The Chicago Blackhawks trailed 3-1 early in Game 6 against the Predators, but came all the way back to defeat Nashville 4-3 thanks to a Duncan Keith goal late in the third. If Chicago can tidy up their defensive zone play, it could be another deep run for the Blackhawks. More

Kane absolutely ripped a slapshot top shelf off a faceoff to tie the game 3-3.

    Watch Ovechkin crush Tavares from behind, Kulemin score as play continues

    With how physical the series between the Capitals and Islanders has been, it's not surprising that the game-winning goal was scored seconds after a huge hit. Washington's Alex Ovechkin caught New York's John Tavares with a questionable hit before the puck ended up on the tape of Nikolay Kulemin, who made no mistake and potted the game-winning goal.
