CHICAGO (AP) – Patrick Kane's short-handed goal tied the game with 13.6 seconds left in regulation and Marian Hossa came out of the penalty box to score the winner in overtime as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Nashville Predators, 5-4, on Saturday to take a 3-2 lead in the first-round series.
Chicago can advance in the Western Conference playoffs with a win at Nashville on Monday night.
The Blackhawks blew a 3-1 lead, and the Predators took a 4-3 lead on two third-period goals by Martin Erat.
With Nashville protecting its lead late and on a major power play created by Hossa's boarding penalty, Kane backhanded in a rebound off a shot by Jonathan Toews to tie it for Chicago. The Blackhawks killed the remaining 3:57 of Hossa's penalty in overtime.
