Game 6 recap

Star Tribune’s three stars

1. Corey Crawford, Blackhawks: If not for the Blackhawks goaltender, the Wild would have won the game in regulation. Crawford recorded 34 saves, many of them outstanding.

2. Patrick Kane, Blackhawks: The Chicago winger notched his sixth goal of the playoffs, and game-winner, midway through overtime.

3. Mikael Granlund, Wild: Granlund had four shots, two hits, one steal, two blocked shots and seven faceoff wins.

Turning point

It took a break in overtime, and the Blackhawks got it. Brent Seabrook’s dump-in took a reverse bounce off a stanchion and, with Wild players looking for it to come out the other way, Kane got to it first and scored.

By the numbers

14-0 Playoff record for the Blackhawks in their past 14 Games 5 and 6 after the series was tied at two at some point in the series.
