According to TSN on Friday, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Jonathan Toews of Winnipeg, Manitoba scored the overtime winner as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the St. Louis Blues 3-2. Toews scored on a breakaway from Andrew Shaw and Duncan Keith to give the Blackhawks a 3-2 lead in the best out of seven Western Conference quarterfinal series.

It was Toews's second goal of the playoffs. The gold medalist for Canada from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and then again from the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi also scored the game winning goal for the Blackhawks in game three of the series, a 2-0 Chicago win. That was the start of Chicago's series comeback after losing the first two games to the Blues in St. Louis.

Anyway you look at it, the Blues and Blackhawks are playing in a classic with more goals scored than what was originally expected because of how good both teams' defense are. There has been a total of 28 goals scored in the series to date. All of the games have been tight with four of the five games needing overtime to decide the outcome.

Game six of the series will take place Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. mountain time in Chicago. Game seven if the Blues are victorious tomorrow will be Tuesday evening.

In other action, two Canadian Olympic gold medalists were excellent for the Anaheim Ducks on Friday. Corey Perry of Peterborough, Ontario and Ryan Getzlaf of Regina, Saskatchewan each scored a goal and two assists as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Dallas Stars 6-2 to take a 3-2 lead in their Western Conference quarterfinal. Perry and Getzlaf were teammates of Toews' on team Canada's gold medal winning hockey team at the last two Olympic Winter Games.

Getzlaf and Perry each scored in the third period to put the game out of reach for Dallas. Getzlaf scored at 4:30 of the third period to put the Ducks up 5-2 and then Perry put the Ducks up by four after scoring on former Conn Smythe Trophy winner Tim Thomas. Getzlaf will have to tighten up defensively however. In the first period he gave the puck away which led to a first period shorthanded goal by Stars' captain Jamie Benn.
