Kruger settles epic game two

There was no sign of the drama to come as two powerplay goals from Andrew Shaw and Marian Hossa put the Blackhawks 2-0 up only for Andrew Cogliano and Corey Perry to level things up by the end of the second period.

The Ducks rattled the pipe three times in the first two periods of overtime and Shaw thought he had won it in bizarre fashion only to see his goal ruled off as he was adjudged to have purposely scored with his head.

The Hawks would prevail, though, with Marcus Kruger batting down Brent Seabrook’s pass and firing home after 116 minutes of action to ensure the series goes to Illinois on Thursday all square.
