Seemed to be mix-up between Beauchemin and Lindholm and Teuvo Teravainen finds Brent Seabrook who snaps one home with 24.8 seconds left. 3-2

Teravainen lifts Blackhawks within one

Teuvo Teravainen created a turnover behind the Anaheim goal then found Brent Seabrook outside the right faceoff circle, and Seabrook found a sliver of daylight to narrow the Ducks' lead to 3-2 at the second intermission. Follow live

Ducks have rejoined this game after slow start to the second. Lots of pressure as they continue to pound Chicago defenders.

Scott Powers @ESPNChiPowers

Quiet night for Hossa. He's yet to attempt a shot. The top line also has the Blackhawks' worst possession numbers.

Scott Burnside @ESPN_Burnside

Ducks fans have a right to be angry no call on two-hander from Brent Seabrook on Jiri Sekac as he drives the net. Make up call now. Ana PP.

Chicago gets one back to start the 2nd

Anaheim goaltender Frederik Andersen hasn't seen much action tonight, and maybe that's why Teuvo Teravainen was able to sneak a routine wrister into the back of the net to narrow the Blackhawks' deficit to 3-1. It was just Chicago's 4th shot on goal. Follow live

Scott Powers @ESPNChiPowers

Blackhawks's 3 shots on net was their lowest total in a period in this year's playoffs. Previous low was 4 vs. Wild in 3rd period of GM 3.

Scott Powers @ESPNChiPowers

Blackhawks haven't had many periods worse than that. Outscored 3-0, outshot 24-19 (11-3 on net), lost 10-of-26 faceoffs & had 6 giveaways.

Scott Burnside @ESPN_Burnside

First Chicago shot comes with 3:40 left in the first and Frederik Andersen had to be sharp off Ducks turnover. Still 3-0.

Anaheim Ducks @AnaheimDucks

MILESTONE: With an assist on Vatanen's goal, Ryan Getzlaf ties his own franchise record for most points in a postseason (18 in 2009).

It's all Ducks in Game 5

The Blackhawks still don't have a single shot on goal. Anaheim? Well, the Ducks have 8 shots -- and 3 goals. A clean faceoff win by Ryan Getzlaf led to a Sami Vatanen rip, and Anaheim has a 3-0 lead ... and is threatening in the offensive zone again. Follow live

Scott Powers @ESPNChiPowers

Ducks in complete control so far. Blackhawks still looking for first shot on net with 6:52 left in the first period.
