Kane Helps Blackhawks Even Series with St. Louis

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images (CHICAGO, Ill.) -- Patrick Kane scored a little more than halfway through the first overtime session to give Chicago a 4-3 win over St. Louis in Game 4 of their Western Conference playoffs matchup. The Blackhawks dropped the first two games of the series but have rallied to win each of the last two.

"Every game feels like I've gotten a little bit better," said Kane who missed the last 12 games of the regular season with a leg injury. "Whether it's timing or getting used to playing in the playoffs again, whatever it may be, just try to keep getting better and better and use these games to my advantage."

After a scoreless first period, Kane helped Chicago take what looked to be a commanding lead in the second. Andrew Shaw opened the scoring on a power play goal before Kane made it 2-0 a few minutes later. The Blues would rally tough: Vladimir Tarasenko and Maxim Lapierre reeled off consecutive goals in the final 1:09 of the frame to knot things up.

Tarasenko added a second goal in the third to give St. Louis the lead. Less than for minutes later, Bryan Bickell scored his first goal of the postseason to tie the game at 3-3 and eventually send the game into overtime.

Last year's Conn Smythe Trophy winner ripped a shot off the crossbar before eventually scoring the game winner with a wrister that beat Ryan Miller.

The series now shifts back to St. Louis for Game 5 on Friday night.
