The Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Minnesota Wild 2-1 in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday night and are on their way to the conference finals against either the Los Angeles Kings or Anaheim Ducks.
Patrick Kane had the winning goal for Chicago in overtime, a backhand shot that got past Wild goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. Kane was mic'd up for the game, and afterward had some nice things to say to the Wild players as the two teams shook hands at center ice.
