The Anaheim Ducks are one win away from the 2015 Stanley Cup Final.
That's because Matt Beleskey scored 45 seconds into overtime Monday night to give the Ducks a 5-4 triumph over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks. The win gave the Ducks a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven, Western Conference Final. Beleskey's goal was his seventh of the post-season. Ryan Kesler assisted on the goal. He also scored earlier in the game, giving him six goals and six assists in the playoffs. Kesler's goal, at 5:42 of the first period, gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead. They would go up 3-0 before the end of the period on a goal by Sami Vatanen, his third of the playoffs. Vatanen also had a pretty assist on a goal by Patrick Maroon, which gave the Ducks a 4-2 lead at 14:45 of the third period. Two goals by Chicago's Jonathan Toews, including one from a very tough angle at 19:22 of the third, led to overtime. But it was a short one, as Beleskey pounced on a rebound of a Kesler shot. Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf had two assists in the game and now has 17 in the playoffs. May 26 - 12:25 AM
