The Chicago Blackhawks had not led the game at any point in the first two periods and began the third down 4-2, but a scoring barrage early in the period took care of that and the Anaheim Ducks, who gave up a total of four goals to Chicago over the final 20 minutes.
Jonathan Toews got the third-period scoring started with a goal 1:04 in, and Patrick Sharp tied the game at four with a goal less than thirty seconds later. Sharp added another goal two minutes later to give Chicago its first lead. It also completed the hat trick for Sharp.
Near the midway point, Jonathan Toews scored his second goal of the period and gave his team a 6-4 lead. The Ducks pulled to within one on a goal with eight seconds remaining, but by then the game was essentially over.
