(Reuters) - The Chicago Blackhawks leveled their Western Conference finals series with Anaheim when they beat the Ducks 5-4 in double overtime in Game Four on Saturday.
The Blackhawks survived three goals in 37 seconds by the Ducks in the third period to bounce back and level the series at 2-2 when center Antoine Vermette scored 5:37 into the second overtime.
Vermette's first shot was blocked but he pounced on the rebound to fire home from an acute angle and send the home crowd into a frenzy.
It was their second overtime victory in the Western Conference finals and their fourth in the postseason.
Game Five is on Monday.
