Patrick Kane's tally at 9:40 of overtime was the game and series winner, as the Chicago Blackhawks claimed a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild in Game 6 of this Western Conference semifinal.

Minnesota outplayed Chicago through the first half of the extra session, but the final break went to the defending champions. A point shot from Brent Seabrook hit the stanchion behind the Wild net and bounced back into play. Peter Regin missed the puck on the right side, but Kane trailed and lifted a backhander under the crossbar to end the best-of-seven set.

Kris Versteeg also scored and Corey Crawford came up with 34 saves for the Blackhawks, who claimed a 4-2 series win and await the winner of the Kings- Ducks battle in the conference finals.

Erik Haula picked up the lone goal for the Wild, while Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots in the season-ending setback.
