Watch: Duncan Keith's late goal lifts Blackhawks, eliminates Predators

Sunday April 26th, 2015

The Blackhawks are heading to the Western Conference semifinals, and it's thanks to Duncan Keith. His third-period goal broke a 3-3 tie against the Nashville Predators, giving Chicago the lead with just 3:48 left in the game.

Keith gathered the puck at the offensive blue line where Seth Jones applied pressure. Keith deked the Predators young defenseman with fake shot, causing Jones to spin down to the ice. Meanwhile Keith went the other way, and beat Pekka Rinne with a seeing-eye laser of a slap shot for his second goal of the 2015 postseason/ His first, you may remember, was the winner in the second overtime of Game 1 of the series.
