Critical Keys in Game 5 of 2013 Stanley Cup Final
Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Blackhawks showed remarkable resiliency in Game 4 to even the 2013 Stanley Cup Final at two games apiece with a 6-5 overtime win over the Boston Bruins despite giving up three leads through regulation.

Now the series goes back to the United Center for a crucial Game 5.

Since 1939 when the Cup final started using a best-of-seven format, there have been 22 series that were tied 2-2. The team that won Game 5 went on to hoist the Stanley Cup in 15 of those years (68 percent). But since 2001, four of the six teams that lost Game 5 to go down 3-2 in the series pulled off a comeback and won the Stanley Cup.

Let's look at the keys to victory for Saturday's Game 5, which will be the latest chapter in a thrilling Stanley Cup Final.
