Chicago Blackhawks 5, St. Louis Blues 1, FINAL

When it counted, the defending champs proved they knew how to win.

The Blackhawks scored four goals in the third period to break open a 1-1 game and win it 5-1. Chicago won the series in six games.

Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp scored just 1:17 apart early in the third period to put Chicago ahead. Then Andrew Shaw tallied to break the game open and make it 4-1 Blackhawks before Duncan Keith's goal late in the period provided the final margin.

A goal by Bryan Bickell on a deflection gave Chicago an early 1-0 lead. T.J. Oshie got the tying goal from just outside the crease with 3:32 left in the first period to tie the game and give St. Louis some momentum.

The Blues controlled play in the second period, outshooting Chicago 17-3, but they couldn't break the 1-1 tie due to the strong play of goalie Corey Crawford.

This is a disappointing ending to a once promising season for St. Louis. The Blackhawks advance and await the winner of the Colorado-Minnesota series.
