Anaheim Ducks at Chicago Blackhawks (ANA 2 - 1 CHI)

8:00 Eastern, CBC, NBC

Ooh, what's this? A primetime weekend billing on NBC itself?

Anaheim took Game 3 by a score of 2-1. It wasn't another epic triple-overtime affair, but was still another great game. After taking a lead in a pretty dominant second period, the Ducks turtled their asses off to grind out the victory. Chicago had their moments of course, including Patrick Kane, doing, um, this (WARNING: Pierre):

So few players in the world can pull that off and he made it look so easy. Get the hell out.

With a win tonight, Anaheim can bring the series back home at match point. It's a pretty important game for the Blackhawks to keep the series moving and bring us back to a best of three.
