WATCH LIVE: Blackhawks at Ducks, Game 5 of Western Conference Final


The Anaheim Ducks and Chicago Blackhawks have engaged in a back-and-forth series that’s left each side with two wins. The last three games have been decided by just a goal and two of them have gone to at least double-overtime. So while Chicago was commonly viewed as the favorite going into this series, its fair to say that both squads have a real shot of reaching the Stanley Cup Final.

The stakes will increase again tonight though as one of these teams will be pushed to the brink of elimination. The contest will start at 9:00 p.m. ET, but you can tune in as early as 8:00 p.m. for pregame coverage. The game will air on NBCSN and can be streamed via NBC Sports Live Extra:
