St. Louis Blues fans can take a deep breath now. A raucous Game 2 in St. Louis ended with Barret Jackman's goal in overtime, giving St. Louis a 4-3 win and a 2-0 series lead over the Chicago Blackhawks.

A lot of things had to happen to get to the winning goal. After a couple of suspect hits by Chicago in the third period, Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko tied the game with six seconds left to send the game to overtime.


All of that eventually led to the game-winner in overtime, scored by the Blues' Barret Jackman on a shot that trickled through Chicago netminderCorey Crawford's pads.


Chicago will try to dig out of a 2-0 series hole when Game 3 begins on Monday in Chicago.
