Vermette was held out of the lineup in game 3, but returned for game 4 and netted his second goal of the playoffs to get the crowd of 22,404 on their feet in celebration. Brandon Saad had a goal and two assists, Jonathan Toews added his first goal of the series and an assist, while Patrick Kane scored for the second straight game.
Corey Crawford recorded 47 saves in the win, including holding off the Ducks in their furious push during the first overtime period.
Ryan Kesler, Corey Perry and Matt Beleskey scored in a span of 37 seconds in the third period. Those three goals were the second-fastest three playoff goals scored by one team in NHL history. The Toronto Maple Leafs scored three goals in 23 seconds against the Atlanta Flames on April 12th, 1979.
Frederik Andersen made 35 saves, while Emerson Etem added a goal of his own in the loss. Etem's goal was his third of the postseason to tie the game at one in the second.
Chicago also got the best of Anaheim in double-overtime in game 2 and they are now 4-0 in overtime games in this year's playoffs. They are also the first team in NHL history to win four multiple-overtime games in a single postseason.
The tied up series will shift back out west to Anaheim for game 5 on Monday night.
