Blackhawks Beat Canucks; Even Series at 1-1
CHICAGO (AP) _ Kris Versteeg scored go the go-ahead goal from the left circle with 1:30 left and the Chicago Blackhawks rallied to beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 on Monday night to even the Western Conference semifinals at 1-1 Monday night.

Game 3 will be played Wednesday night in Vancouver.

In a furious final rush, Versteeg lost the puck near the goal. It went out to Duncan Keith, who slid the pass to Versteeg for a shot that beat goalie Roberto Luongo to send the United Center into a frenzy.

Patrick Kane added an empty-netter with 47.7 seconds left.

The Blackhawks' Patrick Sharp tied the game earlier in the third with a short-handed goal.

Vancouver scored twice in the first 5:02 of the game. Mason Raymond had a goal, and Mikael Samulesson added a power play tally. Brent Seabrook brought the Blackhawks within a goal in the first.

Chicago's Antti Niemi finished with 24 saves. Luongo stopped 30 shots.
