    On this date nine years ago, the Chicago Blackhawks were staring into the face of a 3-2 series deficit against the Nashville Predators, but Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa teamed up to provide two of the most thrilling moments in team history.

    In the game, the Blackhawks were stuck playing the final moments of regulation short-handed, as Hossa served a major penalty. With just seconds to go in the game, the Blackhawks managed to get the puck into the Nashville zone, and after a shot by Jonathan Toews was stopped in front, Kane flipped home the rebound to tie the game and send the United Center into a frenzy:

    Not to be outdone, Hossa emerged from the penalty box in the overtime period, went down the ice, and promptly took a puck from the stick of Brent Sopel and casually scored to give the Blackhawks an incredible 5-4 victory:

    The Blackhawks would go on to win that series, and ultimately their first Stanley Cup title in 49 years later that summer.
