    Jonathan Toews #19 of the Chicago Blackhawks celebrates after scoring a goal against the Nashville Predators in the second period of Game One of the Western Conference Quarterfinals during the 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Bridgestone Arena on April 15, 2015 in Nashville, Tennessee.

    Duncan Keith scored at 7:49 of double overtime, and the Chicago Blackhawks rallied from a three-goal deficit after the first period in beating the Nashville Predators 4-3 Wednesday night.

    The Blackhawks finished only two points back of Nashville in the Central Division, and they grabbed home-ice advantage back despite benching Corey Crawford after the first period. Scott Darling stopped every subsequent shot, making 42 saves in his postseason debut as Nashville took a franchise-record 54 shots.

    Jonathan Toews had a goal and an assist, and Niklas Hjalmarsson, Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews each scored for Chicago. Patrick Kane also had two assists in his return after missing 21 games with a broken collarbone.

    Colin Wilson scored twice and Viktor Stalberg had a goal, all in the first period for the Predators.

    Game 2 is Friday night in Nashville.
