VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - David Bolland scored the go-ahead goal on a power play with 5:05 left, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 on Saturday night to take
a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference semifinal series.

Martin Havlat added an empty-net goal with 62 seconds left. The ending was delayed as disappointed fans littered the ice with drinks and popcorn.

The Blackhawks trailed 2-1 midway through the second period, but rallied to win for the third time in the series. Chicago can advance to the Western Conference finals at home with a Game 6 win on Monday night.
