Series MVP: Jonathan Toews, C, Chicago Blackhawks

Toews did it all for Chicago, which is now undefeated in 10 straight series when leading 3-2. The Blackhawks captain led his team with eight points (two goals, six assists). Toews notched the game-winner in Game 6, a tap-in at the side of the net with 31 seconds left in the first period. Away from the net, he led Hawks centers in the faceoff circle, winning 59.3 of his draws. He was also instrumental on Chicago's penalty killing unit, which held the Predators to just one power play goal in 26 opportunities, logging an average of three minutes per game.

Dennis Dodd: Chicago in 5: The Hawks are going to have to outscore teams and hope their goalies steal a series.

Off the Mark
