Updated NHL Playoff Bracket: Penguins advance to second round by Dave Stevenson

NHL Playoffs: Rangers vs. Penguins Game 5 Full highlights, final score and more by Dave Stevenson

Here is where you can watch the Game 6 of the NHL playoffs first round series between the St. Louis Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks.

Tonight, either the Chicago Blackhawks will push the best-of-seven series to its very limit, or the St. Louis Blues will have the pleasure of eliminating Chicago from the playoffs on their own turf.

The Blues already won Games 3 and 4 in Chicago, pushing the series to 3-1. Game 5 was given to the Blackhawks thanks to Patrick Kane’s put-back goal 3:07 into the second overtime. This was Kane’s first goal of the series.

Yet, many of Chicago’s leading men are also failing to produce at the net. Captain Jonathan Toews has yet to score a goal, for example, and has instead looked frustrated and beside himself throughout the series.

Each game has been decided by one goal, and St. Louis has constantly gotten a lead due to Chicago mistakes and penalties. Duncan Keith was suspended from the first game of the playoffs, and the Blues won 1-0 in OT. Kane received a four-minute high-sticking penalty in Game 3, which gave up the win to the Blues in a 3-2 contest. Lucky, Chicago held off a win with Shaw suspended for Game 5, but the pattern is quite evidently a problem for the Hawks.

Game 6 airs tonight on NBC Sports Network at 8:00 PM EST, with a live stream available on NBC Sports Live Extra.
