CHICAGO (AP) - The Blackhawks are in the Stanley Cup finals, thanks to another big goal by Big Buff.
Dustin Byfuglien scored his third go-ahead goal of the Western Conference finals as Chicago rallied to beat the San Jose Sharks 4-2. Parked in front of the net on a third-period power play, the 257-pound forward converted a feed from Patrick Kane.
Kris Versteeg added an empty-net goal with 42 seconds left, and the red-clad fans at the United Center erupted, littering the ice with souvenir towels.
The four-game sweep sends the Blackhawks to the finals for the first time since 1992.
