Patrick Maroon scored only nine goals in the regular season for the Anaheim Ducks. He is now credited with five in these playoffs, his latest opening the scoring against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Western Conference Final on Thursday.

Maroon’s deflection goal -- Corey Perry was also in front, screening Corey Crawford -- gave the visiting Ducks a 1-0 lead, briefly silencing the Chicago crowd.

With less than a minute remaining in the first period, Patrick Kane responded for the Blackhawks, deploying that always dangerous backhand shot of his.

Showtime’ struck again, this time beating Frederik Andersen to tie the game at one goal apiece.

For Kane, that counts as his first goal and point of this series.
