ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- The Chicago Blackhawks evened up their Stanley Cup First Round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues Friday night with a controversial 3-2 win that saw one St. Louis goal overturned and a Chicago tally upheld after video reviews by officials.

Blues Sniper Vladimir Tarasenko continued his torrid scoring streak with a goal in the second period to break a scoreless tie, but the Hawks answered with a goal by Duncan Keith that got past goalie Brian Elliot in traffic. It was Keith’s first game back following his suspension for a vicious hit that had him suspended for the last week of the regular season and the first playoff game Wednesday.

In the third period, a potential Tarasenko goal was wiped off the books because of an off-sides call after a review. Chicago responded with a goal by Andrew Shaw that may have been aided by goalie interference and was upheld on review. An empty net goal padded the goal late, rendering a Kevin Shattenkirk goal off a faceoff with under 2 seconds left meaningless.

Game 3 of the best-of-seven is in Chicago Sunday afternoon.
