>> brian: silfverberg has put in so much effort in the defensive side of the game. i assume he'll get credit for this one. yeah. and it does go off -- i think he was trying to pull it back into the middle here to his teammate. and there's corey crawford, his reaction. silfverberg, terrific two-way player. we pointed that out before this game started. he has shown that he's got some offensive talent as well. i think they were just reviewing the goal to make sure it was a legal goal. it did go off of duncan keith. i'm sure they verified that. >> kenny: critical part of the game for silfverberg. despres and getzlaf the assists after that goal at 18:42 for the ducks. and now crawford back in goal.
the ducks have iced the puck. >> joe: it's been an interesting game. the guys in the studio i think nailed it when they said you know just when chicago would look like they were in complete control of the game, then anaheim would score. anaheim's got their game going later on then chicago finally scored a goal and then got it going. it's been very interesting to watch. >> kenny: silfverberg now with 13 points 2 today. he's tied for second in the league with kane johnson and getzlaf. acquired him last season in a deal for bobby ryan. an outstanding playoff for silfverberg. he assisted on the first ducks goal today and scores the fourth into an empty net.
