Game 5 of the 2014 Western Conference Final ended in what Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville called "maybe the greatest overtime" he's seen in his career.

Heading into the late-May matchup, the Blackhawks were down 3-1 in the series against the Los Angeles Kings before making their push to Game 7. For the first time that postseason, Chicago faced elimination, and the Blackhawks came out a desperate team and put on a strong display right from the time the puck dropped that Wednesday night.

The Kings fought back, as they had done all throughout the playoffs en route to their Stanley Cup victory. But on that night, it wasn't enough.

After 82 minute of back-and-forth play, Michal Handzus scored against his former team to keep the series alive. And although the Blackhawks fell in the final matchup of that series, their Game 5 win is one fans will be talking about for quite some time.

Tonight you can relive all the magic of Game 5, as Comcast SportsNet will re-air the Blackhawks' thrilling victory at 7 p.m.
