Can you spot the mate threat? #1

Jul 5, 2009, 9:31 AM 1

I (black) was playing a 5-minute live blitz game on chess.com against seferi (white). The following position developed after 32 moves.

White just played 33.Qxe6+. It was my move. I played 33. ...Kh8, and Fritz seems to think this position is drawn.

Here my opponent continued the attack with 34.Nf7+.

I blundered by playing 34. ...Kg8 (instead of 34. ...Rxf7, which would force a draw). Can you spot how my opponent finished the attack?
