Can white prevent checkmate?

I reached here as black. White to play - Qh5 was my last move. I had just sacked my bishop for 2 pawns to open up the king. Can white save checkmate?

Full game:
Nimzowitsch-Larsen Attack
Fairly interesting in its own way:
1. b3 e5
2. Bb2 Nc6
3. Nf3 d6
4. e4 Nf6
5. Bb5 a6
6. Bxc6+ bxc6
7. Nc3 d5 
8. exd5 cxd5
9. O-O Bg4 
10. h3 Bh5
11. Qe2 e4
12. g4 Bxg4
13. hxg4 Nxg4
14. Nd4 Qh5

0-1
