NHL Playoffs 2013: Chicago Blackhawks’ Game 7 Win Fitting for This Year
Comebacks come in all shapes and sizes and the Chicago Blackhawks proved that on Wednesday night with an overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings in a Western Conference Semifinals Game 7 thriller. An Original Six matchup for a spot in the Western Conference Finals was awesome enough, but a 3-1 tilt all the way to Game 7? Now that’s what makes the Stanley Cup Playoffs special.
The No. 1 seed Blackhawks came into the series as heavy favorites and took a 1-0 lead before losing three straight. However, they battled back and ended the seventh-seeded Red Wings’ hopes of an upset and proved that this 87-year-old rivalry is still as lively as ever.
Series that go to Game 7 never disappoint, but this one was a classic. Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford gave up one goal to go along with 27 saves and Brent Seabrook scored his first goal of the postseason three and a half minutes into overtime to set up a showdown with the defending champs for a spot in the Finals.
Chicago may have went undefeated in its first 24 games this year, but the Stanley Cup Playoffs always prove anything is possible, a with a series against the Los Angeles Kings looming, the fun is just beginning.
