That was fun, wasn't it? After this series's first three games only yielded 12 total goals, both teams went off tonight for 11 combined goals. The game was tied 5-5 at the end of regulation, but midway through overtime, Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook slapped a wicked shot low past Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask for the winning goal.
The puck squirted to Seabrook on the right side of the ice after left wing Bryan Bickell had a long shot deflected. Seabrook controlled the puck with a touch and then shot the puck past two Bruins defenders just inside the far post.
The goal came after a wild third period. The Blackhawks were up 4-3 at the start, but Bruins center Patrick Bergeron scored 2:05 in to level the score. Patrick Sharp scored at 11:19 to give Chicago the 5-4 lead, but less than a minute later, Johnny Boychuk scored to tie the game again.
It was a crucial win for Chicago, who had six different goal scorers on the night. If the Bruins won, the series would've been 3-1 and likely over. Instead, it's 2-2 with Game 5 on Saturday in Chicago.
Seabrook's goal helped break a Bruins seven-game home winning streak. Rask, who's been playing out of his mind throughout the playoffs, finished with 41 saves.
