Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Blackhawks are back in the Western Conference finals, as Brent Seabrook scored 3:35 into overtime to give Chicago a 2-1 win over Detroit in Game 7 of this Western Conference semifinal series.
In the extra session, Dave Bolland put a big hit on Gustav Nyquist along the boards in the neutral zone and it sprung the puck loose. Picking it up ahead of his own blue line, Seabrook skated up the middle and let fly with a wrist shot that tipped off the leg of Niklas Kronwall, changing direction enough to fool Jimmy Howard to end the game and series.
The Presidents' Trophy winners will now host the Los Angeles Kings, who took out San Jose in seven games, to decide who will represent the West in the Stanley Cup Finals with Game 1 set for Saturday.
