GLENDALE, AZ - APRIL 14: (L-R) Patrick Kane #88, Patrick Sharp #10, Jonathan Toews #19 and Duncan Keith #2 of the Chicago Blackhawks celebrate after Brent Seabrook (not pictured) scored the game tying goal against the Phoenix Coyotes in the final moments of the third period of Game Two of the Western Conference Quarterfinals during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Arena on April 14, 2012 in Glendale, Arizona.

Of course it went to overtime. If there’s been a theme to this playoffs, it’s that the first 60 minutes are there to setup the actual contest. Chicago’s 4-3 victory concluded the fourth day of the postseason, but we’ve already had six overtime contests.

For the second straight game, Chicago tied things up in the dying seconds of the third period. This time though, they were able to capitalize in overtime. Bryan Bickell ended up with the first and last goals of the game for Chicago. Not bad for a man who struggled offensively during the regular season.

Here’s some points to get the ball rolling.

    “Corey Crawford has started in four consecutive overtime playoff games. He has a x-x record in those contests.”

    Heh, I used to use a giant underscore to remind me to fill in later research before publishing. Get some sleep :)

    The Hawks pull out the win against the Yotes…….and the officials. Dear God this crew is terrible. From the missed too many men on the ice in game 1…..which resulted in a goal to the BS goaltender interference call on Toews……which resulted in a goal these guys should be embarrassed! The Shaw hit on Smith should have been a penalty, but should NOT have been a major and a game misconduct. Hell, Smith could have thrown a punch at someone and got an interference call. Don’t touch the goalie….even if he initiates the contact. All in all it was a blast to watch and now they go to Chicago with home ice in hand. Go Hawks!!

      After the Lucic-Miller incident they seemed very serious about goalies being off limits. Five and a game sends a good message.

        but punching someone in the head and then slamming it into the glass gets you a $2500 fine….
