In the final elimination game for round 2, between two of the NHL's most notable rivals, the Blackhawks fought through 3 low-scoring, evenly matched periods only to have what they thought was the GWG from Nicklas Hjalmarsson waved off due to coincidental minors just before he scored.


With 1:47 seconds remaining in regulation, the 4 on 4 pushed the teams into overtime, where Chicago emerged victorious, courtesy of Brent Seabrook's classic clutch moves.

This win propelled Chicago to the Western Conference Finals, and eventually, their 5th Stanley Cup, just 3 years after their fourth.
After starting off the second round of playoffs with a strong 4-1 win over Detroit, the Blackhawks only managed to score twice in the next 3 games, giving the Red Wings a 3-1 lead in the series. But home ice helped them in Game 5, and gave them the momentum to win in Detroit for Game 6, which worked out perfectly to win Game 7 in the United Center, in front of 22,103 ecstatic fans.

The storied rivalry between these two Metropolises dates all the way back to 1926, as they're both members of the Original Six, and were the only two major midwestern cities in the group. Plus, their proximity had them in more regular season match ups than anyone else in the entire NHL. And when you add in playoffs, only the Bruins/Canadiens have more total games played.

Currently, the 37 year old Seabrook is under contract, but on the LTIR list for the Tampa Bay Lightning. He is all but officially retired, after playing 15 years, his entire playing career, for Chicago.
