Through six games, the Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings were even. Thanks in part to a late disallowed goal, the Original Six rivals also remained deadlocked through three periods of Game 7.
It would take until 3:25 into the extra session of Game 7 for a winner to emerge. Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook scored the winning goal after pouncing on a loose puck. Seabrook secured the puck and took off for Jimmy Howard's net, sending a series-winning wrist shot past the Red Wings' goalie.
