ICE HOCKEY: BRYAN BICKELL’S OT GOAL GIVES CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS SERIES SPLIT WITH PHOENIX COYOTES


Game 2 between the Chicago Blackhawks and Phoenix Coyotes was the seventh overtime game of the first round, and perhaps its most thrilling: The teams combined for an incredible 18 shots on goal before Bryan Bickell ended it by giving Chicago a 4-3 win and a 1-1 series split after the 'Hawks lost Game 1 in Over time

It was Bickell's second goal of the game, after scoring a power-play tally in the first period. Full marks to Viktor Stalberg, who intercepted an Adrian Aucoin clearing attempt and had the puck ricochet over to Bickell for the chance in front.

Of course, Bickell would have never had the opportunity to win the game had Patrick Sharp not deflected this Brent Seabrook shot with six seconds remaining in the third period

The game will be remembered for two things other than Bickell's heroics; A controversial game misconduct penalty on Andrew Shaw for colliding with Mike Smith, sending the Coyotes goalie to the ice for several minutes before he remained in the game and for Corey Crawford, who stepped up in the third period and overtime to keep the Blackhawks in the game.

Game 3 is on Tuesday in Chicago.
