Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - This could be the last time Chicago and Detroit
meet in the playoffs for a while due to the new realignment plan. Thankfully,
they're making the most of it.
Behind to a three-goal third period, the Chicago Blackhawks posted a 4-3 win
over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 6 of this Western Conference semifinal.
Next season, these Original Six teams will be in separate conferences and this
series appeared to be in the bag for Detroit after a 2-0 win in Game 4 gave
the team a 3-1 lead in the series.
The Blackhawks, though, rebounded with a 4-1 win at home on Saturday and goals
from Michal Handzus, Bryan Bickell and Michael Frolik in the third period on
Monday forced a Game 7 that will take place in Chicago on Wednesday.
Marian Hossa also scored a goal for the Presidents' Trophy-winning Blackhawks,
who got 35 saves from Corey Crawford.
Damien Brunner, Patrick Eaves and Joakim Andersson each scored a goal for the
seventh-seeded Red Wings, who saw Jimmy Howard give up all four goals on 28
