Chicago Blackhawks: Milestones Achieved During Game #2 Loss

By Keith Schultz

The Chicago Blackhawks couldn’t seal the deal on Saturday and left Amalie Arena with a 4-3 loss with the series tied 1-1 in the Stanley Cup Final.  During the Chicago Blackhawks loss they did achieve some impressive milestones.

The first milestone was reached when Brent Seabrook scored in third period.  The goal was #7’s 19th career playoff goal which put him into a tie with Doug Wilson and Bob Murray on the Chicago Blackhawks all-time goal scorers list by a defenseman.

Here is the Top 10 List:

Brent Seabrook– 19

Doug Wilson-19

Bob Murray-19

Duncan Keith-14

Dustin Byfuglien-14

Chris Chelios-12

Pat Stapleton-10

Gary Suter-9

Pierre Pilote-8

Doug Jarrett-7

One thing about

Brent Seabrook

is he scores goals in the biggest spots which includes three overtime winners none of which were bigger than his Game #7 overtime classic in 2013 over the Detroit Red Wings.

Brent Seabrook scored a big one to tie the game in the third period, but the Chicago Blackhawks weren’t able to get the go ahead goal and now the series is tied. One thing we know about Seabrook is when the games are important #7 will be there firing away so don’t be shocked if Seabrook scores another big goal when the series shifts back to Chicago on Monday night.

The other milestone is that Jonathan Toews notched his 100th career playoff point when he assisted on Brent Seabrook’s game tying goal.  Toews became just the 6th Chicago Blackhawks player to hit the 100 point playoff plateau.  Here is the Top 10 list of playoff points scored by a Chicago Blackhawks player

Stan Mikita-150

Denis Savard-145

Bobby Hull-129

Patrick Kane-111

Steve Larmer-111

Jonathan Toews-100

Doug Wilson-80

Patrick Sharp-79

Jeremy Roenick-78

Duncan Keith-73

Toews and Kane are on a list of only 14 active players in the NHL with 100 career playoff points.  Toews has had some great highlights in his career and we could run video for the next day from his great showing at the beginning of Game #7 in Anaheim to just be the best leader in the NHL.  Here is one of my favorite playoff highlights by Toews and one of his 100 career playoff points.

Milestones are great, but Championships are better so the Chicago Blackhawks will have to shake off the Game #2 loss in Tampa and get back to work and defend the United Center ice on Monday night.  Joel Quenneville broke up Toews and Kane in the third period, look for more of the same on Monday night, and hopefully we will see more milestones and numbers reached with more wins.
