Moment 7: Brent Seabrook vanquishes the Red Wings and completes the comeback

The Detroit Red Wings were moving to the Eastern Conference after the 2012-13 season. The rivalry that had raged for years was ending. The Blackhawks and Wings would only play twice a year.

It was a lockout-shortened season in which the Blackhawks set the record for most games without a regulation loss. The Blackhawks jumped out to a 1-0 series lead. They won 4-1 with goals from Hossa, Sharp, Johnny Oduya and Marcus Kruger.

The Blackhawks then got worked for the next three games. They lost 4-1 in Game 2, 3-1 in Game 3 and 2-0 in Game 4. The ’Hawks hit rock bottom in Game 4.

The Blackhawks would win 4-1 in Game 5 and won Game 6, 4-3 in Detroit. In Game 7, the Blackhawks were tied at 1 late in the game when Niklas Hjalmarsson looked to have essentially won the game with a late goal. The refs had called a penalty on Brandon Saad and Kyle Quincey  and the goal was waived off.

The game would go to overtime, and Seabrook would get an early chance and make the most of it.
