After Blackhawks Force OT, Hanzal Shoots Winner For Coyotes

Brent Seabrook put in a rebound amid a flurry of activity in front of the net with 14.2 seconds left in regulation time for the Chicago Blackhawks, and Thursday's playoff game between the Phoenix Coyotes and Blackhawks went into overtime.

The goal had to be deflating for so many, including Phoenix goalie Mike Smith, who had a huge third period keeping the Blackhawks off the board. But the Coyotes defense faltered in the final seconds.

That feeling, though, came and went in a matter of minutes, as Martin Hanzal re-directed a shot from Adrian Aucoin at the 9:29 mark of the first overtime period, giving the Coyotes the win and a 3-2 win over the Blackhawks.

It was the Coyotes' first overtime playoff game since 1999 against St. Louis.
