Seabrook (Almost) Sends It Into Overtime -- Again

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes were six seconds from a 2-0 series lead against the Chicago Blackhawks. This time they'd do it in regulation and hold on, right? No repeat of two nights earlier?

Wrong. Brent Seabrook, who forced overtime with about 14 seconds to play in the third period Thursday, did it again for the Blackhawks Saturday, this time with 5.5 seconds left.

Or so it stood for a few minutes during the intermission. The goal was changed and credited to the Blackhawks' Patrick Sharp.

The Blackhawks brought up an extra attacker in the final minute down 3-2. Then came a barrage of shots on goalie Mike Smith, who couldn't stop the last one.

The Coyotes have lost center Martin Hanzal and now left winger Lauri Korpikoski, it appears. Those two would have been key to the defense late in the game, but were not available.
