Detroit emerged from the second intermission of Game 6 seemingly in control and primed to eliminate top-seeded Chicago. Instead, the Red Wings fell victim to a stunning Blackhawks rally that resulted in a 4-3 defeat for the home squad and set the stage for Game 7 drama.

Chicago tallied three goals in the first 9:43 of third-period action to overcome a 2-1 deficit. Michal Handzus and Bryan Bickell netted the game-tying and go-ahead goals, respectively.

Michael Frolik added to the Chicago lead when he became the first player in NHL history to score two postseason penalty shot goals.  Damien Brunner notched a late goal for Detroit but it wasn't enough to prevent a disappointing loss on home ice.

Chicago has won two consecutive contests since falling behind 3-1 in the series. The Blackhawks will host Detroit in Game 7 on Wednesday night with a trip to the Western Conference final at stake.

Final: Chicago 4, Detroit 3
