There is no better time for your first goal—and first point—of the postseason, Brent Seabrook

With the Chicago Blackhawks locked in a 1-1 overtime tie with the Detroit Red Wings in the nail-biting Game 7 for the right to move onto the Western Conference Finals, Blackhawks center Dave Bolland landed a gargantuan hit at the red line to free the puck for Seabrook in space.

From there, Seabrook advanced into the attacking zone and sent a scorching 30-foot wrist shot past Jimmy Howard to keep Chicago's Stanley Cup hopes alive another series.

If not for that goal, we may have had a mutiny on our hands. 

With just under two minutes remaining in regulation, it appeared Chicago got the series-clinching goal when Niklas Hjalmarsson scored following a Henrik Zetterberg turnover. 

Not so fast. The goal was quickly waved off, as Kyle Quincey and Brandon Saad were whistled for roughing. And it's safe to say Blackhawks fans were not happy with the controversial call. 

Nevertheless, thanks to Seabrook's overtime heroics, it's a call we won't have to endlessly harp on and worry about going forward.

The Blackhawks, who capped a dramatic series comeback with this appropriate thriller of a game, will now take on the Los Angeles Kings for a spot in the Stanley Cup Final. 

For Brent Seabrook, he can take a moment or two to revel in his unforgettable, instant-classic performance. With just one shot, he's earned it.
