St. Louis Blues 4, Chicago Blackhawks 3, FINAL (OT)
Barret Jackman's goal at 5:50 of overtime gave the St. Louis Blues a 4-3 win in Game 2 of their opening-round playoff series with the Chicago Blackhawks. St. Louis now leads the series 2-0.
The turning point of the game came late in the third period when Brent Seabrook was given a major penalty and a game misconduct for a head shot to David Backes of the Blues. St. Louis tied it with just 6.4 seconds left in regulation on a goal by Vladimir Tarasenko.
The Blues had control of the game early and led 2-0 on goals by Chris Porter and Kevin Shattenkirk.
Chicago got a goal by Duncan Keith late in the second period to start its comeback before third-period goals by Brent Seabrook and Michal Rozsival put the Blackhawks ahead 3-2.
Seabrook will now wait to see how long, if at all, he will be suspended for that hit, and the Blues await word on when Backes will be able to return to the lineup.
The series resumes Monday night in Chicago.
