Brent Seabrook is not a perfect defenseman. He makes mistakes in the defensive zone and often has to be bailed out by partner Duncan Keith.
However, Seabrook is a star player who has stepped up in the postseason.
He had two signature moments in the 2013 Stanley Cup run. The biggest may have been the seventh-game overtime goal (video above) he scored against the Detroit Red Wings in the Western Conference Semifinal.
Seabrook's wicked wrist shot rescued the Blackhawks after the team found itself in a 3-1 hole through four games. The Blackhawks were on the brink of being upset in the series, but they rallied with victories in Games 5 and 6.
They appeared to take a late lead in Game 7 on a Niklas Hjalmarsson slap shot, but that goal was waved off because of a disturbance away from the puck. The Blackhawks appeared deflated and vulnerable after that ruling.
However, Seabrook picked up the puck in the neutral zone early in overtime and skated in on Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard. He twisted a wrister at the 3:35 mark that beat Howard high to the glove side, and the Blackhawks survived and advanced (video above).
He scored another overtime winner in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Bruins. With Boston leading the series 2-1, the Bruins would have put the Blackhawks in another 3-1 hole if they had scored in overtime.
However, Seabrook fired a point shot by Rask at the 9:51 mark of overtime, and the Blackhawks won the game and tied the series. Seabrook proved he had a rocket of a slap shot and he used it at the right time in that game.
