Blackhawks-Red Wings Game 7 on tap after Chicago rally
Question of the Day
Frolik’s penalty shot proved to be the winning goal Monday night, giving the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 6 and forcing a deciding game between the Original Six rivals in their last Western Conference postseason series.
Frolik became first player in league history to score two goals on penalty shots in the playoffs.
“I was kind of surprised that I was the first one in history,” Frolik said. “It’s a little bit special.”
He hopes his latest goal on a penalty shot in the playoffs helps the Blackhawks more than the previous one did. Frolik scored on a penalty shot on April 24, 2011 to pull Chicago into a third-period tie with the Vancouver Canucks, who went on to win the game.
The NHL’s top-seeded team hopes home ice is an advantage this time when its hosts seventh-seeded Detroit on Wednesday night in Game 7.
The Red Wings, meanwhile, are counting on playing with confidence after beating second-seeded Anaheim on the road in Game 7 of their first-round series.
“We’ve been there before,” Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. “Now, we just have to do that again.”
“I pretty much told myself it can’t get any worse,” Crawford said.
It did — for Detroit.
The Blackhawks picked up their crestfallen goalie by scoring three times in the first half of the third period to win a second straight game after trailing 3-1 in the series, their last against Detroit because it will play in the East next season as part of the NHL’s realignment plan.
“We’ve got that momentum,” Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said. “We want to keep it.”
