CHICAGO (AP) -- For two consecutive games, the Chicago Blackhawks trailed the Phoenix Coyotes in the final stages of regulation and pulled goalie Corey Crawford for a late desperation surge with six attackers.
Both times it worked in the opening-round playoff series that is now tied at 1-1.
Chicago's Brent Seabrook scored with 14.2 seconds to go in Game 1 to even it up before Phoenix pulled out a 3-2 overtime victory. On Saturday night, Patrick Sharp re-directed a shot into the goal with 5.5 seconds left to force overtime and this time the Blackhawks prevailed 4-3 on an extra-period game-winner by Bryan Bickell.
Now it's on to the United Center for Games 3 and 4, Tuesday and Thursday respectively.
