“I think it was a great game for the fans,” said Marian Gaborik who scored the two most crucial goals in the game. “You could hear the atmosphere was unbelievable, and like I said, we never quit. That team over there on the other side, that’s a great team. We came up short in their building, and we’re happy we were able to redeem ourselves and get two points in this building and come back.”
The Blackhawks had a 2-0 lead up until the third period with a power play goal from Patrick Kane in the first and an even strength goal from Niklas Hjalmarsson in the second period.
Jeff Carter scored less than a minute into the third period with the assists credited to Milan Lucic and Christian Ehrhoff. At 14:05 Gaborik tied the game 2-2 to send it to overtime, with the assist credited to Anze Kopitar.
“We never thought that we weren’t going to win,” Gaborik said. “There was a no-quit atmosphere here and attitude, and we knew we could come back.”Read more... Join the Conversation...
