Coyotes Vs. Blackhawks, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 1: Overtime Looms After Chicago Scores Last-Minute Goal

The Chicago Blackhawks pulled off a stunning comeback in the third period, scoring the game-tying goal with just seconds left to force overtime with the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night. The game is now tied up at 2-2 at the end of regulation, meaning that three of Thursday's four NHL playoff games will have gone to extra time.

After getting 15 shots on goal throughout the third period, the Blackhawks finally got a one past Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith with just 15 seconds left. Brent Seabrook scored the game-tying goal for Chicago, which pushes the game into overtime after it nearly seemed to be totally over.

Smith was in the midst of an impressive game when Seabrook finally broke the scoring spell with seconds left. Overtime should be fun after what went down at the end of the third period.
