Pressure building on Chicago
Zone time is a killer. The Red Wings keep it in better than most and the Blackhawks just found out the hard way.
Brian Rafalski kept the puck in at the right point, fed it into the slot to Todd Bertuzzi, who slotted it over to Danny Cleary for a one-timer that beat Crawford. The Red Wings are back up 4-2 with 11:16 to play in regulation now.
The building had some serious jump after Seabrook scored to make it 3-2. The Blackhawks had some jump, too, as they kept the pressure on. However, the Red Wings had a great counterattack and with that in-zone time they were able to deal the Hawks playoff chances a serious blow.
The Blackhawks are barely 11 minutes away from needing Minnesota to do something good against Dallas tonight.
