Blackhawks set to get Seabrook back, can finish off first-round series against Blues at home

ST. LOUIS - The Chicago Blackhawks have won three straight in their playoff series against the St. Louis Blues while Brent Seabrook served his suspension.

The Blues need their key trade deadline pickup, goalie Ryan Miller, to play well to help keep their season alive.

Jonathan Toews' breakaway goal in overtime of Game 5 gave the Blackhawks a 3-2 series lead.

The defending Stanley Cup champions can wrap it up at home on Sunday in Chicago with Seabrook back in the lineup.

The Blues acquired Miller from Buffalo as the piece that would drive a deep playoff run.

Coach Ken Hitchcock said Miller has played "great," overall, but if the Blues are to bring the series back to St. Louis for a Game 7 Tuesday, Miller has to find a way to shut down the Blackhawks.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
