"There's going to be games like that," Bickell said from the corner of the dressing room late Saturday night as he proudly sported his Western Conference Championship hat following Chicago's 4-3 double-overtime win over the Los Angeles Kings.
Chicago's biggest forward had an assist on Patrick Kane's first two goals and probably should have gotten one on the double-overtime winner that sent the Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup Final to face the Boston Bruins starting Wednesday at United Center (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).
However, Bickell also was guilty of icing the puck with 14.4 seconds left in regulation. That set up the faceoff in the Blackhawks' defensive zone that led to Mike Richards' game-tying goal with 9.4 seconds to go.
