Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - This could be the last time Chicago and Detroit meet in the playoffs for a while due to the new realignment plan. Thankfully, they're making the most of it.
Behind to a three-goal third period, the Chicago Blackhawks posted a 4-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 6 of this Western Conference semifinal.
Next season, these Original Six teams will be in separate conferences and this series appeared to be in the bag for Detroit after a 2-0 win in Game 4 gave the team a 3-1 lead in the series.
The Blackhawks, though, rebounded with a 4-1 win at home on Saturday and goals from Michal Handzus, Bryan Bickell and Michael Frolik in the third period on Monday forced a Game 7 that will take place in Chicago on Wednesday.
Marian Hossa also scored a goal for the Presidents' Trophy-winning Blackhawks, who got 35 saves from Corey Crawford.
Damien Brunner, Patrick Eaves and Joakim Andersson each scored a goal for the seventh-seeded Red Wings, who saw Jimmy Howard give up all four goals on 28 shots.
