Blackhawks win Game 4, series tied 2-2 – with highlights


There are must-wins, and there are must-wins, and the Chicago Blackhawks encountered the latter in the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday.

Beat the Bruins, and the Hawks recapture home ice advantage while making the series a best-of-3. Lose, and it was another 3-1 series deficit, looking even more cavernous than the one the Hawks stared down two rounds earlier.

“We’re presenting this like a Game 7,” Hawks winger Bryan Bickell said before the game.

“If we get the win, we’ll be 2-2 going back home with momentum and home ice. Or it could be 3-1. I think it’s do or die. This is the biggest game in a lot of guys’ lives.”

A big blast from Brent Seabrook ended a wild game that spilled into yet another overtime, with the Hawks winning 6-5 in Game 4 and tying the Stanley Cup Final at 2-2.

Game 5 is Saturday night.  Coverage begins after Cubs baseball, at about 6:20 p.m., with puck drop shortly after 7. Plus, join us for Morning Skate Live at 10:30 a.m. on
