Highlights: Blackhawks lose Game 1 in triple OT
By Chris Kuc
Buckle up, Blackhawks fans, this has the makings of some kind of thrill ride.
Trailing by a goal late to the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Blues rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Hawks in triple overtime in Game 1 of the first round of the playoffs Thursday night at Scottrade Center.
The Hawks were within 1 minute, 45 seconds of seizing home-ice advantage in the best-of-seven series when Jaden Schwartz scored to tie it up and Alexander Steen eventually notched the game-winner :26 into the third OT to help the Blues snap a six-game losing skid that ended the regular season.
