With all the talent the Chicago Blackhawks have on their roster, Bryan Bickell probably isn't the first player you would think of when it comes to overtime game-winners in the playoffs.

But he was the guy that stepped up in Game 1 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series against Minnesota to give the Blackhawks a 2-1 win and a 1-0 lead in the series.

What a pass off the glass by Johnny Oduya. And then Bickell celebrated by getting his stick stuck in the glass.

The Blackhawks played well on Tuesday, perhaps better than the 2-1 score would indicate, but Josh Harding gave Minnesota a brilliant performance to keep the Wild in the game. Harding unexpectedly received the start less than an hour before the game after Minnesota's regular starter, Niklas Backstrom, was injured during warmups.
