They weren't going to take away this goal.

Of the more than 22,000 people that were in the United Center on Wednesday night the happiest person after Brent Seabrook's overtime goal had to be referee Stephen Walkom, if for no other reason than it guaranteed that his controversial call at the end of regulation would not become one of the most infamous calls in NHL history.

It'll still be discussed, analyzed, and scrutinized, but not to the degree it would have been had the Red Wings found a way to win in overtime.

In the end the Blackhawks ended up getting the win thanks to this goal from Seabrook, and there really wasn't much Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard could have done as the shot appeared to be deflected by defenseman Niklas Kronwall as he attempted to block the shot.
