After Brent Seabrook knocked Blues captain David Backes out of the game with a high hit, everything changed after what had been a dominant third period by the Chicago Blackhawks. Seabrook got a five-minute major that would span the rest of regulation and the Blues needed almost every second of it to make it hurt.

Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko scored with 6.4 seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game, 3-3. Up to that point, St. Louis had trouble generating quality chances despite the man advantage, but Tarasenko’s perfectly-placed shot erased any worry and helped the Blues avenge their captain in the best way possible.

This series has been full of excitement, goals and perhaps most of all, drama. This is what the Stanley Cup Playoffs are all about.
