Niederreiter's OT Goal Vaults Wild into Second Round 

Karl Gehring/Denver Post/Getty Images(DENVER) -- The Minnesota Wild refused to back down, and now they are moving on to the Western Conference semifinals.

Nino Niederreiter scored his second goal of the game in overtime, giving the Wild a thrilling 5-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche in Game 7 on Wednesday night.

"An unbelievable feeling," said Niederreiter. "I think our heart made the difference tonight."

With the Wild trailing 4-3 late in the third period, Jared Spurgeon fired the puck over Semyon Varlamov's shoulder to tie things up. 

The Avalanche won 52 games this season and returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2010.  The future is bright in Denver, but the team fell just one goal shy of advancing to the next round.

"The toughest part is to not come back tomorrow and be ready for Chicago," first-year coach Patrick Roy said. "We believe in ourselves and it's hard to see that it's over.

"I'm sure tomorrow is going to hurt more thinking it's over, because we still have the emotion of the game."

The Wild captured their first playoff series victory since 2003, and became the 1st team in NHL history to win a Game 7 after scoring 4 game-tying goals.  Up next for Minnesota, a meeting with the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks in the second round.

Blackhawks Score Four in the 3rd to Blast Blues Out of the Playoffs

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- The Chicago Blackhawks scored four fourth period goals to blast the St. Louis Blues 5-1 Sunday and win the best-of-seven first-round series in six games. 

The lost the first two games of the series before rattling off four-straight victories. 

"It was one play here, one play there," Blues captain David Backes said. "But it was on our stick and we needed to get the job done. We didn't get it done and we're going home too early."

In this game, the score was tied 1-1 heading into the third period, but Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp both scored in the opening 2:01 of the period to give the Hawks the lead for good. 

"They (Blues) were dominating the first 40 minutes here and we came back with maybe the best period of the year," coach Joel Quenneville said.

Corey Crawford continued his solid play making 35 saves in the win. 

Chicago now awaits the winner of the Colorado/Minnesota series.

Kane Helps Blackhawks Even Series with St. Louis

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images (CHICAGO, Ill.) -- Patrick Kane scored a little more than halfway through the first overtime session to give Chicago a 4-3 win over St. Louis in Game 4 of their Western Conference playoffs matchup. The Blackhawks dropped the first two games of the series but have rallied to win each of the last two.

"Every game feels like I've gotten a little bit better," said Kane who missed the last 12 games of the regular season with a leg injury. "Whether it's timing or getting used to playing in the playoffs again, whatever it may be, just try to keep getting better and better and use these games to my advantage."

After a scoreless first period, Kane helped Chicago take what looked to be a commanding lead in the second. Andrew Shaw opened the scoring on a power play goal before Kane made it 2-0 a few minutes later. The Blues would rally tough: Vladimir Tarasenko and Maxim Lapierre reeled off consecutive goals in the final 1:09 of the frame to knot things up.

Tarasenko added a second goal in the third to give St. Louis the lead. Less than for minutes later, Bryan Bickell scored his first goal of the postseason to tie the game at 3-3 and eventually send the game into overtime.

Last year's Conn Smythe Trophy winner ripped a shot off the crossbar before eventually scoring the game winner with a wrister that beat Ryan Miller.

The series now shifts back to St. Louis for Game 5 on Friday night.

Blackhawks Defenseman Brent Seabrook Suspended Three Games 

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook has been suspended three games by the NHL Department of Player Safety on Sunday.

The suspension came down after Seabrook laid a hit on St. Louis Blues forward David Backes during Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round series.  His right elbow and shoulder connected with Backes' head with less than five minutes remaining in the third period.  Backes was then thrown into the boards and onto the floor.

Seabrook received a five-minute major penalty for charging and a game misconduct.  He had a phone hearing with the league Sunday morning.

After the game, Seabrook apologized and expressed his concern for Backes.

"I was just trying to make a play on Backes," Seabrook said. "I thought the puck was there. I was on [Alexander] Steen. I was just coming down the wall and I just tried to finish my hit.

"I feel bad seeing a guy like that on the ice. I've been there myself, and I'm not trying to target his head. I'm not trying to do anything like that. It doesn't feel good to see a player like that lying there like that, and knowing that I hit him. It wasn't my intent. I thought it was a hit. It's a physical series, hits have been laid like that from both sides the whole series, so we'll see what happens."

The Blues lead the Blackhawks 2-0 with Game 3 set for Monday night in Chicago.

Blues Tie Game 2 Late Before Downing Hawks in OT

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- For the second straight game the St. Louis Blues snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.

Blues winger Vladimir Taresenko's power play goal with 6.4 seconds left in regulation tied the game, and Barret Jackman scored the game-winner in overtime as the Blues top the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 Saturday, in Game 2 of their first round playoff series.

St. Louis now leads the series 2-0.

Late in the third period, Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook hammered St. Louis center David Backes in the head with his right elbow. The incident left Backes knocked out on the ice and sent Seabrook to the dressing room with a game misconduct. Seabrook also received a five minute major for the hit. Backes eventually was helped off the ice and into the dressing room, from which he did not return.

While the hit looked bad, Seabrook says it wasn't intentional.

"I feel bad seeing a guy like that on the ice," Seabrook said. "I've been there myself. I wasn't trying to target his head or do anything like that."

Either way the incident gave the Blues a 6-on-4 late in the third when Taresenko found the back of the Blackhawks' net.

In overtime, Jackman slapped a puck through traffic that eventually trickled past Corey Crawford for the win.

"We were taking some big hits and kept our composure," Jackman said. "And in the end, one squeaks in."

This is the second-straight game the Blues won late. In Game 1, St. Louis scored the tying goal with less than two minutes to go in regulation before winning in triple overtime.

The series now shifts to Chicago Monday night. The puck is scheduled to drop at 8:30PM ET.

Blackhawks Forward Marian Hossa to Miss 2-3 Weeks 

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(CHICAGO) --  Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa will be sidelined 2-3 weeks with an upper-body injury, head coach Joel Quenneville said Monday.

Hossa was injured during the first period of last Saturday's win over the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field.

"There's going to be some quality ice time shared amongst the guys," Quenneville said. "I thought [Brandon Saad] did a real good job being put up on that line there as the game progressed the other day. We'll probably put him there. We'll get Peter [Regin] back in the lineup, and we could always put [Andrew] Shaw on the right. We'll see what happens."

In 57 games this season for the Blackhawks, Hossa has tallied 24 goals and 26 assists.
