Brent Seabrook D CHI Dec 11 '78
Brent Seabrook's goal in overtime kept the Blackhawks' record-breaking streak alive as they edged the Blue Jackets 4-3 Friday night at the United Center to remain without a regulation loss this season.
At 18-0-3, the Hawks keep piling up the points, securing 39 of a possible 42 this season. Seabrook took a pass from Jonathan Toews three minutes, 23 seconds into overtime and beat Blue Jackets goaltender Steve Mason for the game-winner. "(Toews) is good - he's a hell of a player," Seabrook said, giving credit to his captain. "He usually likes to shoot low and I think (Columbus goaltender Steve) Mason was probably thinking he was going to shoot it. (Toews) had a slug defenseman (in me) going down on the off side so he made a great pass. I don't think the Blue Jackets defenseman, Mason or I expected it to come. Somehow he saw me and made a great pass. He didn't look at me once and I didn't yell. He's pretty good in those situations so I just let him do his thing. I don't think I shot the puck, it was such a hard pass it hit my stick and just bounced in."
