Brent Seabrook scored one minute into the third overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 victory at 1:17 a.m. Wednesday at the United Center, giving them a commanding 3-1 lead in the Western Conference quarterfinals against the Nashville Predators.

It's the third straight spring the Hawks have played a triple-overtime game. Scott Darling stopped 50 shots on the night and improved to a perfect 43 for 43 in 68:48 of ice time in overtime. And during the postgame interview with Darling, we all learned what music Mike Riberio listens to.

Three down, 13 to go for the Hawks.
