NHL Playoff Memories: Jackman an unlikely OT hero for Blues

Hockey Week in America highlights the best playoff rivalries in recent memory.

Hockey Week in America continues Tuesday with some notable playoff rivalries. As they marched to the 2014 Western Conference Final, the Blackhawks had to go through the rival Blues first.

Their Round 1 series began with a triple-OT thriller that ended after an Alexander Steen goal. The overtime fun didn’t stop there. Game 2 needed extra hockey after Vladimir Tarasenko tied the score at three with seven seconds to play.

The unlikely hero in overtime? That would be Barret Jackman, who scored only his second career playoff goal nearly six minutes into the period.

You can catch Game 2 and more memorable playoff matchups Tuesday night on NBCSN beginning at 9 p.m. ET.

• Blackhawks vs. Blues (2014 Round 1, Game 2) – 9 p.m. ET
• N.Y. Rangers vs. Devils (2012 Eastern Conference Final, Game 6) – 11 p.m. ET
• Penguins vs. Flyers (2012 Round 1, Game 3) – 1 a.m.
