Drury tied the game at 1-1 on the power play early in the second period and the Blackhawks took a 2-1 advantage midway through the third on a wrist shot by Brandon Dubinsky.

Brent Seabrook, however, forced overtime with a power-play goal with 4:29 left in the third.

Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves to get the victory. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 19 shots for the Blackhawks. Five of Khabibulin's eight losses this season have come in overtime.
