Blackhawks Tue Oct 13 2009

Misery to mastery

After an absolutely brutal opening 10 minutes that saw Hawks goalie Cristobal Huet give up 3 goals in 53 seconds on only 5 shots, and backup Antti Niemi not fare much better in letting in 2 more, it'd be easy to write off last night's Blackhawks game as a lost cause.

But just when you think you've seen it all, here come the Hawks to match the largest comeback in NHL history with 5 goals of their own, before defenseman Brent Seabrook capped off the charge with the game-winner 26 seconds into overtime.

Check out full game highlights here but in the meantime...wow. After a first period that was absolutely maddening, the Madhouse on Madison lived up to its moniker Monday night.
