With one third-period goal on Monday night, Chicago Blackhawks forward Michael Frolik sunk the Detroit Red Wings to force a Game 7, while also making a little playoff history.
With one third-period goal on Monday night, Chicago Blackhawks forward Michael Frolik sunk the Detroit Red Wings to force a Game 7, while also making a little playoff history.

The Blackhawks were already leading Detroit 3-2 when Frolik was awarded a penalty shot at 9:43.

Frolik was hacked by Wings defenceman Carlo Colaiacovo, losing the puck in the process. He then froze Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard with a beautiful backhand to the glove side. Howard was clearly frustrated with the call, but Frolik's goal became the eventual game winner as the Wings did cut Chicago's advantage late in the game.

Frolik became the first player in NHL history to score two playoffs goals on penalty shots en route to Chicago's 4-3 win. He also turned the trick in 2011 against the Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference quarter-finals.
