Final Score: St. Louis 4, Chicago 3 (OT)

St. Louis, MO ( - Brent Seabrook's charging major for a check on Blues center David Backes led to Vladimir Tarasenko's tying goal with 6.4 seconds left in regulation, and Barret Jackman scored 5:50 into overtime to give St. Louis a 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals on Saturday. The Blues won the longest game in franchise history on Thursday in triple overtime and now have a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series heading into Monday's Game 3 in Chicago. Chris Porter and Kevin Shattenkirk also scored to give the Blues a 2-0 lead in the first period and Ryan Miller ended with 25 saves. Miller's shutout streak of 119 minutes and 27 seconds was snapped when Duncan Keith scored with 2:35 left in the second period to get the Blackhawks on the board. Seabrook and Michal Rozsival beat Miller 1:45 apart in the third period to give the Blackhawks the lead, but the defending Stanley Cup champions were done in by Seabrook's game misconduct with 4:51 left in regulation.
