Brent Seabrook scored 26 seconds into overtime as the Chicago Blackhawks matched the biggest comeback in NHL history to rally from a five-goal deficit and beat the Calgary Flames 6-5 on Monday.
Chicago fell behind 5-0 in the first period before overtaking the Flames, the team they knocked out of the playoffs in the first round in April.
By rallying from five goals down, the Blackhawks tied the NHL record for biggest deficit overcome, the Elias Sports Bureau said.
Seabrook gathered the puck and shot it past Miikka Kiprusoff in the overtime and was mobbed by his teammates as the crowd at the United Center rocked.
AVALANCHE 4, BRUINS 3
At Boston, David Jones scored a short-handed goal to lift Colorado over Boston.
Marek Svatos had a tiebreaking, power-play goal midway into the second period. Milan Hejduk and Scott Hannan also scored for the Avalanche.
Craig Anderson made 29 saves for Colorado.
Michael Ryder, Mark Recchi and Blake Wheeler each scored for Boston, which closed its season-opening homestand.
KINGS 2, ISLANDERS 1
At Uniondale, New York, Jon Quick made 28 saves, and Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty scored.
Quick, who has played every minute in the Kings’ first five games of the season, was rarely tested. Los Angeles has won four straight following a season-opening, 6-3 loss to Phoenix. Quick fell 1:55 short of his fifth NHL shutout when Matt Moulson scored his second goal of the season.
New York is still seeking its first win after starting the season with three overtime losses, two by shootout. Martin Biron made 20 saves and is one win away from 200 in the NHL.
John Tavares, the top pick in this year’s draft by the Islanders, failed to earn a point for the first time in his NHL career after two goals and three assists in his first three.
In other NHL games it was:
• Rangers 7, Maple Leafs 2
• Devils 3, Capitals 2, SO
• Penguins 4, Senators 1
• Lightning 3, Panthers 2
• Coyotoes 1, Sharks 0, SO

Ronnie O’Sullivan delivered a scathing attack on the next generation of snooker players after he made the quarter-finals of the World Snooker Championship on Sunday, ending Chinese star Ding Junhui’s world championship dream. The mercurial 44-year-old Englishman won an enthralling high-quality second-round encounter 13-10 to set up a quarter-final clash with three-time champion Mark Williams. When asked by the BBC whether he thought he would remain at the top of the game for this long, the Briton, who turned professional in 1992, said the poor quality of younger players had secured his position and that something drastic would have to happen
Max Verstappen informed his Red Bull team that he would not be driving “like a grandma” in Formula One’s 70th Anniversary Grand Prix on Sunday — and he was as good as his word.

FULL GAME: Henry Sosa pitched nine innings for the Guardians, allowing only six hits all night, while the Monkeys’ offense were also shut out of their game Outfielder Lin An-ko carried a big bat this week — before his Uni-President Lions ran into the Fubon Guardians last night — blasting four home runs, including a grand slam as his side won four games in a row and moved into second on the CPBL table. However, the Lions could not sustain their super-charged offense for the whole week, as they were shut out 4-0 by the Guardians in New Taipei City. Fubon’s rookie catcher, Jhang Jin-de, took a page from Lin’s playbook. With two men on, Jhang smacked a three-run homer in the sixth inning. Henry Sosa of the Dominican Republic
