The play was exactly what has made the Blackhawks successful lately.

Defenseman Brent Seabrook carried the puck deep into the Edmonton Oilers' zone, and it looked like another scoring chance courtesy of the Hawks' blue line.

But Seabrook fell and went legs-first into the boards. It didn't sound or look good at all, and the Hawks are already without center Dave Bolland, who is recovering from a foot injury.

"Obviously, there's a void with all the quality ice time [Seabrook plays] in all situations," coach Joel Quenneville said. "He absorbs those types of minutes. You appreciate what he provides you."
