ST. LOUIS — Doug Wickenheiser climaxed a furious St. Louis comeback with a rebound goal 7 1/2 minutes into overtime to give the Blues a 6-5 victory over the Calgary Flames Monday night, forcing a decisive seventh game in their National Hockey League playoff series.
Wickenheiser's goal, his second of the night, tied the Campbell Conference final at three games apiece and sent the teams back to Calgary for Game 7 Wednesday night.
The winner will play the Montreal Canadiens in the Stanley Cup finals starting Friday night.
Trailing 4-1 early in the final period, St. Louis awakened with 14 minutes to play when Wickenheiser scored his first goal on a 35-foot slapshot past Calgary goaltender Mike Vernon.
Former Blue Joe Mullen answered that at 7:04 with a high blast from 30 feet, but Brian Sutter rebounded Greg Paslawski's blocked shot past Vernon only 64 seconds later to cut Calgary's lead to 5-3.
