BLACKHAWKS, RED WINGS MEET IN GAME 7 FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 1965

NEW YORK (May 28, 2013) — For the first time in nearly half a century and just the third time in their 87-year rivalry, the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings will contest a Game 7 when the clubs decide their Western Conference Semifinal Wednesday night in Chicago (8 p.m., ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

The clubs last met in a Game 7 on April 15, 1965, when the Blackhawks posted a 4-2 win at Olympia Stadium in Detroit to capture their semifinal series. The Red Wings had eliminated the Blackhawks in Game 7 of the semifinals the previous year in Chicago, also by a 4-2 score.

The rosters for these two games featured a dozen future members of the Hockey Hall of Fame — seven for Detroit (Alex Delvecchio, Bill Gadsby, Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay, Marcel Pronovost, Terry Sawchuk and Norm Ullman) and five for Chicago (Phil Esposito, Glenn Hall, Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita and Pierre Pilote).
