Brent Seabrook thinks how Chicago starts in Game 5 will be a big factor in determining their finish.

"We've got to come out with a good effort off the start," Seabrook said. "I think our starts have been key. When we start well, we usually give ourselves a chance to have a good game and get a win. That's going to be tomorrow's theme, I'm sure: getting off to a good start and trying to do some good things in a hostile building in Anaheim." Chicago is 7-1 in the playoffs when they score first and 3-3 when they surrender the opening marker. The Blackhawks are also 5-0 when leading through 20 minutes.

Brent Seabrook scored a goal in Saturday's 5-4 double overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks.

The two teams combined for five goals in what was a crazy third period. Seabrook scored at the 7:38 mark of the third frame to extend the Hawks' lead to 3-1, but Anaheim responded quickly by scoring three goals in 37 seconds to take a 4-3 lead. The Hawks eventually tied the game on a goal by Patrick Kane, and Antoine Vermette scored the game-winner in the second period of overtime. The 30-year-old has four goals and seven points in 14 games.

Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal is reporting that the Oilers are interested in Brent Seabrook at the end of the season.

The Oilers are in desperate need of a top defenseman and Seabrook could fit the bill perfectly as he has only one season left on his contract and the Blackhawks will once again be up against it as far as the salary cap is concerned. Matheson also writes that the Oilers are kicking the tires in regards to Dion Phaneuf but their interest is not nearly as strong as it will be with Seabrook.

Brent Seabrook is an underrated piece of the Chicago Blackhawks roster.

"It’s hard to say why [he hasn’t gotten more recognition]," Jonathan Toews said. "I guess maybe (Duncan Keith) is the one getting most of the attention offensively, for the most part, but I think Seabs has really proven what he can do, what he can bring on both sides of the puck. We’ve always known it in this locker room." Seabrook has seven goals and 22 points in 44 games this season.

Brent Seabrook has arguably been the best Chicago Blackhawk of late.

He has been amazing in the defensive zone which, according to Chicago coach Joel Quenneville has led to success offensively. With six points in his last five games, Seabrook is certainly on a roll. "(Seabrook) was probably the one guy who turned it around," said Quenneville, referring to Saturday night's 5-2 win over Colorado. "I think the offense is coming because he’s been defending so well." If you have Seabrook on your fantsay roster, enjoy.
