Bickell's OT goal evens series

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- For the second consecutive game the Blackhawks found a late score and new life in overtime. And this time, they took advantage of it.

Patrick Sharp tipped in a Brent Seabrook shot with 5.5 seconds remaining in regulation, and Bryan Bickell scored midway through overtime as the Blackhawks beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 in Game 2 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series on Saturday night.

The Blackhawks got another late goal to get to overtime, and overcame some early penalties -- good and very questionable -- to rally.

Andrew Shaw was called for charging and assessed a game misconduct after his collision with goaltender Mike Smith in the second period. Smith was down on the ice for several moments, seemingly injured. But Smith then popped up and finished the game. Jonathan Toews was also called for an inexplicable goaltending interference call on Smith, who was way out of the net at the time. The Coyotes came through with power-play goals on both.

White Sox may have to deal with Francisco Lindor for a while, according to unlikely source

White Sox may have to deal with Francisco Lindor for a while, according to unlikely source

Sources have confirmed that kids really do say the darndest things. 

In a spring training game Sunday afternoon, 6-year-old Brody Chernoff, son of Indians general manager Mike Chernoff, spilled the beans on his dad's prospective moves. Goated by announcer Todd Hamilton, Brody said that his dad was trying to keep Lindor in Cleveland for seven more years.

On one hand, Brody's honesty rivals a young Abraham Lincoln. Not even Adrian Wojnarowski could cultivate a source so honest and to the point. On the other, his dad probably is a little shocked that contract offer leaks are coming from his own family. 

Either way, though, hearing that Lindor may be in Cleveland for a while is bad news for the White Sox. The 23-year-old stud shortstop has hit over .300 in his first two big-league seasons. So definitely not someone you want to have in your division for years to come. Oh, plus he's absolutely nasty with the leather. 

Cubs fans know all about Lindor's talents, too. The shortstop hit .296 in his first World Series and was almost a key reason the Indians captured the crown. Almost!

Watch the hilarious exchange in the video above.
