Martinez’s OT Goal Lifts Kings into Stanley Cup Final

Martinez’s OT Goal Lifts Kings into Stanley Cup Final

Justin Heiman/Getty Images(CHICAGO, Ill.) -- The Los Angeles Kings trailed the Chicago Blackhawks 2-0 in the first period but battled back to force overtime in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. Less than six minutes into the extra frame, Alec Martinez scored, giving the Kings a 5-4 win and sending them to their second Stanley Cup Final in three seasons.

"We've battled back so many times this year and so many times in these playoffs, we said, 'Why not again today?'" said winger Justin Williams. "It was a total team effort, every single guy here giving everything they've got."

Williams tied the game at 2-2 in the first period and later assisted on the game-winner, giving him 14 career points in Game 7's, the most all-time. Los Angeles never led until Martinez's tally in overtime. The Blackhawks took a 3-2 lead into the first intermission thanks to Patrick Sharp and again led 4-3 after two periods, courtesy of Sharp's power play goal. Marion Gaborik knotted things up in the third with his 12th goal of the postseason.

The Kings will now face the New York Rangers, the team that traded Gaborik at the deadline in the 2012-13 season, in the Stanley Cup Final. Los Angeles won the title in 2012, their only championship in franchise history.

Corey Crawford made 27 saves in the loss, as the defending champs were ousted on home ice. 

Jonathan Quick stopped 37 shots, including one in the final seconds of regulation. Los Angeles improves to 7-0 in elimination games in the playoffs and become the first team to ever reach the Stanley Cup Final by winning three Game 7's. The Kings and Rangers play Game 1 on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

Kane Helps Chicago Force Game Seven

Kane Helps Chicago Force Game Seven

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Patrick Kane scored the game-winning goal with less than four minutes remaining in the third as Chicago forced a decisive Game Seven in the NHL's Western Conference Finals. Kane's second goal of the game gave the Blackhawks a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

"There's still not much room out there in this series," said Kane, who also assisted on Duncan Keith's game-tying tally. "Right now, you have to take advantage of your opportunities when you do get space."

Los Angeles took the lead after the first period after a goal from Dwight King late in the frame. The Blackhawks scored two consecutive goals less than three minutes into the second. Kane's first tally helped tie things up when, 1:37 later, Ben Smith gave Chicago their first lead of the game.

A frantic third period saw a combined four goals and two lead changes. Drew Doughty knotted up the score for the Kings before Alec Martinez scored on a power play goal with just over 12 minutes to play. That advantage would not hold long as Kane found Keith for the goal that made it 3-3 in the waning moments of regulation. 

Kane, last year's Conn Smythe winner, scored his second goal of the game five minutes later and ultimately gave Chicago the win. The Blackhawks have now come back from being down 3-1 in the series to force a decisive Game 7 to be play in Chicago on Sunday. 

Corey Crawford made 22 saves for Chicago while Jonathan Quick stopped 25 shots in the loss. The winner of Game 7 will face the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Final.

Handzus Nets Game Winner for Blackhawks in 2OT

Handzus Nets Game Winner for Blackhawks in 2OT

Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Michal Handzus fired a backhander past Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick 2:04 into the second overtime, to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 5-4 victory over the Kings Wednesday, in Game 5 of the NHL Western Conference Final.

The win keeps the Blackhawks alive in the best-of-seven series, which Los Angeles now leads three games to two.

"I want to help the team as much as I can," Handzus said. "I'm playing on the PK a lot. I'm not playing very well offensively. I'm glad I came through."

He was able to because of teammate Brandon Saad, whose pass set up the winning goal. Saad finished the game with a goal and two assists.

"Personally, I thought Saader was the best player on the ice tonight," said Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane, who had four assists in the win. "He was bringing so much speed and puck protection."

The Blackhawks were down 4-3 in the third period before Ben Smith scored at the 1:17 mark. 

Jonathan Quick made 40 saves in the loss while Corey Crawford had 40 saves in the win.

Game 6 is Friday in Los Angeles. The puck is scheduled to drop at 9 p.m. Eastern.

Early Outburst Leads Kings to 3-1 Series Lead

Early Outburst Leads Kings to 3-1 Series Lead

Harry How/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) -- After coming from behind in each of the last two games, Los Angeles scored four straight goals to beat Chicago 5-2 and take a 3-1 series lead Monday night. The Kings, who rallied from 3-0 and 3-1 deficits in their previous matchups, are now one win away from reaching the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in three years.

Los Angeles scored three goals in the first period, including power play goals from Jake Muzzin and Dustin Brown to take control over the defending Stanley Cup champions. Drew Doughty then added a fourth goal to the barrage just under 13 minutes into the second frame.

"To come into every game with that confidence, to have that mojo that you can win every game, that's the difference," said Marion Gaborik, who scored his 10th goal of the playoffs in the first. "It's great to come to a team like this and be part of a winning culture."

The Blackhawks scored two goals, closing the gap to 4-2 halfway through the third, but Jonathan Quick was strong in net and Tanner Pearson added an empty-net goal late to seal the win. Quick finished with 22 saves in the game while four players had multi-point efforts.

Los Angeles defeated the Blackhawks in the Western Conference Finals back in 2012 before winning their only Stanley Cup trophy. Game 5 will be played Wednesday in Chicago.

Carter’s Hat Trick Helps Kings Even Series with Blackhawks

Carter’s Hat Trick Helps Kings Even Series with Blackhawks

Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Another day, another comeback playoff win for the Los Angeles Kings.

Jeff Carter netted a hat trick as the Kings rallied to defeat the Chicago Blackhawks 6-2 on Wednesday night to even the NHL Western Conference final at a game apiece.

Tyler Toffoli and Jake Muzzin each added goals in the Kings' five-goal third period to help Los Angeles become the first road team to win in Chicago this postseason.

The Blackhawks jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but Carter helped ensure it would go on to be a difficult night for the defending Stanley Cup champions.

"Just sticking with what we need to do," Carter said. "You know, we got a good group of leaders in our room. We've been through comebacks and whatnot a lot lately. Obviously, not something we want to do. But we stick with it, grind it out, get the job done."

Jonathan Quick made 23 saves for the Kings, including a stop on Brent Seabrook with the Blackhawks going for a 3-0 lead in the second period.

Nick Leddy and Ben Smith scored goals for the Blackhawks, who won 3-1 in Game 1.

Game 3 of the best-of-seven series will be played on Saturday night in Los Angeles.

Crawford Leads Blackhawks to 1-0 Series Lead

Crawford Leads Blackhawks to 1-0 Series Lead

Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images(CHICAGO, Ill.) -- Duncan Keith scored the go-ahead goal twelve minutes into the second period, and Corey Crawford made 25 saves as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated Los Angeles, 3-1 on Sunday. The win gave the defending champs a 1-0 series lead. 

"I think (he) just keeps getting better and better," said teammate Jonathan Toews. "As a team we have to give raising our level of play as the stage gets bigger and bigger. I think if anyone is doing that, it's (him)."

The Chicago netminder leads the NHL with a 1.90 goals against average and a .933 save percentage during the postseason. Crawford has allowed just one goal in each of his last three games.

Chicago opened the scoring on Brandon Saad's power play goal late in the first and looked to have a 2-0 lead after the puck trickled into the back of the net off the skate of Kings' defenseman Slava Voynov. However, upon video review, officials ruled that Toews made incidental contact with goalkeeper Jonathan Quick and waved off the goal.

That allowed Tyler Toffoli a chance to things up five minutes into the second period. As LA looked to take a lead, Crawford came up with multiple big saves before Keith netted his third of the playoffs. Toews would add another goal in the third to give the Blackhawks a two-goal advantage.

Quick made just 17 saves in the loss, even though his team outshot the Hawks 26-20. Meanwhile, the Blackhawks improved to 7-0 at home in the playoffs. Game 2 is set for Wednesday night in Chicago.

Kane’s OT Goal Vaults Blackhawks into Western Conference Finals

Kane’s OT Goal Vaults Blackhawks into Western Conference Finals

Bruce Kluckhohn/National Hockey League/Getty Images(ST. PAUL, Minn.) --  Patrick Kane lives for the dramatic moments.

Kane scored the game-winning goal 9:42 into overtime as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Minnesota Wild 2-1 in Game 6 on Tuesday night to advance to the Western Conference finals.

"He's a special player, and guys have that instinct, have that knack of finding pucks, wanting to be out there, wanting to score," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said.

Kris Versteeg scored 1:58 into the first period to set the tone for Chicago.  Corey Crawford made 34 saves, but in the end, the story was all about Kane's heroics.

"We probably didn't play our best tonight, but just finding a way to win is something this team has done for many years now," Kane said. The 25-year-old now has four playoff overtime game-winning goals in his career.

Erik Haula scored a goal during the second period to tie the game at 1, but it wasn't enough as the Wild were eliminated from the playoffs.

"We really believe that we were capable of doing more than just winning this game," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. "Our guys did everything that we asked and they laid it on the line, and that's what hurts."

The Blackhawks will face either the Anaheim Ducks or the Los Angeles Kings in the next round.
