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. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

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. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

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.

Kings Rally Again to Upend Blackhawks

Kings Rally Again to Upend Blackhawks Jeff Gross/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Jonathan Toews scored twice in the first period, but the Los Angeles Kings found a way to rally again to beat Chicago, 4-3, in Game 3 of their Western Conference Final. The Kings now lead the best-of-seven series two games to one. Los Angeles trailed 2-0 in Game 2, but reeled off six straight goals to rout the Blackhawks and tie up the series. On Saturday, a similar effort was turned in after LA found themselves trailing 2-1 after on period. Toews opened the scoring just over five minutes in before Slava Voynov tied it up less than a minute later. Another Toews tally gave Chicago the lead back heading in to the second period. However, the Kings scored three unanswered goals to gain a 4-2 lead midway through the third. Jeff Carter knotted the score at 2-2 12 minutes into the second. He then assisted on the go-ahead goal by Tyler Toffoli six minutes later. "I'm having so much fun with these guys," said Toffoli, who notched his sixth goal of the postseason. "Getting to play with a guy like Carter is a great opportunity." Drew Doughty would put the game out of reach with his second goal of the playoffs just over halfway through the third. The Blackhawks went more than 46 minutes of playing time without a goal after Toews made it 2-1 in the first. Patrick Sharp scored a meaningless goal with five seconds to play for the final score line.  Jonathan Quick made 24 saves for the Kings while Corey Crawford stopped 28 shots in a loss. Game 4 is Monday night in California. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

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. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio    

Kings Rout Anaheim in Game Seven

Kings Rout Anaheim in Game Seven Jeff Gross/Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) -- Justin Williams scored four and a half minutes in to the start of Game Seven and the Los Angeles Kings never looked back. Six different players scored as the Kings polished off the Anaheim Ducks 6-2 to advance to their third straight Western Conference Finals. "I think we just focused on trying to have a good start," said Kings head coach Darryl Sutter. "If you score the first goal it's been an advantage in this series." So far in the NHL Playoffs, the team that scores first has won 25 of 26 games. Los Angeles has also won six straight games this postseason when facing elimination, including rallying from down 3-0 in their opening round series with San Jose. The Kings jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the first period and added another goal thanks to Anze Kopitar just two minutes into the second. That chased rookie goalkeeper John Gibson but a change in net did not deter Los Angeles. Marion Gaborik would eventually score on Jonas Hiller to make the score 5-0 before Anaheim finally got on the board thanks to Kyle Palmieri. Jonathan Quick allowed just two goals and made 25 saves in the win. Los Angeles will face the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks for the second consecutive season. The Kings hoisted the Stanley Cup in 2012. Friday's game also marked the end of the career of Anaheim's Teemu Selanne. Affectionately known as "The Finnish Flash", Selanne played 15 of his 21 season with the Ducks and helped bring the franchise its only championship in 2007. Both teams stayed on the ice following the game as fans in Anaheim saluted the soon-to-be retired forward. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

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.

Smith-Pelly Scores Twice to Lead Ducks to Victory, Take 3-2 Series Lead

Smith-Pelly Scores Twice to Lead Ducks to Victory, Take 3-2 Series Lead Debora Robinson/NHLI via Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) -- Devante Smith-Pelly scored two goals to help lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings Monday, in Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinal. Anaheim has now won three in a row and has a 3-2 series lead. The game was tied at a goal apiece early in the second period when the 21-year-old Smith-Pelly scored two times in less than two minutes. "We're just having a lot of fun," Smith-Pelly said. "This is what you dream about, playing in the playoffs." The Ducks would add one more to take a 4-1 lead, but Kings winger Marian Gaborik scored two goals to whittle Anaheim's lead to one with 5:48 remaining. Ducks rookie goaltender John Gibson refused to let the Kings score from there finishing the night with 39 saves. "We were talking about how we have to get to Gibson, and if we do, things are happening," Gaborik said. "If we get shots through and try to go to the net, rebounds are there, and we got some chances. We have to keep doing that and we have to clean a lot of stuff up. We're coming home. We're confident we can win and come back here." That chance will come Wednesday night. The puck is set to drop in Los Angeles at 9:30 p.m. Eastern. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
