Los Angeles Kings
San Jose Sharks
The Blackhawks snapped the Kings’ treasured 15-game home ice winning streak Thursday and with that, all but stole their chances of keeping the Stanley Cup at home.
Down 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals, the Kings will have to play a perfect game in Chicago just to stay alive.Los Angeles seemed off to a good start, netted the critical first goal of the game, but Chicago answered back and overtook them 3-2 early in the final period. The defending champions never recovered.
“It as a tough one to lose tonight but we knew we were going to have to win at least one in their rink so we’re looking forward to the next challenge,” said Kings defenseman Drew Doughty postgame. “It’s a big game Saturday night and it’s a must-win, obviously.”
Slava Voynov gave the Los Angeles crowd an early boost, getting the puck in the high slot and firing it past Corey Crawford to put his team up 1-0 at 3:28 in the first period. Ten minutes later, Bryan Bickell, who scored Chicago’s only goal in Game 3, eve...

“I meant to give him a tap but not where I got him,” Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith said in his postgame interview after Game 3. “I feel bad…it was an accident.”

In a game whose goals were mostly of the "strange and/or fluky bounce" variety, the Chicago Blackhawks put on an absolute defensive clinic sans Duncan Keith, just dismantling the Los Angeles Kings in the 3rd period and emerging with a 3-2 win and 3-1 series lead thanks to a Marian Hossa goal and some incredibly stifling--Kings-like--defensive play.
And yes, it is likely...
from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,
Kane isn't alone in struggling to light the lamp for the Blackhawks. Captain Jonathan Toews is as complete a player as anybody in the NHL, but he has just one playoff goal this year.
Both are continuing a trend. Since he netted the Stanley Cup-clincher in 2010, Kane has three goals in his last 28 playoff games. Toews has four goals...

This 5-year-old is clearly a Los Angeles Kings diehard and prior to Game 3 against the Chicago Blackhawks, he named every single player on the roster based off of their jersey number in front of a sellout crowd. Look out Pierre McGuire, in no time this kid will be taking your job between the glass.
