The picture above shows two of the most respected players in the National Hockey League after a hard fought series, and final game 5 that ended the Los Angeles Kings season by the hands of Patrick Kane (left), also ending the possibility of a repeat Stanley Cup Champion for the first time since Scotty Bowman lead the Detroit Red Wings to back-to-back wins in ’97 and ’98. The Chicago Blackhawks took the best of 7 series in just 5 games, but the Kings did put up a strong fight throughout the series. Blackhawks took an early 2-0 lead in the first with the first goal being a soft shot from the blue line that somehow found it’s way through Jonathan Quick’s five hole. Dwight King was able to cut the lead down in the second with a rebound goal of his own, his second of the playoffs. Anze Kopitar (above right) tied was only the beginning of the drama of the game. With just under four minutes left in the game, Patrick Kane found the back of the net, and the Kings season looked to be over alr...

Patrick Kane greatest hits collection: photos

The Chicago Blackhawks are in the Stanley Cup Final versus the Boston Bruins. Time for some Patrick Kane photos. Kaner may have turned the corner in terms of his behavior. At least publicly.

Travis Yost: Chicago is Not Pittsburgh

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Patrick Kane's double-overtime goal guaranteed that this year's Stanley Cup Final would feature two of the best teams in the National Hockey League, and a ratings bonanza.

NHL Playoff Observations -- Cup Runneth Over
