LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Patrick Kane scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:45 to play, and the Chicago Blackhawks forced a decisive seventh game in the Western Conference finals with a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night.

Kane scored two goals and set up Duncan Keith's tying goal with 8:26 left in regulation for the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks, who avoided elimination for the second straight game.

Chicago blew a lead entering the third period on goals by Drew Doughty and Alec Martinez, but won it with a brilliant effort by the enigmatic Kane.

After Kane made the pass to set up Keith's tying goal, he ripped a long shot through traffic in front of Jonathan Quick for the winner.

Game 7 is in Chicago on Sunday.
