Now it's a series: Blackhawks regroup for Game 3 after series-evening rally by LA Kings

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - After Chicago's recent mastery of the Los Angeles Kings completely came apart in one crazy period, the Blackhawks are headed to the West Coast to figure out how to get it back.

When the teams return to the ice on Saturday night for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, the Kings hope to build on their five-goal third period in a 6-2 victory on Wednesday night.

Until Game 2, Chicago had beaten the Kings six straight times and in nine of the clubs' last 10 meetings dating back to last season's conference finals.

The Blackhawks had a 2-0 lead with 22 minutes left in Game 2 before it all fell apart. But the Kings feel they had been making strides against the defending champions for a while now.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
