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.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
