Patrick Kane sets up tying goal, scores winner as Blackhawks force LA Kings to Game 7

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.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
