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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
