CHICAGO -- Four months later, it remains a goal that stings the Chicago Blackhawks.

Scored by Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alec Martinez 5:47 into overtime of Game 7 in the 2014 Western Conference Final, it sent the Kings to the Stanley Cup and left the Blackhawks with a summer of "what ifs?" to ponder.

What if they'd protected those two-goal leads in that game? What if defenseman Nick Leddy's stick hadn't been knocked to the ice seconds before Kings forward Justin Williams retrieved the puck and sent it out to Martinez?

Chicago's Versteeg healthy, ready to redeem himself

NHL.com continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.

Preseason Roundup: Crosby-less Penguins win

NHL.com

Kasperi Kapanen and Andrew Ebbett had first-period goals and the Pittsburgh Penguins held on to beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Saturday.

Kapanen, the Penguins' first-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, scored a power-play goal 5:52 into the game by roofing a shot past Sergei Bobrovsky. Ebbett, who dressed because Sidney Crosby missed the game because of the death of his grandmother, doubled the lead at 11:44.

Crosby had been expected to make his preseason debut.

Brian Gibbons, who played for the Penguins last season before signing with the Blue Jackets as a free agent this summer, scored a power-play goal early in the third period. It was the only one of Columbus' 19 shots to beat Marc-Andre Fleury.
