Los Angeles Kings
The Blackhawks’ series lead has been trimmed to 2-1 with another game at the Staples Center — where the Kings have now won 15 straight — Thursday night.
After back-to-back losses in Chicago, the Kings are hoping they can stay perfect at Staples Center in a crucial Game 3 on Tuesday night.
Bryan Bickell and Michal Handzus scored on consecutive shots in the second period, and the Chicago Blackhawks chased goalie Jonathan Quick on their way to a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals.
After a rare day off for rest and contemplation, the Los Angeles Kings came back focused on what’s missing from their run at a second straight Stanley Cup title.
Joe Thornton got San Jose off to a fast start with a power-play goal in the first period and TJ Galiardi added a goal in the second to help the Sharks force a decisive seventh game.
