  • Right on cue, Kane rescues Hawks to live another day May 31, 2014 12:38 AM
    Remember about a week ago when Patrick Kane admitted he was a little bummed that he hadn’t yet come up with the big play at the big moment in the Western Conference Finals? Yeah, well those days are officially over because Kane was Kane in the biggest game of the season and now the Blackhawks, somewhat improbably, are one victory away from a return trip to the Stanley Cup Final.

  • There almost had to be a Game 7 May 31, 2014 12:01 AM
    If you think the Blackhawks-Kings series has been entertaining through six games, it might be that you haven't seen anything yet. There's nothing in sports like a decisive Game 7.

  • Kane, Blackhawks leave Kings searching for answers May 31, 2014 12:20 AM
    What will remain inexplicable is the Blackhawks’ mind-numbing need to dig a canyon before mounting the heroic effort to climb out, usually against overwhelming odds. What remains indefinable, and yet somehow predictable, is the character and heart of a group that simply doesn’t want to go home until the last game of the season is concluded.

  • Onto Game 7! Hawks blow past Kings 4-3 May 30, 2014 11:00 PM
    Patrick Kane scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:45 to play, and the 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 to help the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks avoid elimination for the second straight game.

  • Blackhawks need fresh legs, speed in lineup May 30, 2014 5:07 AM
    Joel Quenneville has pushed the right buttons too many times to try to count them all, and he will go down as one of the greatest coaches ever. But when it comes to loyalty, he's got a stubborn side that borders on the absurd. The most obvious example is the continued presence of Kris Versteeg and Brandon Bollig, both of whom could have been removed from the lineup weeks ago.

  • Blackhawks still want to be king of the mountain May 29, 2014 5:19 AM
    The Stanley Cup champs showed up Wednesday night for the first time since the middle of Game 2 and announced to the Kings that winning that coveted fourth game in the Western Conference finals will be no easy task. “The pressure was all on them coming into this game,” Brandon Saad said. “It's only going to get worse from here for them. They don't want to come back to Chicago.”

  • Lineup tweak pays huge dividends May 29, 2014 1:05 AM
    Facing a 3-1 deficit against the Detroit Red Wings in the conference semifinals a year ago, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville made an eye-opening lineup switch with his defensemen that worked for the rest of the playoffs. After splitting longtime defense partners Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook mid-season, he reunited them before Game 5 at United Center and the Hawks won to get back in the series. Wednesday night at the UC, facing a 3-1 deficit against the Los Angeles Kings, he did it again — only in reverse.

  • Last two games in L.A. mean nothing May 29, 2014 10:31 PM
    Blackhawks broadcaster Troy Murray says Friday night's game between the Hawks and Kings will be a tight contest, but Games 3-4 shouldn't mean anything to Hawks right now.

  • Day to remember for Saad May 29, 2014 7:54 PM
    Brandon Saad has been one of the Blackhawks' best players in the Western Conference finals, but his virtuoso performance Wednesday night in Game 5 was on an entirely different level. Playing left wing on a line with Patrick Kane and Andrew Shaw, the 21-year old Saad steadily took the game over. “I feel that was one of the best games I ever played on one of the biggest stages,” Saad said Thursday.

  • Blackhawks vow that they’re not finished yet May 29, 2014 9:05 PM
    Los Angeles had to realize this wasn’t going to be easy, especially when the defending champs have a leader with the experience, drive and big picture mentality of Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews.

  • Mike North video: Do the Kings want it more? May 28, 2014 9:42 AM
    As the Blackhawks face elimination against the Los Angeles Kings, Mike North wonders if they can rise to the occasion and come through like they did last year.

  • Images: Blackhawks vs. Kings, Game Five May 30, 2014 8:58 AM

  • Great Zus! Hawks win 5-4 in double OT to stay alive May 28, 2014 11:21 PM
    Michal Handzus scored at 2:04 of the second overtime, and the Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-4 in Game 5 on Wednesday night to stay alive in the Western Conference final. Brandon Saad made a nice pass to the middle to Handzus, who beat goalie Jonathan Quick with a backhander for his second goal of the playoffs. Handzus celebrated by jumping against boards behind the net as the sellout crowd of 21,871 roared. Saad had a goal and two assists for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who stopped a three-game losing streak. Patrick Kane set a playoff career high with four assists. Game 6 is Friday night in Los Angeles. Marian Gaborik and Dustin Brown each had a goal and an assist for the Kings, who led 4-3 after two periods. It was Gaborik’s NHL-best 11th playoff goal. Quick and Chicago’s Corey Crawford each stopped 40 shots. Los Angeles was in position to advance to its second Stanley Cup final in three years before Ben Smith drove to the net and beat Quick on a rebound 1:17 into the third. Smith’s third goal of the playoffs set the stage for a frantic finish as both sides pushed for the winning score. Kings center Jarret Stoll was sent off for tripping with 3:11 left in regulation, giving the Blackhawks a prime opportunity to move in front. Quick stopped Kane on a big slap shot, and then turned away Bryan Bickell in front to keep the game tied at 4. Quick made another solid stop on Marian Hossa in overtime, and the loose puck was swept away by Los Angeles. Kings star Anze Kopitar had a chance to win it about 9 minutes into the first overtime but his shot went off the side of the net.

  • Second line hardly plays second fiddle May 29, 2014 1:09 AM
    Talk about getting just the boost you’re looking for. That’s just what Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville got early on from his re-constituted second line of Patrick Kane, Andrew Shaw and Brandon Saad.

  • Slumping Handzus has crowning moment May 29, 2014 11:51 AM
    Michal Handzus is well aware what people have been saying about him this postseason. He knows that when it comes to possible lineup changes for Joel Quenneville to ponder, his is one of the first names Blackhawks fans will rattle off. But "Zus" came out of his slump in a big way in Game 5 against the Kings, beating Jonathan Quick on a beautiful backhand, top-shelf shot to cap a thrilling 5-4 double overtime victory for the Blackhawks Wednesday night at the United Center.

  • For one night at least, justice is served May 29, 2014 12:10 AM
    Life isn't fair in general but is anything less fair than a team from Los Angeles being able to even be on the same ice as a hockey team from Chicago? Didn't we invent winter here?

  • How Hawks went from gloomy to happy last year May 27, 2014 10:04 AM
    The Blackhawks are down 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Kings. Hmmm, on the verge of elimination from the playoffs — where have we heard this before?

  • Blackhawks’ Seabrook knows he has to be better May 27, 2014 10:29 PM

  • Blackhawks’ special teams? Not so special May 27, 2014 10:28 PM
    The Blackhawks proved last season that you can win the Stanley Cup with an ineffective power play, but now their penalty kill is also failing and they’re on the verge of elimination. If they’re unable to climb out of a 3-1 hole in the Western Conference Final against the Kings, the Hawks will look back at their special teams and point the finger.
