NHL Game Summary - Chicago at Los Angeles



(Monday, February 3rd)

Final Score: Chicago 5, Los Angeles 3

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Patrick Kane had two goals and one assist after finding out his grandfather died and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-3 on Monday.

Bryan Bickell, Marcus Kruger and Nick Leddy also scored for the Blackhawks, who got just their second win in seven games. Corey Crawford had 31 saves.

Kane learned of his grandfather's death before the game. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said he didn't hear about it until after the second period.

"It was a tough day overall," said Kane. "He was one of my great friends growing up and it is just a really sad day. It was important to get the win but ... it was tough to hear that right before the game."

Drew Doughty, Anze Kopitar and Tyler Toffoli scored for the Kings, who have lost four in a row and nine of their last 10 (1-8-1). Jonathan Quick gave up five goals on 30 shots.

The Kings scored more than one goal for the first time in seven games. They got more than two goals for only the fifth time in their last 21 games since Dec. 23. They are 5-14-2 in that span.

The Kings wrap up their homestand Thursday against Columbus, their last game before the NHL breaks for the Sochi Olympics. It might do the team some good to be away for a few weeks.

"You plan on playing your best game of the year," said Kings coach Darryl Sutter.

The Blackhawks have won three straight against the Kings and five of the last six meetings.

They took a 2-0 lead after 8:44 on Kane's power play goal on a nice solo effort from the right side and Bickell's goal on a 3-on-1.

"It was a great start," said Quenneville. "We had some excitement in our game."

Doughty scored 68 seconds after Bickell's goal and Kopitar tie the game at 2-2, flipping the puck past Crawford 6:30 into the second quarter.

But Chicago rattled off three straight goals after that. Kruger deflected Leddy's slap shot from the high left side at 13:51 of the second period, Leddy scored on a slap shot 7:01 into the third and Kane jammed in Patrick Sharp's pass in front of the crease 4:08 after that for a 5-2 lead. Toffoli's goal came on a rebound after Jeff Carter tried a wrap-around.

Game Notes

Chicago is 2-0-2 on a seven-game road trip and LA has dropped the first three games of a four-game homestand ... The Blackhawks continue their road trip against Anaheim on Wednesday, one of two games they have remaining before the Olympics break.
