The LA Kings had a magical run to the Stanley Cup last year, and gave everything they had this year, including scoring in the final seconds to force OT, the Chicago Blackhawks, they were just a bit better
Patrick Kane skated toward the middle of the ice, dropped to his knees and pumped his right arm, surrounded by a sea of red jumping up and down in waves.
The hats began to come down as the Chicago Blackhawks rushed in to celebrate another trip to the Stanley Cup finals.
It was an emphatic checkmate at the end of a long night. The Los Angeles Kings‘ NHL reign is finished.
Kane scored his third goal of the game 11:40 into the second overtime period and the Blackhawks beat the defending champion Kings 4-3 on Saturday to advance to the finals.
“Right now I think it’s almost like I’m in a different zone, like in the Twilight Zone or something,” Kane said, calling it the best game of his career. “I’m kind of out of it. It’s definitely a good feeling, though.”
How good should Blackhawks Bruins be? I cannot wait. If this does not go seven games, I will be stunned. My pick? Bruins in 7
