How to watch Blackhawks vs. Kings Game 7 online, game time, TV schedule and preview

Harry How

One game for all the marbles. The Kings and Blackhawks -- the two most-recent Stanley Cup champions -- battle in Game 7 for the right to play for the Cup again.

It all comes down to one game. The Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings face off in Game 7 on Sunday night for a chance to advance to the Stanley Cup Final against the New York Rangers, and it should be a game for the ages.

On one side you have the Kings: the 2012 Cup champion, the team that erased a 3-0 series deficit against the San Jose Sharks in Round 1 of these 2014 playoffs, and a team that's scored seemingly at will during this Western Conference Final.

On the other side you have the Blackhawks, the defending champion that's looking to come back from a 3-1 series deficit for the second time in three years. Games 5 and 6 were as close as it gets, with the Hawks coming back in the third period on Friday night to win and keep their season alive and tie the series, two nights after they won a double OT thriller at United Center.

Both of these teams are truly elite, and both would be very worthy Western champs, if not Stanley Cup champs. It all comes down to 60 minutes or more in Game 7, which is the only suitable finale to what's been a great playoff series.
