Playing on the second of back-to-back nights, the Hawks struck quickly, with a Nick Leddy pinch preventing a Kings clear, enabling Viktor Stalberg to feed Andrew Shaw for a shot that rang in off the post behind Jonathan Quick:
As they have all playoffs, the Blackhawks killed that off, keeping the Chicago penalty kill perfect on home ice during the playoffs and 43-for-44 overall in the postseason.

Ironically, Keith's losing his balance before Brown hit him may have lessened the impact.
The Kings are playing without Mike Richards and Jake Muzzin, each late scratches and each victims of big hits in Game 1. Tyler Toffoli replaced Richards in the lineup, while Muzzin's replacement was Alec Martinez, who hadn't played since Game 2 of the previous series.
