How to watch Blackhawks vs. Kings Game 6 online, game time, TV schedule and preview

After a double-overtime thriller in Game 5, the Blackhawks will need some more magic to keep their season alive against the Kings in Game 6 on Friday night.

Back on home ice, the Los Angeles Kings have another crack to advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the second time in three years, but standing in their way are the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks.

Western Conference Final

The Blackhawks held off elimination with their double overtime win over the Kings in Game 5 in Chicago on Wednesday night, and they're back in Los Angeles with hopes of forcing a Game 7, which if they win Friday will be played on Sunday at United Center.

The bad news for L.A. is that they've lost three straight games in every series so far in these playoffs, and ... well, that's still certainly possible in these Western Conference Finals. The bad news for Chicago is that they've yet to win a game on the road in the series, so that'll have to change pretty quickly to force a Game 7.

Lineups are expected to be the same, with Corey Crawford starting in goal for the Blackhawks and Jonathan Quick going for Los Angeles.
