Blackhawks vs. Kings Game 6 final score, highlights and reaction

Patrick Kane and the Blackhawks are headed back to Chicago for Game 7 of the Western Conference Final.

3 things to know
  • One more game
    The good news is that the Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings are taking this series to the limit and giving hockey fans one more game. The bad news is they can only play one more game. It was Patrick Kane's three-point night that helped force a decisive in Chicago on Sunday night, and based on the first six games of this series it's probably going to be spectacular. Kane did not record a point in the first three games of the series but has completely dominated the past three games with eight points (two goals, six assists), including the highlight reel game-winner on Friday. While Kane will get all of the headlines, he wasn't the only player that shined for Chicago. Corey Crawford played arguably his best game of the playoffs, making several key saves and nearly found himself in a fight with Jonathan Quick after the second period.
  • Drew Doughty was pretty spectacular
    For as great as Kane was for Chicago, Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty pretty much matched him play-for-play in the third period, scoring a goal and setting up Alec Martinez with a ridiculous behind-the-back pass to give them a brief 3-2 lead. Their dueling highlights was just another chapter in what has been an absolutely thrilling series between the two best teams in hockey.
  • Which Jonathan Quick will show up in Game 7?
    Jonathan Quick has developed a reputation for being an outstanding playoff goalie over the past couple of years. It would probably be nice for the Kings if he played up to that reputation on Sunday. He continued his up-and-down postseason on Friday by giving up four goals on 25 shots. They weren't all entirely on him, and he did find a way to stop a 2-on-0 rush in the second period, but when you're giving up goals to Ben Smith on bank shots from below the goal line and have an .885 save percentage in the series, that's not good enough.
