Blackhawks look to go up 2-0 on Kings
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings skated along similar paths toward the top, hitting in the draft and making shrewd moves.
And once again, they find themselves trying to knock each other out in the Western Conference finals for the second straight year.
The Blackhawks prevailed last year on their way to the Stanley Cup, and they have the early lead this time after taking the opener, 3-1. They will try to go up 2-0 when the best-of-seven series continues Wednesday at the United Center.
