The Blackhawks were facing elimination on Friday night but were able to win 4-3 with a late goal by Patrick Kane to force one more game.

“There’s still not much room out there in this series,” Kane said. “Right now, you have to take advantage of your opportunities when you do get space.”

“I didn’t see anything off the rush,” Kane added. “I took it up the line and tried to get a shot through. I think (Andrew Shaw) was in front getting a great screen. Luckily, it went in.”

Chicago’s effectiveness was the difference as they had only 3 shots in 3rd period, but managed 2 goals. The Kings had their chance and blew it.  It’s important for them to get it together and start thinking about game seven.

“I feel like I’m a broken record here, but we’ve got to be sharp in our own end,” Kings Alex Martinez said. “We weren’t making plays that we normally make. We’ve got to be quick to contact on them. We weren’t very sharp.”

The NHL odds for this decisive game have the Chicago Blackhawks as favorites in the money line listed at -149 and the Los Angeles Kings are +135.
