Los Angeles Kings vs. Chicago Blackhawks Game 5: Live Score, Updates, Analysis

Isaac SmithAnalyst IJune 8, 2013

The Chicago Blackhawks are going to the Stanley Cup Final!

Patrick Kane finished with a hat trick in a great game for hockey fans.

The Blackhawks built a two-goal lead with two goals, early in the first period. The Kings rallied from that 2-0 deficit with a shorthanded goal in the second period and an even more surprising power-play goal in the third period.

Patrick Kane had a pair of goals. One of these goals put the Blackhawks up 3-2 with under four minutes to play in the third period.

But the Kings scored with just nine seconds left, as the shot hit Mike Richards in the pants and deflected into the net.

The teams battled vigorously in overtime, but Patrick Kane ended the game in double overtime with his third goal of the night as Kane took a pass from Jonathan Toews on a two-on-one and rifled it past Quick for the series winner.

The Blackhawks will meet the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final.
