Only two minutes after taking a 1-0 lead, Chicago stikes again with 14:01 left in the first period to double its lead.
Quick and his defenders thought an errant pass would turn into an icing call, but the officials waved it off.
The puck bounces in front of the crease, where Kane picks it up and patiently waits to fire at an open net, with Quick and Kings defenseman Drew Doughty getting tangled in front of the goal.
The goal was Kane’s fourth of the postseason.
With a 2-0 lead, the Blackhawks have outshot the Kings, 7-0, in the first 10 minutes of the game.
And we're off.
With less than four minutes into the game, Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith makes his presence known after serving a one-game suspension in Game 4.
Keith took a deep slap shot from just in front of the blue line and snuck it past Kings goalie Jonathan Quick. It was a save the 2012 Conn Smythe Award winner should have saved, but instead the Blackhawks take a 1-0 lead.
Los Angeles is 1-5 when their opponent scores first this postseason.
Defenseman Michael Rozsival picked up the assist.
The former Flyer came into the Western Conference finals as the team’s leading point-getter, with 10 points on two goals and eight assists.
According to the report, out of the lineup comes center Brad Richardson and Colin Fraser.
