The Night That Was: Exploding Kings Top Hawks

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

LA explodes and the Hawks imploded in the lone game of the night.

Recap:

Los Angeles Kings 6 Chicago Blackhawks 2

The LA Kings exploded for a 5 goal third period and the Chicago Blackhawks had no answer for this. Two great teams playing each other makes me hope that this series is a long one and that good hockey is played every game. GAME THREE IS ON CBC and the series is tied 1-1.
