Chicago Blackhawks Make Statement with Convincing Win over Los Angeles Kings | Bleacher Report

Officials looked at the replay to determine if Carcillo’s stick was above the crossbar, it was ruled a good goal and the Blackhawks had a 1-0 advantage at the one-minute, 52-second mark. Championship teams like the Kings can easily overcome a 1-0 lead and have done so many times. However, elite teams like the Blackhawks know how to apply the pressure when they get the advantage and make it difficult on even the best opponents. That’s just what the Blackhawks did in this game, and Richards was the key performer. He scored two goals, as the Blackhawks built a 3-1 lead after two periods and then gave the Kings no breathing room in the third as they tried to mount a comeback. Brandon Saadscored the only goal of the final 20 minutes when he slid the puck into the empty net with 1:49 remaining. The Blackhawks used their quickness and and finishing ability to get the jump on the Kings, and they also continued to show their dominance as penalty killers. The Blackhawks blanked Los Angeles on three power-play chances and remain the league’s best team in short-handed situations. They have shut down opponents on 91.3 percent of their man-advantage opportunities, giving them a small, but significant, edge over the Wild, who rank second at 88.7 percent. The 2011-12 New Jersey Devils set the NHL’s all-time record for best penalty-kill percentage with an 89.6 percent mark. Kings coach Darryl Sutter is not one to mince words or hand out false compliments. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2284209-chicago-blackhawks-make-statement-with-convincing-win-over-los-angeles-kings

Jordan Nolan scored, and Jonathan Quick stopped 21 shots for Los Angeles. It was the first meeting between the teams since the Western Conference finals, won in seven games by the eventual Cup champion Kings. Trailing 2-0, the Kings got on the board at 5:53 of the second period when defenseman Jake Muzzins slap shot from the left point hit the shaft of Nolans stick and fluttered between Crawfords pads. It was the first goal in 14 games this season for Nolan, who would have been a healthy scratch if not for Marian Gaboriks upper-body injury. Chicago regained its two-goal margin at 8:14 of the second on a rush in which four players touched the puck in the Kings end. Richards converted Michal Rozsivals pass at the left of the net for his sixth goal and third in two games. Richards failed to score a goal for the New York Rangers during last seasons Stanley Cup finals. Carcillo opened the scoring at 1:52 of the first, batting in his own rebound after the Kings won a faceoff in their zone and turned over the puck. Just 28 seconds after serving Crawfords tripping penalty, Kris Versteeg took the puck away from Quick and Matt Greene behind the net and found Richards at the left of the crease for a one-timer that beat Quick with 2:01 left in the first. NOTES: Kings D Alec Martinez missed his seventh straight game because of an upper-body injury. source: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014/11/29/richards-scores-twice-as-blackhawks-dump-kings-4-1/
