After knocking off the Blackhawks in Chicago, the Kings will look to win on home ice and take the lead in the Western Conference finals.

In game two, the Los Angeles Kings exploded for six straight goals to erase a 2-0 deficit, handing the Chicago Blackhawks their first postseason defeat at the United Center. Jeff Carter bagged a third period hat-trick to seal the win for L.A., who are seeking their second Stanley Cup in three years. The defending champs will have to shake off the uncharacteristic swoon and try to keep the dangerous Kings from taking control of the series with a road victory of their own.
