Patrick Sharp Will Miss 3-4 Weeks

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Sharp is expected to miss three to four weeks due to a lower-body injury, head coach Joel Quenneville said Thursday.

Sharp was hurt during the third period of the team's game against the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday, when he was hit into the boards and had to be helped off the ice. He did not return to the game.

"Miss a guy like Sharpie, you miss some production, miss some consistency in a lot of areas," Quenneville said. "At the same time, it's a good opportunity for some guys that are looking and want more."

Center Peter Regin was re-called from the Blackhawks AHL affiliate in Rockford to take Sharp's place.

The 32-year-old Sharp, who led the Blackhawks with 78 points last season, has played in 13 games this season, scoring three goals while handing out six assists.

Versteeg Expected to Miss 3 Weeks with Lower Body Injury

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Chicago Blackhawks winger Kris Versteeg is expected to miss three weeks due to a lower body injury, head coach Joel Quenneville said Wednesday.

Versteeg was injured during Tuesday's practice and is coming off of major knee surgery that was performed last year.

“It’s kind of frustrating and disappointing for him,” Quenneville said. “He was very upset with what happened. We’re disappointed, too. We really felt he gives us a lot of versatility and options in our game, (with) penalty-killing getting more ice time for him. It looks like he found that stride that he was looking for.”

There's still a chance Versteeg could go on the long-term injured reserve, although Quenneville doesn't think it's likely.

Ben Smith will take Versteeg's place on the third line alongside Bryan Bickell and Brad Richards.

The 28-year-old Versteeg scored 12 goals and dished out 24 assists while playing for Florida and Chicago last season.

Martinez's OT Goal Lifts Kings into Stanley Cup Final

Justin Heiman/Getty Images(CHICAGO, Ill.) -- The Los Angeles Kings trailed the Chicago Blackhawks 2-0 in the first period but battled back to force overtime in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. Less than six minutes into the extra frame, Alec Martinez scored, giving the Kings a 5-4 win and sending them to their second Stanley Cup Final in three seasons.

"We've battled back so many times this year and so many times in these playoffs, we said, 'Why not again today?'" said winger Justin Williams. "It was a total team effort, every single guy here giving everything they've got."

Williams tied the game at 2-2 in the first period and later assisted on the game-winner, giving him 14 career points in Game 7's, the most all-time. Los Angeles never led until Martinez's tally in overtime. The Blackhawks took a 3-2 lead into the first intermission thanks to Patrick Sharp and again led 4-3 after two periods, courtesy of Sharp's power play goal. Marion Gaborik knotted things up in the third with his 12th goal of the postseason.

The Kings will now face the New York Rangers, the team that traded Gaborik at the deadline in the 2012-13 season, in the Stanley Cup Final. Los Angeles won the title in 2012, their only championship in franchise history.

Corey Crawford made 27 saves in the loss, as the defending champs were ousted on home ice. 

Jonathan Quick stopped 37 shots, including one in the final seconds of regulation. Los Angeles improves to 7-0 in elimination games in the playoffs and become the first team to ever reach the Stanley Cup Final by winning three Game 7's. The Kings and Rangers play Game 1 on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

Kane Helps Chicago Force Game Seven

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Patrick Kane scored the game-winning goal with less than four minutes remaining in the third as Chicago forced a decisive Game Seven in the NHL's Western Conference Finals. Kane's second goal of the game gave the Blackhawks a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

"There's still not much room out there in this series," said Kane, who also assisted on Duncan Keith's game-tying tally. "Right now, you have to take advantage of your opportunities when you do get space."

Los Angeles took the lead after the first period after a goal from Dwight King late in the frame. The Blackhawks scored two consecutive goals less than three minutes into the second. Kane's first tally helped tie things up when, 1:37 later, Ben Smith gave Chicago their first lead of the game.

A frantic third period saw a combined four goals and two lead changes. Drew Doughty knotted up the score for the Kings before Alec Martinez scored on a power play goal with just over 12 minutes to play. That advantage would not hold long as Kane found Keith for the goal that made it 3-3 in the waning moments of regulation. 

Kane, last year's Conn Smythe winner, scored his second goal of the game five minutes later and ultimately gave Chicago the win. The Blackhawks have now come back from being down 3-1 in the series to force a decisive Game 7 to be play in Chicago on Sunday. 

Corey Crawford made 22 saves for Chicago while Jonathan Quick stopped 25 shots in the loss. The winner of Game 7 will face the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Final.

Handzus Nets Game Winner for Blackhawks in 2OT

Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Michal Handzus fired a backhander past Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick 2:04 into the second overtime, to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 5-4 victory over the Kings Wednesday, in Game 5 of the NHL Western Conference Final.

The win keeps the Blackhawks alive in the best-of-seven series, which Los Angeles now leads three games to two.

"I want to help the team as much as I can," Handzus said. "I'm playing on the PK a lot. I'm not playing very well offensively. I'm glad I came through."

He was able to because of teammate Brandon Saad, whose pass set up the winning goal. Saad finished the game with a goal and two assists.

"Personally, I thought Saader was the best player on the ice tonight," said Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane, who had four assists in the win. "He was bringing so much speed and puck protection."

The Blackhawks were down 4-3 in the third period before Ben Smith scored at the 1:17 mark. 

Jonathan Quick made 40 saves in the loss while Corey Crawford had 40 saves in the win.

Game 6 is Friday in Los Angeles. The puck is scheduled to drop at 9 p.m. Eastern.
