Kings Vs. Blackhawks Final Score: Kings Snap Chicago's Five Game Home Winning Streak

The Chicago Blackhawks entered Wednesday night as winners of five straight games at the United Center, but the Los Angeles Kings had other ideas. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick made some unbelievable stops to fuel LA to a 2-0 victory over Chicago. The win improves the Kings to 18-14-5, while the 'Hawks fall to 23-10-4. Chicago still has the most points in the NHL.

Quick made 38 saves in the win, good for his league-leading fifth shutout of the season. 'Hawks goalie Corey Crawford was solid himself, stopping 36 of the 38 shots he faced, but it wasn't enough.

Jarret Stoll of the Kings scored the lone goal of the third period. Stoll's fourth goal of the year came off assists from Justin Williams and Drew Doughty. Trent Hunter's second period goal was the game's only other score.

Kings Vs. Blackhawks Score Update: Chicago Trails 1-0 After Two Periods

The Chicago Blackhawks have been mostly out-played through the first two periods of their Wednesday night matchup against the Los Angeles Kings at the United Center, but the Kings hold only a 1-0 lead with a one period left.

Kings Vs. Blackhawks Score Update: Goalies Keep Game Scoreless After One

The Chicago Blackhawks have risen to the top of the NHL standings thanks to stellar play at home, but the Los Angeles appear to be intimidated. After a back-and-forth first period with quality scoring opportunities on both ends, the Blackhawks and Kings are deadlocked on zero on Wednesday at the United Center. The 'Hawks are looking for their eighth win in nine games.

Both goalies have been outstanding thus far. Chicago's Corey Crawford has been impressive in his few starts, and stopped 13 LA shots on net in the first period. Jonathan Quick has also been very good this year (2.16 GAA), and he stopped ten shots by the Blackhawks in the opening period.

Each team drew two penalties in the first. John Scott (two minutes for roughing) and Patrick Sharp (four minute double minor for high sticking) were each whistled for Chicago. Brad Richard (two minutes for hooking) and Drew Doughty (two minutes for interference) were the culprits for the Kings.
