In nail-biting, edge of your seat, double overtime fashion, the Blackhawks dethroned the LA Kings. In a back and forth battle that was far from pretty, it was great to see Kane launch himself with the momentum he gained in game 4.
Kane now has 4 goals in his last 2 playoff games and is again looking like the Youtube/video game sensation of old.
Aside from Kane's stellar performance and a Stanley Cup final berth, a few holes were exposed in the Blackhawks' game Saturday night that they need to fill in order to beat the juggernaut Bruins.
Many key faceoffs were lost in Game 5, including one that allowed the Kings to send the game to OT with 9.4 seconds left in the game. Also, The Hawks power play continues to offend the masses as it allowed a Kings' short handed goal earlier in the game.
The good news is Boston plowed through a Pittsburgh team that had no defense and questionable goaltending, none of which have been a problem for the Hawks in the post season.
