LOS ANGELES KINGS (0-1) AT CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS (1-0), 8 P.M.
(SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Blackhawks will take aim at a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals Wednesday when they host the Los Angeles Kings in Game 2 from United Center.
The defending Stanley Cup champions drew first blood in the opener of this best-of-seven set, downing the visiting Kings by a 3-1 score on Sunday.
Los Angeles hopes for a better result on Wednesday, as it aims to avoid its second straight series loss to the Blackhawks in the conference finals. The Kings fell behind 2-0 on the road in last spring's encounter, and only won Game 3 on home ice before falling to Chicago in five games. Sunday's opener marked the first time two teams met in the Western finals in back-to-back years since the Stars/Avalanche in 1999-2000.
