First blood to Blackhawks

Brandon Saad scored the first as the Chicago Blackhawks won the first game of the Western Conference finals 3-1 against the Los Angeles Kings.

Tyler Toffoli cancelled out Saad's first-period opener early in the second period, but Saad set up Duncan Keith to restore Chicago's lead.

And Jonathan Toews got number three at 16:10 in the third to give the Blackhawks the early advantage.
