Hawks force game seven

Patrick Kane scored three points as The Chicago Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 to force game seven in the Western Conference final.

The defending champions looked down and out as goals from Drew Doughty and Alec Martinez put the Kings 3-2 up with 12 minutes to play but Duncan Keith levelled the scores before Kane's goal tied the series at 3-3.

Dwight King had earlier put LA ahead in the first period but Kane and Ben Smith had Chicago in the lead before the dramatic third period unfolded.

The series decider will take place on Sunday in Chicago.
