The Chicago Blackhawks came to Southern California to play the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night. The end result was a close game, but the Kings were unable to find the offense they needed, and ended up taking the 2-1 loss.
Both teams took a total of 27 shots on goal in the game, but Chicago's Corey Crawford only allowed a single goal.
The Blackhawks got on the board first in the opening period, scoring on a wrap-around by Andrew Brunette. The second period saw Jarret Stoll score the only Kings goal of the game, an unassisted wrist shot. Unfortunately, Jonathan Toews would score a wrist shot of his own a few minutes later to put Chicago on top for good.
Jonathan Quick held the Blackhawks scoreless in the third period, although the Blackhawks only had five shots on goal in that final frame. The Kings tried a late push, taking 10 shots in the third period, but were unable to break through against Crawford.
