The Chicago Blackhawks generated a massive 17-2 shot advantage in the first period of Game 1, yet the Los Angeles Kings took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission.
As great as Jonathan Quick has been, it was tough to shake the notion that it was only a matter of time before the Blackhawks broke through. That happened in the second period as Patrick Sharp scored his 2013 playoffs-leading eighth goal to make it 1-1 and then Marian Hossa made a deft deflection to give the Blackhawks the lead.
