Blackhawks hold tight, take out Kings 3-1 in Game 1

May 18, 2014, 5:56 PM EDT

The Chicago Blackhawks had four days off to prepare for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals and needed all of it to hold back the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 at United Center.

Duncan Keith‘s goal at 11:54 of the second period proved to be the game-winner and the Blackhawks grabbed a 1-0 series lead at home. Keith’s slap shot from the blue line hit off the stick of Kings forward Trevor Lewis and took a wicked bounce to help propel the puck past Jonathan Quick to make it 2-1.

It wasn’t all easy for the Blackhawks as they had to withstand a push from the Kings in the second period that saw them outshoot Chicago 17-6. Overall in the game, Corey Crawford was outstanding as he made 25 saves to earn the win. It was the third straight game Crawford has only allowed one goal.

Chicago jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first period when Brandon Saad scored on a deflection on the power play. Saad tipped Nick Leddy‘s shot past Quick to get the Blackhawks off on the right foot.

The Blackhawks thought they had a 2-0 lead early in the second period when Jonathan Toews slipped the puck past Quick, but the goal was disallowed after the officials discussed Toews running into Quick on the play. The Kings capitalized on the no-goal call and Tyler Toffoli made it 1-1 just 1:13 later.

Toews wouldn’t be denied, however, as he scored with 3:50 left in the third to give the Blackhawks a 3-1 lead. The win was Chicago’s seventh straight home victory in the playoffs.

Now that you’ve watched all those videos, here are the full highlights from Game 1:

    Daaaaaaa Hawks!!!!!!

    • fslove123 - May 18, 2014 at 7:22 PM

      Why do all the announcers keep saying the hawks are the SECOND highest scoring team in the league this year when they scored the most goals of any teams this year? Hawks 267 goals to Duck’s 266.

      Good game today (Go Hawks!) But I would expect the games to get better as the series goes on!

      • wjarvis - May 18, 2014 at 7:29 PM

        I assume your getting those numbers from the ESPN standings page, where for some stupid reason they include an extra goal for winning a shootout (They may do this elsewhere too, I’m not sure). The ducks scored 263 times, hawks 261.

      • fslove123 - May 18, 2014 at 8:07 PM

        NHL.com lists the same stats on goals as well. Where are you getting the alternate goal stats?

  2. tripps3 - May 18, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    Another big game by Crawford, he’s been a beast

    Excellent win for the Hawks, but boo to the NHL for making us wait till Wednesday for game 2.

  5. patthehockeyfan - May 18, 2014 at 6:05 PM

    Really good game by both the Hawks and Kings. Can’t wait until Wednesday.

    GKG!!!

    • machosasquatcho - May 18, 2014 at 9:50 PM

      Shut up, blomfeld. You’ve been a Kings fan since 2012, which is probably around the same time you made 10-20 alternate accounts and began spamming this board with all of them.

      Keep refreshing this site all day every day and have more conversations with yourself. It sure makes you look sane and fulfilled.

    I guess Bollig isn’t completely useless after all…

    • wjarvis - May 18, 2014 at 6:16 PM

      Though he was also part of the bad attempted change that helped lead to the Kings goal. I’d still rather have Morin playing at least until Shaw is healthy again.

  8. joejacks - May 18, 2014 at 6:10 PM

    The disallowed goal was an absolute joke!

    The Refs have been absolutely horrid this playoff year!

      When are all you folks going to realize that Blomfeld aka (Dumbfeld) is nothing but a front running bandwagon fraud from Alberta, who quickly jumped off his Calgary wagon and hopped on the Kings a couple years back. He also is the same person as Joey4ID .. multiple screen names multiple accounts. try not to lump that guy into the real King’s fans territory.

      • joey4id - May 18, 2014 at 7:31 PM

        hehehehehehe! you idiot. 😜

        signed Joey….

        not blomfeld

        it’s pretty much self explanatory when ya’ll have a conversation back and forth kissing each other, making plans with each other and most of all agreeing tooth and nail with one another’s posts about these games! lmao

      • r8rbhawk - May 18, 2014 at 9:06 PM

        Are we sure Slysipops isn’t another Blomfeld/Joey account?

      • President Charles Logan - May 18, 2014 at 10:37 PM

        oh im sure joey has more then 5 accounts … he is blomfeld for sure , hence the reason he/she becomes so defensive about it

      • joey4id - May 18, 2014 at 9:56 PM

        Ok. Inspector gadget. hahahaha. Awesome logic. Then, you and machosasquatcho are the same person.

        I suppose I can agree with you, but, that would mean you and I were the same person. Just the thought of that gives me the creeps.

        how does it feel to hitch onto my popularity to get a bit of attention yourself? 😊

  12. 2difshoe - May 18, 2014 at 6:17 PM

    And the ” Crow ” flies high once again !

    Ill take Crow over any goalie in any series. He is easily the best in the league right now !!

    • wjarvis - May 18, 2014 at 6:55 PM

      Crow continues to play well, and is certainly on my short list right now for the Conn Smythe. That said, I don’t think he’s the best in the league, he’s a top 10 goalie and with the rest of the Hawks talent that’s more than enough.

      • 2difshoe - May 18, 2014 at 6:58 PM

        @wjarvis…may I ask who would you want in goal if you were seeking a Stanley Cup ?

      • wjarvis - May 18, 2014 at 7:15 PM

        My point is that the Hawks are deep enough that they don’t need a goalie to carry them. Crow stole the first and last game against the Wild, and as I said above has been one of the top Hawks this post season.

        If I could keep the rest of the Hawks roster, then I’d feel good about the Hawks chances to win a cup with Crawford, Rask, Varlamov, Price, Quick, Ludqvist, Lehtonen, Rinne, Smith, Miller, to name a few and could probably name another 5 goalies before starting to feel like goalie was enough of a weakness to not make them one of the top cup contenders.

      • endusersolutions2013 - May 19, 2014 at 1:24 AM

        Objectively, Rask has been the best goalie the last to years – regular season and playoffs. And Corey C is close behind, Lundqvist as well. And he’s a great fit for the Hawks.

        I would not want to see someone else and I’m glad Stan B made his vote of confidence.

  13. charlieconway96 - May 18, 2014 at 6:18 PM

    Wish the Kings had an extra day of rest, they looked gassed in the third. Good game over all though!

  14. sabatimus - May 18, 2014 at 6:23 PM

    Outshot XX-XX, huh? I guess that’s a double strike to a double strike.

  15. hammerhead5573 - May 18, 2014 at 6:23 PM

    Nothing unexpected in this game. Two shutdown defenses doing what they do. Undecided about the no goal call on Toews but thankfully it didn’t come into play.

  16. cfos00 - May 18, 2014 at 6:40 PM

    Good win, esp with that horrific reffing. Even if you’re okay with the disallowed goal, the two obvious trips and Saad getting drug down from behind in the corner on the power play were pretty hard to miss in the 3rd. The Hawks looked really good across the board today, the 3rd and 4th lines both looked much better, and the defense held up for Crow when he needed it.

    Quick also looked very average today. He was giving up a ton of rebounds and didn’t react to three or four shots. I’m expecting him to play a little better throughout the series.

    • dannymac17 - May 18, 2014 at 6:56 PM

      you mean when saad did his best impression of Luis Suarez?

      • cfos00 - May 18, 2014 at 7:09 PM

        Try skating with one blade getting swept and a stick between your legs. That’s a trip any day of the week.

    Who sucked more balls? Homer announcers or refs?

      Emrick and Olczyk should do all games.

      I am too, and loved Giardonos when I was in the metro. I like Uno’s, but Giardonos was my fave.

    • florida727 - May 19, 2014 at 11:47 AM

      Best THIN pizza in Chicago is Fox’s. One location in Oak Lawn on 94th and Cicero, the other in Orland Park, somewhere near 147th and LaGrange Road if I remember right. If you try it, be forewarned… you’ll never eat any other thin pizza ever again.

    Bollig went down like he was heart punched by Chara, so first goal crap. Second goal fluky slap shot, Toews 3 on 1 best goal they scored, that was a tough one. Hawks fans are lucky Toffoli hit the post after walking around Crawford. Look out Game 2 after a rested Kings team.

    • r8rbhawk - May 18, 2014 at 7:06 PM

      They don’t ask how, just how many.

    • comeonnowguys - May 18, 2014 at 8:19 PM

      Thought it was a flip until I saw the replay. Guy came at him from the side and pushed right when his near leg is up. I think even I could have pushed him down under those conditions.

      Regardless that was way too late to do that. If you put yourself in a borderline call, you can’t get mad when it happens. Just wait until Shaw comes back. You will see out go the other way.

  25. muckleflugga - May 18, 2014 at 10:11 PM

    i’m not sure the term bandwagon fits in sport, defining as it does a period of time qualifying one’s legitimacy chasing trends or seeking association with team or player success as it evolves in the moment

    what of those judging bandwagons … what experience following teams or players anoints arbiters of trends accordingly

    among players that became the mcgill redmen in 1877, james creighton played his first organized hockey game at mcgill in 1875 … the national hockey league was founded in 1917 with the los angeles kings following in 1967

    it would follow therefore, fans of every team or player in the nhl began as fans from 1917 forward, chasing a trend continuing through the contemporary professional game, fans including the hawks or kings in the moment, and of course our blomfeld

    laughably enough, blomfeld stands accused of having jumped the kings bandwagon, but by whom carrying what in the way of hockey cred, beyond demonstrable capacity for sunday night tittle tattle

    having followed blomfeld’s oft-times irreverent posts in these boards, i’ve discovered enough about the man to know his history as a fan of the los angeles kings began around 1972 …

    complemented with his apparent understandings of the vancouver canucks and other nhl teams and their players going forward, his support of kings is clearly fixed in time

    while his commentary in support of the kings can be complex, and is either intermingled with riddle or is nonsensical by design, he can invite as much comment in response as blogs themselves

    through it all, blomfeld’s support of the los angeles kings is unimpeachable

    posit from one-line-wonders presenting no background in hockey, allegiance to any team over any qualifying period, yet possessed of thinking processes appropriate to the hormone-driven high school confidential, are lured and toyed and worried by blomfeld …

    even as a weathered alley cat would play a nest of mice … fools all, owned body and soul by the superior intellect, when will they learn

    perhaps james creighton and his contemporaries in 1875 or their descendants through the present, are best qualified to weigh-in on the merits of what qualifies the true hockey fan of any team in the moment

    the rest should retreat to their holes before the big cat, eyes bright and fangs dripping, comes for dinner

      Multiple personality disorder on display yet again here on PHT. I have it all figured out, thanks to the support of fellow commenters and their sleuthing. Joey4id, Blomfeld, Muckleflugga, and Slysipops are the same guy. I know we have said it before, but we have seen posts from 3 of the 4 on this board, it will be only a matter of time before Blommer shows up. Although he tries to change up his delivery just enough, his punctuation gives him away.

      Remember that soup can idiot a few years back and how PHT was able to block him? I think we need the Jason, Mike, and the boys just to do a quick check of the IP address for us. This would ultimately settle it as they could prove it is the same IP address for this clown. I’m not saying we ban this guy cuz his posts are entertaining, (except for Muckle, whose knack for writing novels full of drivel that no one cares to read has grown old and stale). I just want to bury the hatchet and have proof this is the same guy.

    • machosasquatcho - May 19, 2014 at 1:44 AM

    Would have been nice to win game 1.

    But a KINGS win in game 2 will be just fine.

    The KINGS out played the Blackhawks.

    Credit to Crawford for Keeping the Hawks in the lead while being outshot 17 to 6 in the 2nd.

    That was the game.

    No BAD goals given up by Quick. 2 goals of deflections (one double deflection) and Lazer on 3-1 by Toews.

    Crawford and Toews Save the Day for the Hawks.

    Time for Kopitar and Quick to do the same!!! (and avoid the 2-0 deficit from last year)

    GKG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A lot of suspicious trolls trying to connect BLOMFELD…SLYSI …JOEY4 and others as being one person with mult i screen names and accounts…… could it just be a way to cover their own multi-accounts …… or……. could it be just simple JEALOUSY as the guys are so with-it classy and probably very handsome men ? ……this team will try to see what the real answer is !……..

      as you can see ……these investigators go under one name………. but, THEY ARE ACTORS doing a famous part ! but all have been ladies choices for their looks ,style , intelligence, animal magnetic being , etc.etc. .actually my personal favorite is SEAN CONNERY ( his real name ) who i might add ,i have been told by multiple ladies that i resemble as i have matured , that being said i would hope that the reasons behind some of you GUYS connecting us, is not for the same reasons the LADIES connected the BOND MEN ! that would be scary !

    *** the following message is offered under the white flag of truce ***

    Happy ‘Queen Victoria Day’ to our friend Sly !!! :) :) :)

    You’re very welcome friend. Today here in Canada it’s Victoria Day, which of course is a statutory holiday in honor of the late great Queen Victoria, the longest serving British monarch @ 63 years and the ‘Mother of Confederation’ as we Canadians fondly refer to her. Her record still stands, though Elizabeth II is likely to soon break that if she can stay strong and healthy, God willing. Anyway, don’t worry about these freaks here going on about you, me, Joey, Flugga, Valois, Solutions, etc, all being the same person. I put it down to pure jealousy, which in itself is pretty childish when you think about it eh ? You know, when I first came here to PHT in January 2012 as the ‘lone’ voice of LA Kings Nation, this same type of ‘jealous’ people were calling me a demented old man, a stupid kid, a raving lunatic, a primitive cave dweller, a ‘gutless’ chicken whose neck would be wrung, etc. Well then, in the words of Sir Winston Churchill … “some chicken … some neck !” :)

    Anyway, it’s good to hear you’re a ‘lady’s man’ like me ! Good times ! In my life, the one celebrity who I’ve always been likened to by the gals is Kevin Costner, who by the way is a pretty good actor. Stay thirsty my friend ! :)
