LOS ANGELES (AP) A lot of things would have been predicted when the struggling Chicago Blackhawks found themselves down by two goals in the third period against the Los Angeles Kings.Just about everything John Klingberg Jersey , but what did happen.The Blackhawks, who had lost seven consecutive road games and 11 of their last 13 overall, rallied with four third-periods goals to stun the Kings 5-3 on Saturday.Jonathan Toews broke a tie on a power-play goal with 1:58 left and a Blackhawks team out of the playoff race shocked a Kings team that had won three straight.”It’s right in front of us that we can be the spoilers,” Toews said. ”Play loose, play smart and work hard the way we did tonight. We can put pressure on teams like them and make them make mistakes.”Chicago tied it with 5:36 to go when Los Angeles’ Derek Forbort failed to clear the puck in front of the net, instead sending it right to Vinnie Hinostroza for a shot past goalie past Jonathan Quick.Then with Los Angeles’ Tanner Pearson off for hooking, Toews beat Quick for his 17th of the season.Patrick Kane added an empty-net goal for Chicago, Jordan Oesterle and Artem Anisimov also scored, and Anton Forsberg made 29 saves.The Kings scored all their goals in the second period, Pearson, Alec Martinez and Alex Iafallo all finding the net. Quick stopped 20 shots.The Kings were called for four penalties in the third, including a double penalty on Drew Doughty for hooking and then unsportsmanlike conduct.”It’s pretty obvious, right?” Kings coach John Stevens said. ”Let’s not deny the elephant in the room. Totally undisciplined play today. We let them back in the hockey game. It’s totally unacceptable.”You’re part of a team and everything should have the best interest of the hockey team. We put ourselves in an undisciplined situation in the third period and it ended up costing us.”The Blackhawks pulled within one on the 4-minute power play in third period, when Anisimov fired in his 19th goal off a rebound of a Toews’ shot. It was his second goal in as many games for Anisimov.”He’s always in the middle of the ice and that’s where goalies have the toughest time trying to stop it,” said Chicago coach Joel Quenneville. ”It’s a high quality chance. It’s not easy to get there, and he gets rewarded.”The Kings are just one point ahead of the rival Anaheim Ducks for the third playoff spot in the West. The Ducks host the Blackhawks on Sunday.”It definitely doesn’t hurt your confidence when you can find ways to win games coming from behind on the road against a team like them Mattias Janmark Jersey ,” Toews said. ”Hopefully it’s the type of thing we can keep going with that same kind of effort.”For a struggling, injury-riddled Blackhawks team, it was a much needed victory.”The disappointing thing these last few months is we know we’re underachieving and we know we’re not scratching the surface as far as our potential goes,” Toews said.”This was huge,” Hinostroza said. ”That’s a great team over there, and says a lot about our team in here to go down like that and come back. It feels really good.”NOTES: Kings forward Dustin Brown picked up his 300th career assist. … Chicago’s last road win came on Jan. 30th in Vancouver, 2-1. … Pearson’s goal was his second in two games, after not scoring in his previous 15 games. … The Blackhawks had another goal waived in the first period for goalie interference.UP NEXTBlackhawks: At Anaheim on Sunday.Kings: Host Washington on Thursday night.— BRANDON, Fla. (AP) Jon Cooper is confident the Tampa Bay Lightning will be fine.Experience tells the coach and his players they shouldn’t be overly concerned about losing the opening game of the Eastern Conference finals at home.The way the Washington Capitals are playing, though, it could be more difficult to rebound from a shabby performance this time.Game 2 is Sunday night, and Cooper expects the Atlantic Division winners to be at their best.”It’s unfortunate how we played a couple of these Game 1s in the last couple of rounds, (and) dug ourselves a small hole this series,” the coach said after a workout Saturday at the team’s suburban practice facility.”I guess the positive side is we’ve been here before, so we’ve seen this. But we can’t keep playing with fire and dropping these Game 1s, which we’ve done. All of a sudden you’ve thrown home ice advantage back at them. Now you’ve put pressure on yourself. You got to go win games on the road Radek Faksa Jersey , which you have to do anyway in the playoffs, but your margin for error gets smaller and smaller. We’re really going to need a good effort (Sunday).”The Capitals won the opener 4-2, ending an eight-game playoff losing skid to Tampa Bay dating to the 2003 postseason.Alex Ovechkin, T.J. Oshie, Jay Beagle and Lars Eller scored for Washington, while rejuvenated goaltender Braden Holtby stopped 19 shots to help the Caps improve to 6-1 on the road this postseason.The Lightning didn’t take solace in breaking through for a pair of third-period goals.”We dissected the game a little bit,” Cooper said. ”There were so many good things we’ve done in two rounds of hockey that I think if you bottled up all the bad things in those first 10 games it would be about half of what we did in that one game last night.”You fueled the fire of a good team, and that’s what Washington is. I thought a lot of their opportunities we just handed to them, and a lot of our opportunities were stomped out just by our not sticking to our plan of what’s worked.”The Capitals, in the conference finals for the first time in the Ovechkin era, said they can’t afford a drop-off in performance.Beating two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh gave them momentum heading into the series.Coach Barry Trotz, mindful that Tampa Bay lost Game 1 of its second-round series 6-2 to Boston only to strom back and win four straight games, reiterated it won’t be easy to build off the Caps’ success in the opener.”You get a little bit of confidence, obviously,” Trotz said at the team hotel Saturday. ”At the same time we’ve got to realize Tampa Bay is going to have some desperation in their game. And, we better have some desperation in our game.”Andrei Vasilevskiy Authentic Stephen Johns Jersey , Tampa Bay’s All-Star goaltender, yielded four goals on 25 shots in two periods after entering the series with an 8-2 record, 2.20 goals-against average and .927 save percentage through two rounds.The Lightning are confident they’ll play better in front of him in Game 2. The Caps expect the goaltender to bounce back, too.”One thing you got to remember, this is not the NCAA basketball tournament, it’s not one and done,” Cooper said. ”It’s the best of seven, so you get a chance to make some adjustments to improve your game and really get a look at the other team. … It’s hard to play flawless hockey all the way through.”The Caps don’t expect the Lightning to panic, either.”Obviously, it doesn’t matter what we did in Game 1 when it comes to Game 2,” Beagle said.”I would imagine there will be a really good push back from a really good hockey team. We’re going to have to stay focused, not get ahead of ourselves,” Oshie concluded. ”I can’t imagine we’re going to see the same Tampa team we saw in the first period the rest of this series.”—
