Final: Blackhawks 3, Kings 2

Mike Richards scored two power-play goals off assists from Drew Doughty, but the Kings’ rally from a three-goal deficit Sunday afternoon came up short and they fell to the NHL-leading Chicago Blackhawks 3-2. The ice was tilted in the KIngs’ direction for most of the final period, but their listless play in the first two frames proved costly. The Kings’ two-game winning streak ended and the defending Stanley Cup champions fell to 5-6-2. The Blackhawks are a leaue-best 12-0-3, the NHL’s best start since the Ducks began the 2006-07 season 12-0-4 en route to winning the Cup. The Kings’ three-game trip continues Tuesday against the Edmonton Oilers.
