LOS ANGELES -- Winger Patrick Kane scored two goals and added an assist and goaltender Corey Crawford made 26 saves as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals.

In a see-saw third period that saw the teams score two goals each and trade leads, Kane gained possession on the right boards and drifted to the high slot for a wrist shot that beat Los Angeles goaltender Jonathan Quick through traffic for the game-winning goal at 16:15. It was Kane's second goal of the game and eighth of the playoffs that sends the series back to Chicago for a decisive Game 7 on Sunday.

Down 2-1 entering the third period, the Kings rallied to take a short-lived lead with two goals in a 2:06 span. Defenseman Drew Doughty's fourth goal of the playoffs knotted the game at 2 at 5:32. Doughty gained possession at the Chicago blue line and beat Crawford with a wrist shot helped by a screen from center Mike Richards.

Los Angeles took the lead on a power-play goal by defenseman Alec Martinez at 7:28 of the third. Martinez wrist shot from 35 feet eluded Crawford with Doughty drawing the lone assist.

Chicago fought back to tie the game on Duncan Keith's fourth goal of the playoffs at 11:34 of the final frame. Keith's wrist from 38 feet beat Quick to his stick side with Kane and center Andrew Shaw drawing assists.

The Kings opened the scoring on winger Dwight King's goal at 17:03 of the first period. Kane tied the game at 1 at 1:12 of the second period, one-timing a pass from center Jonathon Toews from the slot past Quick. Just 1:37 the Blackhawks took their first lead of the game when winger Ben Smith drove behind the net and played the puck off Quick's skates and in.
