The Kings tied the game at 2 at 17:22 of the first period on Williams' seventh goal of the playoffs.

But the Blackhawks came right back 12 seconds later on forward Patrick Sharp's fourth goal of the playoffs, putting Chicago back ahead 3-2.

It became a brand new game at 10:31 of the second period when Kings center Tyler Toffoli scored his seventh goal off a give-and-go from defenseman Matt Greene, tying it at 3-all.

Sharp then scored his second goal of the game at 18:25 of the second period on the power play, putting Chicago back ahead 4-3 heading into the third period.

"I think everybody knows it's tough to win a Stanley Cup, whether you won it the previous year or not," Sharp said. "Tonight was two great teams with a lot of guys who have gone the distance and won Stanley Cups before. I think both sides had that experience and it was a pretty entertaining game."

Added teammate and defenseman Duncan Keith, "I think it's tough to repeat, but it's tough to win in the first place, right? Like I said, it's Game 7 in the Western Conference final, round three, in overtime and it's one shot, one goal."

Game 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final are Wednesday and Saturday in Los Angeles before moving to New York for Game 3 on June 9 and Game 4 on June 11.
