Patrick Kane comes through with a hat trick by scoring the game-winning goal in the second overtime with 8:20 left to eliminate the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.

Kane, who finishes with a hat trick, and captain Jonathan Toews connect on their third breakaway of the second overtime to beat Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick to his glove side.

There were nine hits in the first 10 minutes, but only three shots.

Then Kane ended things after Toews skated onto a loose puck high in the Kings' zone and had only one defender to beat. He slips a perfect pass to Kane, who one-times a shot into the net.

Almost two minutes into the period, Kings center Anze Kopitar and left wing Justin Williams have a give-and-go opportunity that Kopitar slips just wide of the goal when he found himself uncontested in front of the goal.

After returning from his one-game suspension, Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith has logged more than 38 minutes of ice time, while Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi is approaching his 36th minute.

One of those shots came from Chicago defenseman Nick Leddy with 13:03 left in the period. Leddy let loose of a slap shot from the point that Quick gloved in traffic.

Here's more play-by-play action from earlier in the game:

Overtime (Kings 3, Blackhawks 3)

One wasn’t enough, so Game 5 goes to a second overtime.

The first 10 minutes of overtime flew with only one stoppage, but the second 10 minutes was broken up by icings and neutral zone inefficiency.

Chicago right wing Viktor Stalberg has a brief opening with 5:32 left but Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick squeezes the pads to stop a low wrist shot.

Blackhawks defender Brent Seabrook almost knocks home his second winner in overtime of the postseason with a shot he sends just wide of the goal with a little more than four minutes left.

Kings center Trevor Lewis has a chance on goal with a waist-high shot he sends shortside, but Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford puts a glove to it with 2:24 left.


The Kings see their playoff lives flash before their eyes when Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews weaves between three defenders and sends a pass to a flanking Patrick Kane, who can’t connect with the pass just more than two minutes into overtime.

The Kings take the first four shots in overtime, dominating play for long stretches.

Kings forward Jeff Carter has his share of chances in the extra period, working behind the net to send a flurry of passes to the front of the goal to pressure Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford.

With 10:06 to go in overtime, Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin fires a shot at Crawford, who makes a great reactionary glove save.

Immediately after that, Toews heads to the Chicago locker room with what seems to be an equipment issue.
