Marian Hossa hasn’t had a whole lot of room to roam during the Blackhawks’ series against the Kings.
When he got some Thursday night, the veteran winger wasted no time to fire the puck past goaltender Jonathan Quick for the winning goal in the Hawks’ 3-2 victory over the Kings in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals at Staples Center.
The triumph gave the Hawks a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series that continues with Game 5 on Saturday night at the United Center. Pregame is at 6:50 p.m. on 720 WGN and wgnradio.com.
Bryan Bickell had a goal and an assist and Patrick Kane also scored to provide the offense for netminder Corey Crawford, who outdueled Quick to put the Hawks on the brink of a Stanley Cup Final berth.
