Highlights: Blackhawks tip Kings 5-4 in double overtime

By Chris Kuc

The defending Stanley Cup champions are still breathing and chasing history.

The Blackhawks willed themselves to a 5-4 victory in double overtime over the Kings in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals Wednesday night before a raucous crowd of 21,871 at the United Center to keep their dream of two consecutive titles alive.

Against the relentless Kings, the Hawks got a goal from Michal Handzus in the second OT to stave off elimination and send the best-of-seven series back to the West Coast for Game 6 Friday with Los Angeles holding a 3-2 advantage.
