CHICAGO - Between the time the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 2010 and the time each player enjoyed his day with the trophy, their roster had already been broken up because of salary-cap problems. They kept their core but lost 10 regulars, mostly depth and grit players who were so vital to their success. Dustin Byfuglien, Kris Versteeg, Andrew Ladd and others were gone quickly, none of them easily replaced. Not until this season has General Manager Stan Bowman been able to reassemble as much depth and character, but the wait has been worth it. The Blackhawks' 3-2 victory over the Kings on Sunday improved their record to 12-0-3, tying them with the 1984-85 Edmonton Oilers for the second-longest streak without a regulation loss to start the season.

CHICAGO - There was the individual brilliance of Kings defenseman Drew Doughty and the signature grit and persistence of captain Dustin Brown. That combination propelled the Kings to a course-correcting 5-4 victory against the league's top team, the Chicago Blackhawks, on Monday night at the United Center. Brown's game-winner came, via his own rebound, with 1 minute 27 seconds remaining. It was his 12th goal of the season. The Kings broke out of a goal-scoring drought - which had extended through two losses and another period, a total of 150 minutes and 35 seconds - to record their biggest win of the season.
