It is a tale of two former Conn Smythe winners, and center Colin Fraser had a front seat for both performances. In one corner, Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, the most valuable player of last season's playoffs. Then there's the winner from three years ago, center Jonathan Toews, Chicago's captain. Fraser won the Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2010 and the Kings in 2012. The Kings like to talk about how Quick despises giving up goals even in a run-of-the-mill practice. It doesn't matter if he had almost no chance on the play.

SOCHI, Russia - Sidney Crosby again proved that he's a big-time, big-game scorer. Crosby, held without a goal in Canada's first five games at the Sochi Olympics hockey tournament, scored on a breakaway in the second period of Sunday's gold medal game against Sweden to cement Canada's 3-0 victory at the Bolshoy Ice dome and clinch its second consecutive Olympic title. Crosby scored the “golden goal” at Vancouver in 2010, scoring in overtime against the U.S. This time, Canada didn't need to go to sudden-death play to become the first repeat men's Olympic champion since the old Soviet Union teams won in 1984 and 1988.

SOCHI, Russia - Rugged defenseman Niklas Kronwall, captain of undefeated gold-medal finalist Sweden, plays in the NHL for the Detroit Red Wings and Coach Mike Babcock, who has guided undefeated Canada to Sunday's hockey finale. So Kronwall knows how effective a leader Babcock can be. "Whenever you're in a meeting," Kronwall said, "he always seems to find the right things to say and gets the guys extremely motivated. " Babcock has done a fine job in motivating his superstars to buy into a demanding defensive style.

ST. PAUL, Minn. ? Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews each scored in the second period, and the Chicago Blackhawks stretched their winning streak to a season-high five games with a 4-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Monday night. Tomas Kopecky also scored in the second, Marian Hossa secured the game with a short-handed goal with 1:52 left, and the surging Blackhawks crept a little bit closer to last year's Stanley Cup championship form. The Wild paid for a flat first two periods and lost to one of its primary competitors in the crowded Western Conference race.

Jonathan Toews was back and so was the firepower that made the Chicago Blackhawks one of the NHL's most dangerous teams in the season's first two weeks. Toews, who had been out with a concussion since Vancouver's Willie Mitchell leveled him on Oct. 21, followed Troy Brouwer's third-period power-play goal with one of his own 3:31 later and the Blackhawks went on to defeat the Kings, 4-1, on Monday night. The Blackhawks lost three of the six games Toews missed. It had been nearly four weeks since they had scored more than three times in a game, and they hadn't put in more than one power-play goal since the season's second game.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chris Campoli scored a power-play with 6:34 remaining and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Phoenix Coyotes, 2-1, on Sunday night. Campoli, acquired from Ottawa on Feb. 28, scored his first goal for Chicago when he took a cross-crease pass from Jonathan Toews and put a shot into the vacated left side of the net before Ilya Bryzgalov, covering the right side, could recover. Duncan Keith also scored for the Blackhawks. Eric Belanger scored for the Coyotes, whose five-game winning streak was snapped.

Records: Kings 27-22-12; Blackhawks 33-22-7 Update: Rookie defenseman Slava Voynov returns to the Kings after a short stint with their minor league affiliate in Manchester, N.H. Voynov's emergence was one of the reasons the Kings were able to move defenseman Jack Johnson in the Jeff Carter deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets. "If Slava is going to become a top-four guy, it doesn't do him any good to be in and out of the lineup," Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks broke out a familiar cliche when they arrived back home  Friday. Leading the Kings three games to one in the Western Conference finals, they promised to play Game 5 on Saturday as if they were behind. "You know the other team's going to come at you hard," captain Jonathan Toews said. "But it's up to you to motivate yourself. " Nothing new there. Toews did talk some strategy, however, saying his team has a formula for playing hard. "We keep saying in the locker room that we need all four lines and no one has to go out there and try to do too much," he said.

The last time the Blackhawks headed to Boston they were in search of a victory to regain home-ice advantage. This time, they're after a much bigger prize. The Blackhawks took a giant step toward capturing their second Stanley Cup in four seasons Saturday when they topped the Bruins, 3-1, in Game 5 of the Final at the United Center. The victory gave the Blackhawks a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series with Game 6 on Monday night at TD Garden in Boston. Patrick Kane, drafted No. 1 overall by the Blackhawks six years ago to the day, had two goals, and Dave Bolland provided an empty-netter while goaltender Corey Crawford earned the victory with 24 saves.

Jonathan Toews and Zdeno Chara were pushing each other for position in front of the net as the Blackhawks' Brent Seabrook scored the winning goal in overtime in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night. As the Blackhawks escaped TD Garden with a 6-5 overtime victory and a 2-2 series tie, Toews added a verbal shove, captain to captain. "There's certain ways you can expose him," Toews said of the Bruins' 6-foot-9 defenseman. "I think the dumpings that we made were going to his side.

CHICAGO -- The champions weren't about to skate off quietly into the night. And the Stanley Cup champion Kings did all they could to prolong it as long as possible, on guts and fumes, as they lost, 4-3, in double overtime in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Saturday night at United Center. It was the longest game in Kings history and it took the completion of Patrick Kane's hat trick to end it at 11:40 into the second overtime. The last hat trick to clinch a berth in the finals was in 1993 - the Kings' Wayne Gretzky against Toronto.

CHICAGO - What's a playoff series without a little bit - or a lot - of animosity? The Kings were unhappy about a huge hit delivered by Chicago center Dave Bolland against center Mike Richards  on Saturday during the third period of the Blackhawks' 2-1 victory in the opener of the teams'  Western Conference Finals playoff series. The Blackhawks were just as angry over a hard hit by Kings captain Dustin Brown on Chicago captain Jonathan Toews in the final minute of the game, as the Blackhawks played keep-away during a power play.
