CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago's top line is too much for the Boston Bruins to handle.
Patrick Kane scored twice in the Chicago Blackhawks' 3-1 victory on Saturday night, which brings them within a game of their second Stanley Cup title in four years. Since Chicago coach Joel Quenneville reconfigured his top line before Game 4, reuniting Kane with Jonathan Toews, the duo has combined for four goals and seven points.
And most important, two wins.
But Quenneville may have to do some tinkering with his top line again for Game 6 on Monday night in Boston. Toews did not play a single shift in the final period, and it's not clear when he'll be available again.
