The Colorado Avalanche own the top pick in the NHL draft and a whole lot of options.
Marian Hossa scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and the Blackhawks moved to the brink of the Stanley Cup finals with a 3-2 victory Thursday night in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, handing the Kings their first home loss since March 23.
If the Chicago Blackhawks are going to end the Los Angeles Kings' perfect postseason on home ice in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, they'll have to do it without their top defenseman.
Bryan Bickell and Michal Handzus scored on consecutive shots in the second period, and Chicago chased goalie Jonathan Quick on its way to a 4-2 victory over the Kings in Game 2 on Sunday night.
The 22-year-old center scored two power-play goals in the third period to lift the Islanders to a 5-2 win over Washington, ending the Capitals' three-game winning streak.
Jonathan Quick and Martin Brodeur hugged and exchanged a few private words in the Stanley Cup finals handshake line.

Although Mike Richards and a couple of his Los Angeles teammates might have information that could help the Vancouver Canucks out of a daunting playoff deficit, don't expect them to give it up.

The company that built the stage ahead of last summer's deadly Indiana State Fair collapse appeared to be indifferent to safety standards and fair officials were too slow to order an evacuation of the grounds, the state Department of Labor said Wednesday.
"Playoff hockey, you put it on the net as much as you can," Carter said of his memorable goal. "I tried to turn and get it to the net. I actually tried to hit Penns [Penner] backdoor first there and kept going around the net and it kind of popped out to me. I had someone's stick in the lane there and just tried to get out of the way and get it on net."
"I think is by far the biggest, for sure. I think it's my first playoff overtime goal," Carter said. "It's a huge win, it's a big win for the team."
