Alec Martinez's goal lifts the Kings to the championship for the second time in three seasons.
Los Angeles improved to 7-0 in elimination games with its third Game 7 win on the road this postseason with the 5-4 overtime victory in Chicago.
Patrick Kane skated to a patch of open ice near the painted Stanley Cup logo and fired a long, low shot at the Los Angeles net, hoping to hit an invisible hole.
Kane set up Duncan Keith's tying goal with 8:26 left before scoring the winner with 3:45 to play, propelling the Blackhawks to a 4-3 victory over the Kings in Game 6 on Friday night.
Patrick Kane managed just one assist in the first four games of the Western Conference finals. The Los Angeles Kings took all time and space away from Chicago's goal-scoring star while pushing the Blackhawks to the brink of elimination.
Marian Gaborik took a momentary break from the usual businesslike atmosphere in the Kings' dressing room and allowed himself one moment to marvel at what Los Angeles has accomplished this spring.
Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson are among the few Los Angeles Kings who don't have a Stanley Cup ring from two years ago.
Jeff Carter had a goal and two assists, Tyler Toffoli scored the tiebreaking goal late in the second period, and the Kings beat Chicago 4-3 on Saturday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals.
Corey Crawford and Jonathan Quick both realize that even a Stanley Cup ring doesn't protect a goalie from criticism after a bad game.
Jonathan Toews and the Chicago Blackhawks had plenty of questions after they had a goal disallowed in Game 1 of the Western Conference final.
Corey Crawford is playing so well right now that nothing seems to bother him. When the Chicago Blackhawks had a goal waved off in the second period Sunday, Crawford picked up the slack for his disappointed teammates.
Corey Crawford made 25 saves, Jonathan Toews had a big goal in the third period and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1.
When playoff pressure is at its most intense, almost nobody in recent hockey history has handled it better than Justin Williams, Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings.
After claiming Southern California supremacy with another Game 7 victory, the Kings are headed to their third straight Western Conference finals with their eyes on another Stanley Cup title.
After conquering almost every conceivable obstacle in the Stanley Cup playoffs over the last few years, the pressure of an elimination game doesn't bother the Los Angeles Kings.
"They created some chances," said Quick, who has won 25 playoff games and the Conn Smythe Trophy in the last two years. "They got the bounces, and they get the two at the end of the first where both guys are trying to shoot the puck and they fan on it and it's an open net for them. I am a believer that you make your own luck, so obviously they made their own luck there."
