Chicago • Jeff Carter scored three of Los Angeles’ six straight goals, and the Kings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 6-2 on Wednesday night to leave the Western Conference final tied at one game apiece.

Drew Doughty and Tyler Toffoli also scored in Los Angeles’ five-goal third period as the Kings became the first visiting team to win in Chicago this postseason. The Blackhawks won their first seven home playoff games this year, but the Kings skated right by Chicago after the defending Stanley Cup champions took a 2-0 lead in the second period.

Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Saturday in L.A.

Nick Leddy and Ben Smith scored for Chicago, and Corey Crawford made 25 saves.

The Blackhawks were in position for their fourth consecutive win before Doughty drove a slap shot by Crawford to tie it at 2 just 1:37 into the third. Carter then had another power-play score at 4:04 that gave Los Angeles the lead.

Once the Kings got going, they appeared to get almost anything they wanted.
