Blackhawks blow early lead, lose Game 2 to Kings 6-2

The Blackhawks finally cracked at home.

After winning eight straight Stanley Cup playoff games at the United Center this season, the Blackhawks allowed the Kings to leave Game 2 of the Western Conference finals as a rare victor in Chicago. The 6-2 Kings victory against the Blackhawks tied the series 1-1 as play shifts to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Saturday.
