      Blackhawks beat Kings 5-4 in 2OT

      Michal Handzus scored at 2:04 of the second overtime, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-4 in Game 5 on Wednesday night to stay alive in the Western Conference final.

      Brandon Saad made a nice pass to the middle to Handzus, who beat goalie Jonathan Quick with a backhander for his second goal of the playoffs. \

      Handzus celebrated by jumping against boards behind the net as the sellout crowd of 21,871 roared.

      Saad had a goal and two assists for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who stopped a three-game losing streak.

      Patrick Kane set a playoff career high with four assists.

      Game 6 is Friday night in Los Angeles.
