LOS ANGELES (AP) —- Marian Hossa had two goals and an assist, Corey Crawford made 19 saves, and the Chicago Blackhawks crashed the Kings’ Stanley Cup championship celebration with a 5-2 victory over Los Angeles on Saturday.

Captain Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane each had a goal and an assist for the Blackhawks, who jumped to a 3-0 lead on Michael Frolik’s goal less than 15 minutes in. With superior speed and skill, Chicago ruined the party shortly after the Kings raised their first championship banner to the Staples Center rafters.

Rob Scuderi and Jordan Nolan scored and Jonathan Quick stopped 17 shots for the Kings, who returned every player from the first eighth-seeded playoff team to win the Stanley Cup.
