According to TSN on Saturday, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Jeff Carter of London, Ontario led the Kings in scoring with three points as the Los Angeles Kings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 in game three of the Western Conference Final in the 2014 National Hockey League Stanley Cup playoffs. With the victory, the Kings take a 2-1 series lead.

Carter's first point was an assist on a goal by Slava Voynov on the power play at 6:16 of the first period. Voynov's goal tied the score at one goal apiece with Canadian Olympic gold medalist Drew Doughty, also of London, Ontario, notching a second assist.

Carter then tied the game at two goals apiece at 8:08 of the second period on a goal from Tanner Pearson. Carter then registered an assist on a goal by Tyler Toffoli with 5:41 left in the second period to put the Kings up 3-2.

It would be a lead the Kings would not relinquish. Doughty put the Kings up 4-2 with 8:03 left in the third period to give Los Angeles strong insurance.

All three of Chicago's goals came from Canadian Olympic gold medalists. Jonathan Toews scored twice and Patrick Sharp scored once. Toews and Sharp are each from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Doughty and Toews won a gold medal for Canada in men's hockey at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. Carter and Sharp won a gold medal for Canada at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Game four of the series will take place Monday night in southern California. The Western Conference Final is a battle of the Stanley Cup champion the last two years. The Kings won in 2012 and the Blackhawks won in 2013.
