'Hawks win Game 5 over Bruins, 3-1

CHICAGO (AP) - Patrick Kane scored two goals, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins 3-1 to take a 3-2 lead in the Stanley Cup finals on Saturday night.

Dave Bolland added an empty netter from center ice with 13.6 seconds left, and the Blackhawks moved within a win of their second championship in four years.

They'll try to wrap it up at Boston on Monday.

In a series that's seen three games go to overtime, this one had its tense moments and both teams were without star players down the stretch.

Boston's Patrice Bergeron skated gingerly off the ice in the second period and was taken by ambulance to a hospital with an undisclosed injury, a huge blow for the Bruins.

Chicago's Jonathan Toews, meanwhile, sat out the third period after getting clobbered by Johnny Boychuk late in the second.

The Blackhawks still had enough to get by, with Kane scoring in each of the first two periods. Now Chicago is one win away from the title, while the Bruins will need to force a seventh game if they're going to keep their hopes alive for a second Cup in three seasons.

Boston's Zdeno Chara cut it to one less than four minutes into the third after David Krejci centered the puck from behind the net. Chara, who has one league's hardest shots, unleashed a bullet from the left circle that sailed past Corey Crawford's glove to make it 2-1 with 16:20 remaining.

The Bruins nearly tied it with 2:20 left when Crawford stopped Jaromir Jagr after the puck careened around in front of the net, but the Blackhawks hung on.
