LOS ANGELES-The Blackhawks bounced back from a three games to one deficit against the Red Wings in the playoffs last year. They'll have to do it again this time against the Kings. The Blackhawks fell into that hole Monday night by losing 5-2. It's their third straight loss in the series.

The Kings jumped on the Blackhawks with three goals in the first period by Jake Muzzin, Marian Gaborik and Dustin Brown. Another goal by the Kings in the second period made it 4-0.

The Blackhawks came back with goals by Brian Bickell and Brendan Saad, but it was not a stellar night for the Hawks. They went 0-for-3 on the power play. They're now scoreless on seven power play chances over the last two games.

Corey Crawford allowed four goals while turning away 16 shots.

Game five will be played Wednesday night at the United Center at 7:00.
