a huge financial advantage over their domestic rivals. Aberdeen are now just three points behind Deilas si

CHICAGO -- It was a wrist shot for Andrew Shaw, who leaned back and yelled after his first-period score. Adidas Matt Dumba Jersey . Brent Seabrook got in on the action, and Bryan Bickell and Michal Handzus added two more goals on consecutive shots in the second. And just like that, Jonathan Quick was gone. The Chicago Blackhawks chased the Los Angeles Kings standout goalie during an impressive display in the opening two periods of a 4-2 victory Sunday night in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals. "Its a high-speed game. If we use our speed, well be all right," Shaw said. "We played our game. Thats the difference. The guys played good. We all competed for each other. We did everything we needed to do, keeping it deep in the zone." Patrick Sharp and Brandon Saad added two assists apiece as the Blackhawks grabbed a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series with their fifth consecutive victory. Corey Crawford made 29 saves in another solid performance, drawing chants of "Co-rey! Co-rey!" from the capacity crowd at the United Center. "We went through a little spurt there in the last series where we were doing the right things but the pucks werent going in," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said. "So now were getting the results we want. We can do what were doing more often. We can do it better as well in the next few games." Game 3 is Tuesday night at Los Angeles, where the Kings have won 14 consecutive games, dating to the regular season. The Kings also lost their first two games of the playoffs at St. Louis before winning four straight to eliminate the Blues in the first round. Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli scored for Los Angeles, but the Kings struggled to score without Mike Richards, who was scratched because of an undisclosed upper body injury. The defending Stanley Cup champions have 29 goals in 15 post-season games. "Youve got to find a way," Quick said. "They did their job at home. Weve got to go home and do our job now." Richards, who leads the Kings with 10 playoff points, was sidelined after taking a big hit from Dave Bolland in the final minutes of the Blackhawks 2-1 victory on Saturday. Kings coach Darryl Sutter said Richards was "fine" a couple of hours before the game, but the centre was scratched from the lineup after participating in the pregame warmups. "He was fine today, then I think just once his blood got pumping tonight, the adrenaline got going, there were symptoms," Sutter said. "I went in right after warmup, he was sitting there and I said, Unless youre 100 per cent, youre not playing." Los Angeles forward Brad Richardson and defenceman Drew Doughty gingerly skated off at separate points of the first period, but both returned to the ice. The series took on a more physical tone in the second game in two days -- a rarity in the playoffs brought on by The Rolling Stones tour. The top-seeded Blackhawks also won the series opener in each of the first two rounds, but they dropped three in a row following their Game 1 victory against Detroit in the conference semifinals. There was no such letdown this time. "It was frustrating early on, that series against Detroit, but I think we learned a lot there," defenceman Duncan Keith said. Shaw got Chicago off to a fast start, taking a nifty pass from Viktor Stalberg and beating Quick on the glove side just 1:56 into the game. Marian Hossa set up Seabrook in the final minute for a low liner into the left corner of the net. The defenceman put the Blackhawks into this round with an overtime goal in Game 7 against Detroit on Wednesday. The Blackhawks added two more in the second, separated by just 2:09. Bickell scored a power-play goal on a rebound in front, and Handzus skated in and beat Quick to make it 4-0 at 9:20. "We gave them too many Grade-A scoring chances, and they capitalized," Kings defenceman Rob Scuderi said. "You cant give up those opportunities and expect your goalie to bail you out every single time." The crowd of 21,824 roared after Handzus second goal of the post-season, and cheered even louder when Quick skated off and was replaced by Jonathan Bernier. Quick, last years playoff MVP who had played every minute of this years playoffs, finished with 13 saves. "We had some nice shots. We had some high-quality stuff off the rush, as well, in that period," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "I still think thats going to be an ongoing challenge with him." Carter converted a one-timer at 18:57 of the second, and Toffoli netted a power-play goal with 1:02 left in the game, but that was it for the Kings. The Blackhawks killed three other power plays and have allowed just two goals in 47 attempts in the playoffs. Crawford was saluted by the crowd after he stopped Dustin Penner on a quality opportunity late in the second, and the chants resumed when he pulled Kings forward Kyle Clifford off Toews during a scrum with 8:45 left. "The guy grabbed him, got a couple free shots. I figured it was enough," Crawford said. "I just decided to go in there and grab his head." Crawford was one of the top goalies in the NHL during the lockout-shortened regular season, and he has carried that into the playoffs. He has allowed just one goal in four of his last six games. "Hes the guy we want in net back there," Sharp said. "Hes proven it in the past. Its nice to see him finally get the credit that he deserves." NOTES: Kings rookie D Jake Muzzin was scratched after playing in the first 14 post-season games. ... Crawford was 1-1 with a 3.54 goals-against average against Los Angeles during the regular season. Adidas Jared Spurgeon Jersey . -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. Adidas Chris Stewart Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday.Sky Sports pundit Andy Walker says its time for Celtic to part company with manager Ronny Deila following their 2-1 defeat to Aberdeen at Pittodrie. It was a miserable night for the Scottish champions, who have now suffered back-to-back defeats following their shock loss against Ross County in the Scottish League Cup semi-final last weekend.Celtics lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership was cut to three points as goals from Jonny Hayes and Simon Church earned Aberdeen a 2-1 victory and former player Walker says owner Dermot Desmond has a big decision to make over Deila, who claimed on Tuesday he has the boards backing. He told Sky Sports: I didnt see any reaction from the Celtic players today after the weekends defeat to Ross County.I didnt see any reaction during the game against Ross County and I didnt see any reaction when they went 2-0 down tonight and I think you can ignore what the Celtic board are saying.This is now a call for Dermot Desmond. If he has got his finger on the pulse of the Celtic support, who continually booed the players at the end of the game, then he will realise hes got a big decision to make. Ronny Deila admits Celtics 2-1 defeat to Aberdeen puts pressure on him Do you trust Ronny Deila to come up with the type of results that will not only get Celtic the title but a bit of success in Europe?If it was up to me I would change the manager tomorrow. Adidas Mikael Granlund Jersey. .Deila has been under pressure all season following his teams early exit from the Champions League against Malmo.Desmond has previously backed his manager, claiming the team is better than they were last season, but Walker says performances are not good enough for a team that has a huge financial advantage over their domestic rivals. Aberdeen are now just three points behind Deilas side He added: Celtic have a huge advantage in terms of resources and everything you want.How did they defend tonight? The amount of long balls that were played when Celtic were 2-0 down and they didnt go and compete for them.I know thats not down to the manager but the manager has to make the kind of changes and type of signings that can get Celtic success on the park and all of that is up for serious debate. Celtic captain Scott Brown battles with Jonny Hayes on Wednesday night Its not good enough and Celtic could well go on and secure the title but would you trust this manager to get you the type of results the Celtic supporters are looking for?I think if you have got your finger on the pulse of the Celtic support I think there is a growing number who dont buy into what Ronny Deila is continually saying.Theres no improvement, theres nothing special and theres no notable victories and I think as a Celtic manager that is what you have to come up with.
