Alec Martinez scored 5:47 into overtime of Game Seven, giving the Los Angeles Kings a 5-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, capturing the Western Conference crown. Martinez doesnt play a lot, playing more than 18 minutes once in the past 11 games, but hes been remarkably effective. In the series against the Blackhawks, during 5-on-5 play, Martinez was on the ice for 115 shot attempts for and 74 against (60.8%). He now has four goals and nine points in 21 games during this years playoffs. Mr. Game Seven, Justin Williams, contributed a goal, as well as setting up Martinez for the winner. Williams now has 18 points in the postseason, ranking fifth, behind Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter, Patrick Kane and Marian Gaborik. Over the past three years, Williams ranks fourth in playoff scoring, with 42 points in 59 games. Kings rookie RW Tyler Toffoli continued to produce, picking up a goal and an assist in Game Seven, giving him six points (4 G, 2 A) in the series. He was also strong in terms of puck possession, on the ice for 59.9% (112 for, 75 against) of 5-on-5 shot attempts. Kings captain Dustin Brown had a productive game, with two assists giving him six points (2 G, 4 A) in the past four games after he had one point in the previous eight. Something about playing with Anze Kopitar works for Brown. Brown also registered a game-high eight hits and 13 shot attempts in Game Seven. Kings LW Dwight King had a couple of assists in Game Seven, giving him five points (1 G, 4 A) in the series. He had three points in 14 games through the first two rounds of the series. Chicago jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and it looked like their big guns were firing. Kane had a couple of assists, giving him 10 points in the past four games and a team-leading 20 points in 19 playoff games. In the last six seasons, there have been two players to score at least 14 points in four different playoff years; one is Kane, the other is teammate Marian Hossa. Kanes linemate, LW Brandon Saad, had a goal and an assist in Game Seven, giving him nine points (4 G, 5 A) in the series. In the last six games, Saad was on for 62.1% of the 5-on-5 shot attempts. Blackhawks LW Patrick Sharp was dangerous in Game Seven, more than most if not all of this years playoff games, scoring a pair of goals. It was a rough postseason for Sharp, who finished with 10 points (5 G, 5 A) in 19 games and was on the wrong end of the possession game, 39.4% of the 5-on-5 shot attempts in the series. This was quite a series, played at a very high level, yet undermined at times by subpar goaltending. Blackhawks G Corey Crawford had an .878 save percentage, stopping 187 of 213 shots, in the series. Three of the goals against in the series-deciding game were the result of ineffective blocked shots by Chicago defenders, so blame cant be pinned solely on Crawford, but its tough to win stopping under 88% of the shots faced. Its not as though Jonathan Quick was dramatically better in the Kings net. Quick had an .889 save percentage (184 saves on 207 shots against), leaving him with a .906 save percentage in this years playoffs. The series was also a survival of the fittest and it was clear, in Game Seven, that there were individual players that couldnt be entrusted with ice time. For the Blackhawks, that included LW Brandon Bollig and RW Kris Versteeg, both on for zero shot attempts for and six against in limited ice time, under four minutes each, while C Michal Handzus was only on for two for and nine against in a little under seven minutes. The Kings had their own liabilities. LW Kyle Clifford was on the ice for zero shot attempts for and 10 against, in less than three minutes of ice time, and RW Trevor Lewis was only slightly better (three attempts for, 12 against) in under six minutes of ice time. They were the only Kings forwards to go scoreless in the series. It has been anything but easy for the Kings, who have won three straight seven-game series, but they will be favoured against the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Final. As the leagues top puck possession team, its fair for the Kings to hold favoured status, but they will need Quick to play better than he has in the playoffs -- and most definitely better than he did against Chicago -- in order to win the Cup. Theres more to break down before that series starts, so lets give credit to the Kings for their hard-fought win over Chicago. It was a memorable series played between two outstandin teams and the victors ought to be applauded.

Top-ranked Florida State (13-0) was the only team to get through the regular season unbeaten, and the Seminoles did it in dominating fashion.SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Joshua Houston and his teammates from the west side of Chicago arent ready to go home just yet. Pierce Jones and Trey Hondras homered, and Houston hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the fifth inning as Chicagos Jackie Robinson West beat Cumberland, Rhode Island, 8-7 on Monday night in an elimination game at the Little League World Series. "It means a lot because its been 31 years," said Marquis Jackson, who had two hits and scored twice. "It shows anything is possible." The Jackie Robinson West team, representing the Great Lakes, is comprised of all African-American players and is making its first appearance in the World Series since 1983. It will play Pearland, Texas, on Tuesday night. "I dont think they really grasp whats going on," manager Darold Butler said. "It doesnt matter who theyre playing. This teams a special team." Jones led off the game with his fourth homer of the World Series, a solo shot to centre field, to get Chicago rolling, his teammates embracing him when he crossed home plate. Cumberland responded with two runs in the bottom of the first. CJ Davock singled to left and Addison Kopack walked. Tyler Provost followed with an RBI single to centre and Kopack scored when the cutoff throw sailed past Houston at third. Hondras hit a towering three-run homer to centre in the second to stake Chicago to a three-run lead and Houstons RBI single in the top of the third made it 6-2. Undaunted, Cumberland laced six straight hits to spark a five-run rally in the bottom of the third to take a 7-6 lead. Kopack had a run-scoring single, Provost laced a two-run single to left, and Trey Thibeault lined a shot down the left-field line that just cleared the fence for a two-run homer. Hondras tried to spark Chicago in the fourth, but he was thrown out at third trying to stretch his line drive that bounced off the left-centre field wall. Chicago protested, but the call was upheld, although a replay showed the fielder missed the tag. In the fifth, lefty-hitting Darion Radcliffs hard RBI single to left tied it for Cumberland before Houston drove a line drive down the left-field line to bring in pinch-runner Lawrence Noble from second base with the decisive run. It wasnt the way Cumberland manager Dave Belisle wanted his season to end. Not after his impassioned speech had sparked that scintilllating 8-7 comeback win over Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday.dddddddddddd "We showed our character again. It has to end sometime," Belisle said, fighting back tears at the end of his interview. "They gave me memories Ill take home for a lifetime. The whole region of New England is loving us, not for our wins but for our effort. They gave me the summer of my life." PEARLAND, TEXAS 11, LYNNWOOD, WASHINGTON 4 Layne Roblyer hit a three-run homer in the third inning, his second homer of the tournament, to lead Pearland in an elimination game. Pearland scored five runs on two wild pitches, a passed ball and a single in the sixth to seal the win. Pearland will play Chicago on Tuesday night. Lynnwood was eliminated. VENEZUELA 2, PUERTO RICO 1 Ronny Medina struck out nine for Venezuela. Medina came through in the elimination game, pitching five innings and allowing just two hits. "Ive been working hard every single day to achieve what Ive done up to now," Medina said. Puerto Ricos lone run came in the bottom of the first and was unearned as Yadiel Santana stole home on a passed ball. Venezuela gave Medina the support he needed early, scoring once in the first and second innings. Julio Rejon hit a solo homer in the first and Jorge Cabrera came home in the second after catcher Alvin Martinez overthrew third base on an attempt to throw out Cabrera stealing. MEXICO 6, AUSTRALIA 2 Erick Velas three-run home run was enough for Mexico. Trailing by two in the bottom of the fourth, Vela stepped to the plate with one out and runners at second and third. He hit the first pitch far over right-field wall to put Mexico ahead by two. Ruy Martinez hit a solo shot to centre in the fifth for the final run. Aldair Tellez pitched 5 2-3 innings and struck out 12 for the win. RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOA 5, CZECH REPUBLIC 3 Two errors by the Czech Republic and an RBI double by Daniel Vigoren in the fifth inning helped Rapid City earn a consolation game victory. Vigoren hit a line drive to the right-field gap to score Logan Miller and give Rapid City a 5-3 lead. The hit came after Colton Hartford got in a run-down between third and home, and Czech Republic relief pitcher Tomas Oppelt made a throwing error to third base, allowing Hartford to score. Vigoren later scored on an overthrow by Czech Republic shortstop Marek Krejcirik. ' ' '
