night to leave the Western Conference final tied at
#1
CHICAGO -- Jeff Carter scored three of Los Angeles six straight goals, and the Kings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 6-2 on Wednesday night to leave the Western Conference final tied at one game apiece. Tyler Toffoli and Jake Muzzin also scored in Los Angeles five-goal third period as the Kings became the first visiting team to win in Chicago this post-season. The Blackhawks won their first seven home playoff games this year, but the Kings skated right by Chicago after the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks took a 2-0 lead in the second period. Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Saturday night in Los Angeles. Nick Leddy and Ben Smith scored for Chicago, which won 3-1 in Game 1 on Sunday. The Blackhawks were in position for their fourth consecutive win before Carter redirected Drew Doughtys slap shot by Corey Crawford to tie it at 2 just 1:37 into the third. Muzzin then had another power-play score at 4:04 that gave Los Angeles the lead. Once the Kings got going, they appeared to get almost anything they wanted against the sagging Blackhawks. Tanner Pearson set up goals by Toffoli at 8:59 and Carter at 14:44, and Carter added an empty-netter for his seventh of the playoffs. Carter also had an assist in his first career four-point playoff game. It was his second playoff hat trick. It was the most goals allowed by the Blackhawks in a playoff game since a 6-1 loss to Detroit on May 24, 2009. Jonathan Quick made 23 saves for the Kings, including a big stop on Brent Seabrook with Chicago trying for a 3-0 lead in the second. The Blackhawks got off to a strong start, using their speed to draw four penalties in the first period alone. Brandon Saad was responsible for two of the calls, making a pair of nice moves that ended with Matt Greene in the box for hooking and Doughty sent off for holding. Los Angeles defenceman Willie Mitchell had to cross check Peter Regin into the net to prevent a goal with about seven minutes left in the period, but Chicago made the most of the man advantage. The Blackhawks turned away a short-handed rush by the Kings, and Duncan Keith made a nice pass ahead to a streaking Leddy coming up the right side. The defenceman, who was a healthy scratch for Game 3 of Chicagos second-round series against Minnesota, then sent a backhander over Quicks left shoulder at 14:16. It was Leddys second career playoff goal. He also scored on April 21, 2012, at Phoenix. Chicago struck again in the second, with Smith jumping off the bench and beating Quick on a line change to make 2-0 at 1:40 of the period. The Blackhawks had another prime scoring chance when Kris Versteeg made a nice pass to Seabrook on a 2-on-1, but Quick got over to make a nice stop on the defencemans shot. Quicks play on Seabrook provided more time for the Kings to get back in the game, and they took advantage when Mike Richards pass to the crease went off Justin Williams right skate and past Crawford with 1:46 left in the second. Williams sixth goal of the playoffs cut Chicagos lead to 2-1 after two, and the Kings carried the momentum over to their big third period. Crawford made 25 saves.

Jose de Jesus Corona Jersey . - Young and old.SAO PAULO, Brazil -- FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke began his latest inspection tour of World Cup host cities Monday amid uncertainty about whether Brazil will be able to deliver the final six stadiums by the December deadline established by FIFA. Valcke is visiting the southern city of Porto Alegre and will then move to the wetlands city of Cuiaba, where local organizers are still trying to finalize a bidding process for the seats at the new stadium. There were problems in the southern city of Curitiba, too, where construction was halted because of workers safety concerns. Brazilian organizers say all stadiums will be completed in time despite the recent setbacks. Valcke has made it clear FIFA will not accept the same delays that plagued stadium construction before the Confederations Cup earlier this year, when only two of the six venues were delivered on time. Some were ready just before the start of the warm-up tournament, keeping organizers from hosting the desired number of test events. Of the six stadiums yet to be completed, five were less than 90 per cent finished by September, according to recent government numbers. The venues with the most advanced work were in Natal and in Sao Paulo, home of the World Cup opener on June 12. The stadium in Cuiaba was set to be completed by the FIFA deadline but the problem with the seats haas prompted concerns.dddddddddddd Local officials were forced to cancel the initial bidding process for the seats after public prosecutors alleged they were overpriced, prompting a rush to find a new supplier. Local organizers said they want the new seats delivered by Dec. 20, just days before the FIFA deadline. In Curitiba, organizers were still trying to reverse a judges order that suspended construction after an inspection team deemed the site unsafe for workers. The work was stopped on Thursday and a new inspection took place Friday after officials said the safety problems were solved, but it remains unclear when the judge will issue a new ruling. Valcke was visiting Porto Alegre and Cuiaba accompanied by local World Cup organizing committee members Ronaldo and Bebeto, former Brazil stars. Brazils Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo also was expected to participate. In both cities, Valcke was expected to meet with high-ranking government officials in charge of the local preparations. He will also check on infrastructure work being done at the host cities. Valcke is also giving away symbolic tickets to representatives of the construction workers, who will be allowed to watch one match for free at the venues. The secretary general will participate in a board meeting of the local World Cup committee in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday. ' ' '
