Goalie Jonathan Quick made a rare mid-game skate to the Los Angeles bench as the Chicago Blackhawks took Game 2 of the West final in the top NHL stories from Sunday:

1. You don't see this very often: Michael Handzus's 4-0 goal chased Jonathan Quick from the Los Angeles net in the second period of Chicago's 4-2 win in Game 2. It was the first time the reigning playoff MVP was pulled in the post-season since April 23, 2010, against the Vancouver Canucks in Game 5 of the West quarter-finals. The Kings were without centre Mike Richards, who was scratched with an undisclosed upper-body injury. With Chicago up 2-0, the Western Conference final series shifts to Hollywood on Tuesday (9 p.m. ET).

2. Even after a 3-0 win in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final, the Boston Bruins will take a careful approach against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 2 Monday (CBC, CBCSports.ca, 8 p.m. ET). "I expect them to have a big game," said Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron. "They're players who have character, and I don't even need to say they're excellent players." He would know, especially after a centre-ice showdown with Penguins centre Evgeni Malkin.

3. Pittsburgh's Matt Cooke was relieved that he won't face any supplementary discipline for his hit-from-behind on Boston's Adam McQuaid in Game 1. Meanwhile, McQuaid was stunned at the suggestion that he also deserved some of the blame, writes CBCSports.ca's Tim Wharnsby. Check out what some fans had to say about the decision.
