Anaheim Ducks dominate Chicago Blackhawks

Frederik Andersen made 32 saves as the Anaheim Ducks used strong goaltending and secondary scoring to top the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.

Nate Thompson, Hampus Lindholm and Jakob Silfverberg each tallied a goal and an assist, while Kyle Palmieri also lit the lamp for the Ducks, who are making their fourth appearance in the conference finals since 2003.


Brad Richards scored and Corey Crawford stopped 23 shots for the Blackhawks, who entered with wins in their last three Western Conference final openers (2010, 2013, 2014).

The first-ever playoff matchup between these two teams continues with Game 2 Tuesday at Honda Center.
