    CHICAGO -- Jose Abreu has been at his best since reuniting with his young son. Matt Pryor Hoodie .The slugger hit the first of four White Sox home runs and Jose Quintana threw 7 2/3 solid innings to lead Chicago past the Seattle Mariners 9-3 on Saturday night.Avisail Garcia and Alex Avila hit consecutive homers during a four-run fifth and Tyler Saladino added a two-run shot in the seventh, all off struggling reliever Vidal Nuno.Abreu extended his hitting streak to 10 games and his on-base streak to 23 with a solo shot during a two-run first against Ariel Miranda (1-1).Abreu, who defected from Cuba in 2013, went more than two years without seeing his son Dariel until a December trip to the island nation organized by Major League Baseball.Dariel, now 5, traveled to the U.S. for the first time earlier this month. They were reunited in Miami, and Dariel will be with his dad for another week or so before returning to Cuba.Abreu is hitting .351 with four homers in his past 10 games. Coincidence?We know hes happier. That part is pretty obvious, that he has a little more to him, manager Robin Ventura said. This game does enough to beat you down that if you can find something like that, it just helps you when you come to the ballpark.Abreu had already dressed and dashed off to be with his family when reporters were allowed in the clubhouse.When he talks he seems relaxed, Quintana said. He talks a lot about his family. Its fun. Im happy for him.Quintana (11-9) allowed two runs -- one earned -- and five hits, struck out eight and lowered his ERA to 2.77 in Chicagos fifth win in seven games.After a hot August start that got them into playoff contention, the Mariners have lost four of five.The left-handed Miranda pitched four innings, allowing three runs and five hits while throwing just 47 of 90 pitches for strikes.The biggest thing was fastball command. He wasnt locating it great, manager Scott Servais said. Thats his pitch.Quintana allowed a leadoff double to Leonys Martin in the first, and he scored an unearned run thanks to Avilas passed ball. But Avila made up for it in his first game off the disabled list with a solo shot in the fifth.Left fielder Melky Cabrera, back after missing two games with an illness, added a first-inning sacrifice fly and threw out Robinson Cano trying to stretch a single to help squash Seattles best rally off Quintana.Justin Morneaus first triple of the season in the fifth scored Todd Frazier. Garcia followed with a two-run shot off Nuno. Garcia also doubled twice.TRAINERS ROOMMariners: 3B Kyle Seager went 1 for 4 after missing three games with a bruised right foot. Seagers return, along with an upcoming schedule heavy with left-handed opposing pitchers, led Seattle to option OF Norichika Aoki to Triple-A Tacoma. ... Servais said RHP Tom Wilhelmsen (back spasms) was not crazy about going on the disabled list. We really dont have time where were at in the bullpen right now to give him five or six days, Servais said.White Sox: RHP Miguel Gonzalez (groin) threw a simulated game. Hes eligible to come off the disabled list.OOPSSeattles Chris Iannetta took ball three, tossed his bat and jogged all the way to first in the fifth before realizing he hadnt walked. Quintana struck him out on the next pitch.NEW FACESAmbidextrous pitcher Pat Venditte, a reliever acquired from Toronto this month, joined Seattle with his special glove after a stint in Triple-A.Splits have said Im a little bit better from the left side, Venditte said. So I would imagine thats how Ill be used here.Also arriving in a flurry of moves were INF Dae-Ho Lee from Tacoma and reliever Dan Altavilla, who was wide-eyed after getting called up from Double-A Jackson.Altavilla hit 100 mph in a perfect eighth and struck out Frazier in his major league debut.My family in the stands just going crazy, it was tough to hold back my emotions there, he said.UP NEXTSeattle RHP Taijuan Walker (4-8, 4.14 ERA) faces LHP Carlos Rodon (4-8, 4.02) to close the four-game series Sunday. Eagles Hoodies Jerseys Sale . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes.

The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. CHICAGO -- Patrick Kane skated toward the middle of the ice, dropped to his knees and pumped his right arm, surrounded by a sea of red jumping up and down in waves. The hats began to come down as the Chicago Blackhawks rushed in to celebrate another trip to the Stanley Cup Final. It was an emphatic checkmate at the end of a long night. The Los Angeles Kings NHL reign is over. Kane scored his third goal of the game 11:40 into the second overtime period and the Blackhawks beat the defending champion Kings 4-3 on Saturday to advance to the finals. "Right now I think its almost like Im in a different zone, like in the Twilight Zone or something," Kane said, calling it the best game of his career. "Im kind of out of it. Its definitely a good feeling, though." Corey Crawford made 33 saves, and Duncan Keith scored in his return from a one-game suspension as the top-seeded Blackhawks eliminated the Kings in five games in the Western Conference Final. Chicago will host the Eastern champion Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the best-of-seven championship series on Wednesday night. Boston completed a sweep of the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night. "Its a special couple places. The tradition of the Bruins and the Hawks is special," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "Im sure, you know, the rivalry could return instantly come Game 1. I think its good for the league. Its good for hockey. Two great hockey markets. Were very excited to be a part of it." This is the first finals matchup of NHL Original Six franchises since 1979, and it will pit two of the last three champions against each other. Chicago won the Cup in 2010, ending a 49-year drought. Boston captured the title the following year. "Every series presents its challenges," forward Patrick Sharp said. "Watching Boston, theyre rolling right now. Another tough series ahead of us." Los Angeles managed to recover after trailing 2-0 in the first period and 3-2 late in regulation in the longest game in franchise history. Mike Richards and Anze Kopitar both had a goal and an assist, and Jonathan Quick finished with 31 saves. "We got beat in the conference finals by the best team in the conference at the end of the day," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "We accomplished everything. Once you set the bar up there, then thats your bar. So obviously were disappointed to lose to Chicago, but were certainly not disappointed in how we played." Kane was in the middle of a quiet post-season when he finished off Bryan Bickells shot for his third playoff goal in Chicagos 3-2 win in Los Angeles on Thursday. The talented forward yelled in relief after that goal and came up with his best performance of the playoffs in Game 5. After Crawford made a couple of big saves in the first overtime, Jonathan Toews carried the puck up the left side during a 2-on-1 rush in the second extra session. He then made a cross-ice pass to Kane, who one-timed a shot past Quick and into the right side. "You know, the shift before, actually Jonny had the same play, and the puck fumbled on him," Kane said. "I knew he was coming back to me. Just tried to wait for the defenceman to go by me. Tried to get it off as quick as I could in the net." The rollicking sellout crowd of 22,237 erupted in joy as Kane started the celebraation for the Blackhawks. Josh Sweat Hoodie. A distraught Quick remained face down on the ice as his teammates emptied the bench for the post-series handshakes. Chicago was poised to finish off Los Angeles in regulation when the Kings scored the tying goal with 9.4 seconds remaining. Kopitar took a long shot from the right side and Richards managed to tip it by Crawford, leading to a celebration for the Kings while the crowd groaned in disbelief. "So emotional," Kane said of the lost lead. "You start thinking about it when it goes to 14 seconds away from going to the final. It stuck with us for the first overtime. It was nice to close it out for sure." It was Richards first game since he took a big hit from Chicagos Dave Bolland in the series opener, shelving the centre with a suspected concussion. "We played well in the second and third and even overtime. I think we had a lot of chances," Richards said. "But give them credit, they played well, and their goaltender made some big saves." Crawford used his glove to deny Williams and Jake Muzzin in rapid succession midway through the first overtime. Bickell had an opportunity to end the game at the other end, but he was unable to corral Kanes pass on a rush to the net. The lost lead at the end of regulation turned into a minor inconvenience for the Blackhawks when Kane finished his second career post-season hat trick. Los Angeles rally began when Williams made a strong charge up the left side and set up Dwight Kings short-handed goal at 9:28 of the second. The Kings tied it 2-2 when Kopitar pushed a rebound through Crawfords legs 3 1/2 minutes into the third. It was Kopitars first point of the series and he snapped a six-game goal drought. It also was the third power-play goal allowed by the Blackhawks in 58 playoff chances. The tie held until the Blackhawks took advantage of a bad break for the Kings to go in front again. Williams had the puck behind the net when he fell, and Bickell made a slick pass to Kane, who beat Quick to give the Blackhawks a 3-2 lead with 3:52 remaining. Keith missed Chicagos 3-2 win in Los Angeles on Thursday night after he was suspended for high-sticking Jeff Carter in the face in Game 3, opening a 20-stitch gash on the face of the star forward. The defenceman said it was an accident, and he was very pleased after the Blackhawks won Game 4 without him. Back on the ice Saturday, Keith wasted little time in announcing his presence. With the Kings in the middle of a line change, Keith got a pass from Michal Rozsival on the left side of the ice, skated in, and fired a long slap shot through Quicks legs at 3:42 for his second goal of the post-season. The Blackhawks kept up the pressure as the Kings struggled to hold on to the puck, and a little patience by Kane led to a 2-0 lead just six minutes in. He waited while a scrum in front of the net took out Quick, and then put a shot over the prone goalie. NOTES: It was the 38th playoff game in the past two seasons for Los Angeles. ...
