Chicago Blackhawks. This NHL team is just one of many teams that the National Congress of American Indians is asking to change its name and eliminate all Native American names and mascots in sports.

CHICAGO, ILL. -

 Patrick Kane scored his third goal of the game 11:40 into the second overtime period and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the defending champion Los Angeles Kings 4-3 to advance to the Stanley Cup finals on Saturday night.
    
Corey Crawford made 33 saves and Duncan Keith scored in his return from a suspension as the top-seeded Blackhawks eliminated the Kings in five games in the Western Conference finals.
    
Chicago will host the Eastern champion Boston Bruins in Game 1 on Wednesday night. Boston completed a sweep of the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night.
    
This is the first finals matchup of 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.
