Port 5228 shows hpvroom when it is chrome

Wireshark shows TCP port 5228 as HP Virtual Room (hpvroom). This is the well-known port for 5228. By running netstat -b at the same time Wireshark logs the capture as hpvroom netstat shows that chrome.exe trying to connect to the destination port 5228. Is there another dissector that would long this as chrome? Is there other data on this in the Wireshark forum? I have some information that this could be XMPP or GCM connection attempts also. I have management freaking out over port 5228 attempts without knowing what application initiated the conversation. They don't believe it is an HP Virtual Room conversation or an Android conversation since our workstations are Windows 7 Pro systems exclusively. Any information or pointing me to a resource would be appreciated.
