While I think that the L.A. Kings are saying all of the right things, I also think this series is over tonight. Just my prediction, and we will know tonight about 10:00 pm., baring overtime. Thoughts?
I just happen to think this is the Kings year. As a UND hockey fan, there's a very good chance that the a former UND hockey player will again be a Stanley Cup Champion. Whoever advances from the Western Conference, is going to be the favorite to win the Stanley Cup.
Thomas Drance, the score -- Though the Kings - who still hold a three-games-to-two lead in the series - have some margin for error, they're well aware that you can't let a dangerous, experienced team like the Blackhawks off the mat.
"We know we can't let it go to Game 7," Doughty told Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times. "They're a good team in their home arena. They feed off their fans. It's a tough arena to play in. So we need to win [Friday]."
Continued Doughty: "No matter what, this game has to be ours. It's so important for us to advance to the Stanley Cup Final that we win this game. If we give them this game they're going to have so much more life and they're going to be a different team."
