Big Game Story: The tables have completely turned and now the 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles KINGS, who dropped the first two games of this series and could hardly buy a goal over the first three games, are in position to eliminate the fragile St. Louis BLUES and win their fifth consecutive round in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Slava Voynov's second game-winning goal in five days, scored eight minutes into overtime of Game 5 on Wednesday night, gave the Kings a 3-2 victory and the WCQF’s Series lead.
KINGS need to remind the BLUES which team won the Stanley Cup Championship. GO KINGS GO !!!

He knows what we went through last year and everyone understands that, but it's just a matter of refocusing because it's going to be a different postseason this year."

( On the confidence of being able to close the series at home) … “I think we’re playing up to our potential, or closer to our potential than we did in the first two. Even though the first two we had the chance to win them both, we didn’t feel like we were playing very solid hockey. But the last three have been a little bit different, and there are still some areas that we have to clean up, but we feel like we’re getting there. Staples Center has been a good place for us this year. It’s going to be tough. I mean, everybody knows that the fourth one is the toughest one. So we’re going to have to get focused tonight and get ready for tomorrow and just play our game and be on top of our game."

We're comfortable at home, we've been playing some good hockey there. To get back in front of our fans is a huge boost for us. We'll go back and try to win a game."

So that tells you that both teams – the style they play and the discipline they play, and that’s why it’s a long series, and that’s why I think it’s a good series.” (On whether the team is starting to get “that feeling back”) … “Actually, today I’m tired."

NOTE : Regarding LARGE SIZE IMAGES / YELLOW RE-SIZE IMAGE BARS ABOVE PICS, let me offer up one nice little suggestion ...
This will get rid of those pesky yellow resize bars over the top of some larger pictures ... as they annoy the hell out of me and maybe they do you also ?
- Go into/click on your "USER CP" {control Panel} up top left in the red bars
- on the left under 'Settings & Options' click on "Edit Options"
- scroll down to 'Thread Display Options', and then 'Please Select the Resize Mode'
- click on the 'Drop Down List Box' over on the Right of 'Please Select the Resize Mode'
- select it to "KEEP ORIGINAL SIZE"
- SAVE your selections !
There ... now don't that look MUCH BETTER

Find a way to win, no matter how we or they play.

Must close this thing out. Would rather not see the Blues given a chance to come back and take it away with a Game 7.

Tavo 05-10-2013 01:25 AM

Pumped up for tomorrow, 4-2 Kings!

Mr Los Angeles 05-10-2013 02:07 AM

im feeling confident. i said this in the PGT the other night but this kings core is very much like the kobe/shaq lakers core in regards to knowing how to win. we have been outplayed for the majority of this series but this team just knows how to get it done

SettlementRichie10 05-10-2013 02:12 AM

I don't care how it gets done, a GWG goal off of Ellerby's left eyebrow, or Bill Ranford playing goal himself, just win. Do whatever you have to. Don't let this series go back to St. Louis.

agentfouser 05-10-2013 02:39 AM

Does Sutter go back to seven defensemen, now that he can control the matchups better?

I hope not. I have a feeling Toffoli will score if he plays tomorrow.

3-0 Kings.

TonySCV 05-10-2013 03:22 AM

Must win game. Do not want to deal with a game 7 on the road.

Don't wanna go back to St Louis. Close it out at home and get ready for the next opponent, pl0x.

ScoreZeGoals 05-10-2013 07:36 AM

Do not give this team any hope, come out strong and finish them off

Ron* 05-10-2013 08:52 AM

A couple of interesting stats:

If the Kings win:

1. It will be the first defending champ to win a first round series since the Penguins did it in 2010 (three seasons).

2. It will be the first Kings team to win five playoff series in a row (extending their own record of first Kings team to win four series in a row from last season).

Sydor25 05-10-2013 09:01 AM

Nice to see Voynov at a +5 for the series.

Being down 0-2 and heading home is pretty close to must win.

That is the same sentiment echoed by the players. The words from Brown (below) are the same I have heard Penner, Scuds, Richards and Carter say on different interviews with different networks. You can't help but feel and see that this group is very very close and totally believe in each other; they work hard every shift for the guy next to them. And even last year, during their low moments in the winter when media and fans doubted, they never did. That faith in each other is a powerful thing.
And it also helps to have such a solid, talented top 5, Kopi, Brown, Carter, Williams and Richards who have shown that they have the will to overcome and a never say die attitude.

Brown:

''Our mood hasn't really changed from Game 1 to now,'' Brown said. ''Everyone understands. We went through it last year. ... I think that feeling has never really left. We got down 0-2, but our confidence as a group and our belief system as a group has never really faltered. Being down 0-2, it's one of those things you have to deal with, and we have the type of guys in here that can deal with adversity and find a way to get the job done.''

That 'finding a way to get the job done' is something that I think can be tied to them winning is all last year. There is something that come sfrom being a champion and the feeling of confidence that it gives you. They've shown that.
