Kings Have Learned How to Win
 
http://sports.espn.go.com/los-angele...ory?id=4873875

"As Anze Kopitar sat in front of his locker and took off his pads, he couldn't put them in his equipment bag fast enough and get on the first team bus out of TD Garden.

The Kings had no business beating the Bruins on Saturday night, a 3-2 shootout win that gave them their fifth straight victory and continued the Bruins on their seven-game slide, but they did. It shouldn't be a surprise at this point for a team that seems to find new ways to win every night, but Kopitar still felt as if he were taking a ski mask off instead of his helmet afterward.

"Not a full robbery," Kopitar said. "But it was still a steal."

The fact is playoff teams find ways to steal games like this. Playoff teams find ways to win on the road when they're behind in the third period. And playoff teams find ways to win even when they are not playing their best. After an eight-year postseason drought, the Kings have finally learned what it's like to be a playoff team."

well considering the fact that the Bruins didn't do what they needed to do to put that game away, the kings had every much a right to win as Boston. While the Kings certainly didn't play their best game, far from it, they did what was necessary. These hacks need to quit looking for reasons why the Kings shouldn't beat another team and start looking to reasons why they are.

The article didn't read anything like that. It was a good article on how the players have bonded, became a team and have learned to win.

Hasn't Frolov been here the longest?

Yup, but he's kinda easy to forget about for most people who aren't Kings fans.
