Look at St. Louis the other night. That was a team closing out a series with confidence. They just played their game, and didn't wait for San Jose to react.

All season the Kings have done this. When they have the lead they play not to lose. They react to the team they are playing rather then just continuing to play their game. It's execution. Think back to the last period of game 2 when the Kings were up by 2, yet they decided to honestly let Vancouver pressure them for 5 minutes straight.

It's tiresome to watch a team play not to lose rather then just play their game start to finish.
Let's put things in perspective:

St Lous >>> San Jose
Vancouver >>> Los Angeles
