The Kings forwards are bigger than the Blues defensemen. If they can apply the same type of pressure that they did to Vancouver's defense I see them as having a lot of success against Elliott. Elliott had a great season, but he isn't even close to being in Quick's league.
Gotta get the puck deep and pound their defense with guys like Brown, King, Nolan, Stoll, Penner, Lewis and Kopitar. I was really impressed with Kopitar's physical play in the Vancouver series.
Playing with the lead is going to be critical in this series. Hitchcock is the master of coaching teams to protect a one goal lead. He did it for years in Dallas.
