I still love all of you. All the Kings have to do is win a game. They can do that. And if they weren't focused these last 2 games, they certainly should be now.

I think they finish it off on Monday in Game 6, at Staples in front of their fans, just as it should be.

As fans, this is the most stress we've felt all playoffs but it's still a beautiful time to be a Kings fan.

Or it could be the most painful time in the organization's history. but I won't think that way. If it's any consolation, EA predicted us in 6... so blah blah blah... Nucks were predicted to win by EA last season, so just take it with a grain of salt.

Were gonna win game 6, this is just the hockey gods telling those arrogant kings fans and bandwagon celebrities to S.T.F.U! Nothing comes easy

Half of the goals the Devils have scored have been absolute garbage goals.

It certainly could be but it's not yet. And as a fan, I try to remember to not let sports ruin my days, nights, weeks, and months. They're meant to be enjoyed. And while they're most enjoyable when your team wins, I'd much rather the Kings lose games that matter than never make it far enough to even have the chance to disappoint me.

I'm not seeing doubt. I'm seeing a metric ****ton of frustration, which is perfectly natural given the Kings have been the better team in this series so far. Totally understandable, and why I can't wait for Monday for the Kings to shove this series down the Devils throats.

Kings need to hit like madmen in game six.

Go Kings! Staples will probably be full of nervous energy.
There is no energy. That is what's most disappointing. Stoll has shown the most energy but he can't shoot a puck into the ocean.

Shocked by how poorly Kopitar has played most of this series. With Richards you come to expect it, all season the guy has had good stretches followed by woeful stretches, and right now he is in one of those woeful stretches. No idea why this guy is playing on the point on the PP.

Kings need to come out with a ton of energy and score first in game 6, if the Devils get on the board first we are in trouble.

Holy Crap man, this club never ceases to amaze me with their consistent redefining of the word "Fail".
yeah. Its amazing that only new fans are excited by this ****. All the rest of us old fogies are just waiting for the other shoe to drop. I hate being a Kings fan sometimes.

My night was briefly ruined..but then I received a package from Amazon.com with my Amanda Connor art book and a few other goodies I've been waiting for.

So now it's kinda neutral.

Are you ****ING kidding me? The guy got an OT winner for us. Are you really going to say that? He continues to be defensively sound in our zone and still does create offense in their zone. Like come on. I bag on the Kings for never being able to win anything, but to say there is no effort being put into is wrong.

A little humility never killed anyone. Lets hope the boys learn from it and bounce back. Like I mentioned a few posts back, these are the times and experiences that separate the true Champions from the posers. If anything, they're just lucky as hell that they've had a few games to burn and learn.

Off to game 6.

I love Kopi, but I really hope the rumors of him being sick are true. Zero shots on goal in the last two games, which just happen to be potential cup clinching games is pretty pathetic.

I almost feel the opposite. If they win, I think I won't even care about next season starting, I'll be riding that high for months. If they lose it'll be "just another season as a Kings fan."

Kopitar has been great. Remember there is another team on the ice, just because his line isn't dominating like in the other series, doesnt mean they aren't playing well

To be honest. Kopitar has been falling back on his 'play defense and pass to the point' style.

The aggressive charge to the net guy's been out the past few games... Richards has just been awful.

Disappointing, but not the end of the world. We get the chance to win it at home again after two very close games.

A win is a win though, am I right? Don't care how you get it. Just win it. If it means you suck the whole game but get the game winner then who cares, right? If Kings won tonight, well I would be partying but I think everyone would forget about Quick's mistake on the first goal.
