I don't think the Pens could, at all. Boston, yes, anyone else in the East, no. The Kings just need to make it out of the West and the Cup is theirs.

Elaborate on why the Pens could not, if you would.

The Kings, Blackhawks, Penguins, or Bruins will be the ones winning the Stanley Cup this year.

Shaping up to be a dream pair of Conference Finals series right now.

Blackhawks vs. Kings
Penguins vs. Bruins

I think all will make it that far.

Might be the best pair of Conference Finals in a very long time.

I don't know about other people, but I am not a big fan of playoff upsets. Unless it is a team I really dislike being upset.

Most times, I enjoy seeing 4 true powerhouses in the 3rd-round.

We can be beaten, this isn't last years team. The team can go as far as Jonathan Quick takes them, the guy knows how to put the team on his back and win. If he keeps playing like this, I am very comfortable.

Little premature. I think in the West, Chicago is the true test.

I really hope Matt Greene can play at some point this postseason. It would really really ease my mind to not rely on Muzzin.

Sharks, Hawks, and maybe even Ducks could probably beat them, or lose to them in the West. Don't see Detroit but they can't play until the Conference Finals anyway.

Blues are a pretty good team. Better than the Canadiens, Leafs, Caps or Islanders, that's for sure.

If Matt Greene doesn't come back, winning the cup will be next to impossible. Quick is going to have to basically be superman.

Beating the 4th place team 4/6 games probably does not signify that the Kings are "unstoppable"

Well if you'll cease your Western Conference chest thumping for just second, the Blues are not better than the Caps. The Caps know what goals are. And way to scrape the barrel by throwing the 8 seed in there. Well done.

I respect the Kings, I think they're a great team, but no I don't react to a team beating the Blues with "OMG they're unstoppable"

Why are you two basing your hopes on Matt Greene?

You have the most balanced team in the Western Conference.

Blues were probably the 4th best team in the entire playoffs, so it should be impressive

Anyway are the Kings unstoppable? No, they are stoppable, is Godmode Quick beatable in a 7 game series? Maybe not

Feels great to win a series, but we saw first hand how many things have to go right for a team to win a cup.

Regardless though, it feels good to see the culture of our franchise really change. We are no longer a team that wins a playoff round and calls it a great season. The "cup or bust" mentality is no longer a joke for the LA Kings and it makes me proud.

20-6 in the last two playoffs is pretty close to unstoppable (not that I actually think we can't be beaten. It's just fun to be able to say we have only lost 6 games in the last 5 series).

It's not just about beating the Blues, it's about the Kings with a 20-6 record in the Postseason over the past 2 seasons, and J Quick back in beast mode.

I think we can win without him. It would just be nice not to have a heart attack twice a game from muzzin turnovers in the D zone.
