They already are and we're screwed unless MacT works some miracles.

Sweeps aren't supposed to happen beyond the first round. Can somebody stop the Kings... please?

I use their logo because they were likely the best chance of stopping the Kings and because they got swept in round 2 last year.

I'm hopeful that the Blackhawks' skill will overcome them. It'll give me hope for the sport moving forward.

I'm still holding out hope CHI will be able to handle LAK in a Western Final.

I'm not to confident though.

I think they can but the Blues were still probably the best chance of the Kings getting toppled.

Well at least the Sharks can score.

EDIT: Here we go... Please get a split San Jose.

Another edit: Maybe I should stop counting teams out.

Kopitar left the game with a facial injury.

They really have to get rid of that stupid puck over the glass penalty. It's amazing how many PPs the Kings are getting.

Edit: Never mind, Kings are Cup bound, nothing will stop them.

Delay of game is the stupidest penalty ever - refs used to have discretion buit there's no way Vlasic should have been issued a penalty for that

Not surprising that the Sharks had all the penalties in the third when the Kings were losing.

Losing a lot of faith in this league.

Bullcrap penalty to start with then the ridiculous call on Vlasic. It's unfortunately the right call according to the rules it's just a shame a game has to be decided by the refs.

Kings are a great team but I thought I was watching a Lakers game they were getting everything their way.

Can't beat LA without Stoll and with Kopitar gone for half the game then it's not going to happen.

The last 2 calls were legit. That was a clear trip on Stuart and Vlasic with that stupid over the glass rule (Edit: Or not according to Lebrun)
I hate the Kings as much as anybody but they earned this win.
They were dominating the Sharks even before the final PPs, it was just a matter of time until they scored.

They are perfectly built for the playoffs and what pisses me off is that they could plug in these young guys like Toffoli, Voynov, Muzzin, King etc. And not lose a beat. Gotta give them credit, they play the consumate team game and play their system to a T.

It would be nice if one of the Oilers secondary prospects panned out for a change.

I'm having a little back and forth with CHED's Dave Campbell on Twitter and he's already declaring the Kings a dynasty. Sigh.

I thought it was deflected right away. TV was inconclusive, but the overall point is that's retarded to not give the ref some discretion on the call. No game should be decided on that play.

Just ditch the damn rule. It's a stupid rule and everyone knows it.

Just make it like icing so you can't change your players.

I agree that the rule needs to be changed. I think they should give the refs some discretion.

If it is deemed intentional, then it's 2min. If it's accidental then the offending team can't change their players.
