Kings have been playing borderline dirty of late. I expect that to continue and it could be our chance of winning the series. The B's won the mental battle against the Nucks by playing a similar style.
The B's matched them hit for hit and cheap shot for cheap shot and the 'Nucks caved in game 7. This is a mental battle which can be won by the Kings if they play the way we've seen them play over the last month. Kings in 6.
Wow, as if most of you seriously don't think we have a shot. This is not your typical 1-8 blowout matchup, we've got the players to match against the Canucks. This goes down to the wire, and I think we upset them in 7, albeit it won't be much of an upset because we're a much better team than an 8 seed. Go watch the highlights of 2 years ago, it's not like we were outplayed, we were an inch away from going back home up 2-0 in the series if Handzus' stick wasn't tied up in game 1. Series can go either way, should be a good one
We can beat Vanocuver! In today's NHL there is no real gap between 1-8. We match up well against verse the Canucks and they may be down a major player.
The mental toughiness is concerning! But we've had this problem a couple years now but we always perform above expectations in the playoffs (despite the 1st round exits) remember our top 2 centers were Stoll & Handzus. Now it's Kopitar & Richards! BIG difference!!!!
