Looking at their roster...I don't know how Phoenix keeps on winning.
The same reason the Kings keep winning. They are playing as a team and everyone's on the same page + good goaltending.
They've played more home games than we have, but they've also won most of them. In fact, we would have to win our next 5 or 6 in a row at home to catch up to them in home wins and they'd still have one fewer loss. They are a very good team this year.
Chicago doesn't let many points get away from them in their own barn, and Phoenix really shut them down tonight. It was damn impressive that they made Kane and Toews and Hossa all look absolutely ordinary tonight.

The Los Angeles Kings - 2012 Stanley Cup Champions
One of the pleasures of Staples Center is everything it lacks in common with the rival Orange County arena. For every silicon filled 40 something year old mother of two who hasn’t had a good lay in a decade at Honda Center, there are ten gorgeous 20 something girls at our home who define hot. For every kid with a kazoo or duck call who still lament the name change from the Pond, there are a 100 intense Kings fans who would gladly oblige any similarly inclined Ducks fan to a discussion about the effects of a post concussion syndrome after a good ass kicking.
For all the rivalry, shouting, chanting and good natured fun between our Kings and the whiny kids down the freeway, two things have become clear. The Ducks are yesterday. The Kings are here, now and tomorrow.
