Ouch. The Kings just want it more. It's like watching a professional team against a high school team. :cry:

For someone that doesn't know much about NHL I have no idea how a 8 seed beat the nr 1 seed 4-1, nr 2 seed 4-0 and now are up 3-0 against the 3 seed. Anyone care to explain?

Well, the Kings had trouble scoring in the regular season and I believe was bottom 5 in scoring. But their defense was strong and if I recall correctly only Kings and Blues allowed the least goals in regular season. Don't forget Kings had to win their remaining 6 games to just get in the playoffs. Now comes the playoffs and they go 11-1 so far. Somehow this team figured out how to score goals and thats major reason why they're succeeding and in position to make the Stanley Cup finals. In regular season they won a ton of games 1-0 or 2-1 but now are scoring 3-4 goals which helps them go 11-1. This is first time I'm seeing a run like this by someone at an 8th spot. I honestly don't see any weaknesses by them as they play solid defense, figured out how to score and have an amazing goalie in Jonathan Quick.

The Kings have one of the most talented teams in the league. They were considered a team 'on the verge' of contending the last 2 years after a long decade of sucking/tanking and stocking up talent and people talking about them in an OKC style of "It's not if they make the Finals, it's when" anticipation about their core, they traded for a star forward (Richards) which made them the sexy (and my personal) pick to break though and win the conference following a similar path as Chicago's breakthrough a few years ago, then at the deadline after a sh*t half year they traded for another star (Carter). So basically they're stacked in talent. The first half of the year their coach made them play an ultra restrictive/defensive style leading to a WTF 30th offense despite top 10 offensive talent, then after switching coaches they became aggressive and had a winning % that would've translated to best in the league.

The anamoly was the Kings being bad for half a season much more than them winning the conference. They have a ton of star forwards, good defensemen and a top 2 goalie. With that talent they had no business finishing with less than top 5 record in the conference. Sometimes in the NHL weird regular seasons happen and then when the playoffs start and it's about matchups it comes down to how good teams actually are on paper instead of their RS record and the Kings on paper and in talent easily are a contender. Next year now that they have the right style of play for the team I would expect them to be 1st or 2nd in the conference. With that said they aren't THIS much better than everyone else, they are clearly on a roll and I think Van, STL, and Phx all unravelled mentally to an extent against them

I love your optimism, and certainly hope you're right (hey, it happens quite often in the NHL), but LA just looks too determined to lose 4 in a row. I'm guessing we win today and quite possibly lose game 5 at home (Coyotes fan deserve to see their team one last time at home, regardless of the outcome).

The best, yet most devastating possibility I could foresee happening is, we win the next 3 games. Game 7 comes back home and everyone is super exciting. We get a 2-3 goal lead heading into the 3rd period. Then, suddenly, LA get's it within 1 with a minute left. Somehow, with seconds to go, they tie it and we go to overtime. We play 19 minutes of the overtime with no goal and then..... heartbreak. :cry:

Hey.... can you tell I'm a long time Arizona sports fan? Always prepare for the absolute worst and most horrific way to lose!

Game 5 begins in 30 minutes. If Yotes can win this game things could get interesting.
