Kings take game four against Blackhawks

LA Kings Vs Blackhawks

KINGS 5 HAWKS 2

After another dominating victory the Los Angeles Kings are now on the brink of another visit to the Stanley Cup Finals, their second in three seasons. Behind a three-goal first period barrage, the Kings jumped on top of the Chicago Blackhawks early and never looked back, winning 5-2. For nearly two seasons the Blackhawks, and goalie Corey Crawford, had the Kings number defensively. In three straight impressive victories, the Kings have turned it all around, scoring fifteen goals in the past three games for a commanding lead. With the series returning to Chicago for a game five, the Kings will now have three opportunities to eliminate Chicago.

Monday’s win was another impressive display of both offensive and defensive hockey. The Kings, known for their defense, have become the top scoring team in the playoffs, while still playing efficient and effective defense behind a veteran unit of blue-liners and goaltender Jonathan Quick. Jake Muzzin, Marian Gaborik, and Dustin Brown all scored in a six-minute stretch of the first period, giving Los Angeles a 3-0 lead and eventual victory. Drew Doughty and Tanner Pearson would also add a score in the second and third periods as the Kings preserved their three goal lead. After largely getting the balance of their offense from the Kopitar and Gaborik line in the opening round against the San Jose Sharks, the Kings have become a balanced offensive juggernaut versus Chicago, with offense coming from nearly every line and the defense. Los Angeles now has eight players with double figures in points this postseason. Goaltender Jonathan Quick made 22 saves in the victory.

The Kings offensive barrage is particularly surprising since they were the lowest scoring team to make the postseason. After trailing 2-0 late in game two in Chicago, the Kings have scored 13 goals in just over 100 minutes of hockey, a dominating performance that has the Chicago Blackhawks looking for answers. In accomplishing this offensive outburst the Kings now may have the mental edge on Crawford, a player who’s consistently stymied them in recent seasons. Crawford stopped just sixteen shots in the loss.

CRAWFORD

The Blackhawks will now have to fight their way back from a 3-1 deficit, something they accomplished last season versus the Detroit Red Wings. Coming from behind two games will be a tall task versus a confident Kings team. Last year’s Blackhawks and Red Wings matchup was an opening round one versus eight affairs, not a Western Conference Finals. In order to beat the Kings, the Blackhawks will need to find some confidence on defense, something that has seemingly evaporated as they’ve been outscored 15-7 over the last three games. Chicago will also need offense from Patrick Kane, who’s managed just one point in the series. Kane’s struggles have been mirrored by Bryan Bickell, a hero in last year’s postseason who had a sub-standard regular season and has struggled this series, with only a goal on Monday night.

Game five is Wednesday night in Chicago at the United Center.

LA Kings Drop Game One To Sharks

LA Kings Vs Sharks Tickets

SHARKS VS KINGS

In order to take back home ice advantage and bring the series back to STAPLES Center with the opportunity to take a commanding lead the Los Angeles Kings need to win one of the first two games of their opening Western Conference series in San Jose. The NHL playoffs are all about quick starts and momentum and as the road team statement games are important. Unfortunately for the Kings the opening game couldn’t have been more painful. Feeding off the energy of a capacity home crowd the San Jose Sharks stormed out to a 5-0 lead as they utterly dominated Jonathan Quick and the Kings.

The game was the polar opposite of last season’s second round series in which the Sharks struggled to solve Quick. Los Angeles ended up winning that series in seven, with home ice advantage being a big component. In a series that has been incredibly evenly matched, last night’s game was a surprise. The surprising loss sets up an extremely important second game of the series. In order to capture momentum the Kings will need a big performance and will need to flip the recent history between the two clubs. Over the past two seasons 17 of the last 18 matchups have been won by the home team.

KINGS

The good thing for Los Angeles is they have a proven playoff performer in net with Quick, who will be motivated to make up for an unusual subpar performance. Quick gave up three first period goals for the first time in his NHL playoff career. Quick was pulled for rookie Martin Jones in the third and the Kings made a valiant attempt to storm back into the game with three goals, by Jake Muzzin, Slava Voynov and Trevor Lewis. The three tallies made the score 5-3 before Brent Burns put home an empty netter to set the final margin of 6-3.

SHARKS

In game two the Kings will look to recapture the momentum they had in the third period, while standing up to the Sharks physical style. San Jose played near perfect hockey in the first two periods, specifically keeping Drew Doughty off balance with physical play. San Jose also received solid goaltending from Antti Niemi, a major question mark heading into the series. Look for the veteran Kings to bounce back and eliminate some of the sloppy play that turned into odd man rushes and offense from the Sharks third and fourth lines.

Game two of the series is set for Sunday night at the SAP Center in San Jose, with the series making its way to STAPLES Center for games three and four on Tuesday and Thursday of next week. If the Kings can steal game two, behind a solid performance from Quick, they’ll be well positioned to get right back into the series.
