Chicago/Los Angeles Series Deserving Of A Game 7

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

So it comes down to this again:

One game, between the last two Stanley Cup champions, to decide which team gets to play for the trophy again.

Well, why not?

You always had the sense that the Chicago Blackhawks and the Los Angeles Kings’ series would go down to the wire – and it will, thanks to Chicago’s 4-3 victory Friday night at Staples Center. The win, in a nervously played game where the lead kept changing hands, tied the Western Conference final at three apiece, with the deciding game set for the United Center in Chicago Sunday night.

Chicago is a sparkling 8-1 on home-ice in these playoffs, its only loss coming to the Kings in Game 2 of the series.

L.A., meanwhile, has won six road games in these playoffs, including victories in two previous Game 7s against both the San Jose Sharks and the Anaheim Ducks in the first two rounds.
