Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Helene Elliott of the LA Times,
The Kings see their mission as the same no matter whom they face: create traffic in front of the net, get more shots through than they did in being blanked Saturday in Game 4 by Gibson, and turn up the heat on the precocious rookie who radiated an unshakable poise in his first NHL playoff assignment.
"I know he's calm and cool or whatever, but it's our job to make his job a lot harder," Kings forward Mike Richards said Sunday.
"It's a tough situation that he's put in, with [Saturday] night maybe, possibly, their season on the line. It's now a best-of-three series, so it's a lot of pressure to put on a young kid."
Whether that's wishful thinking or reality will become apparent Monday.
