Hitchcock Thinking Positive Going Into Game 6

from Norm Sanders of the News-Democrat,

The win was the third straight by the Kings, who once trailed 2-0 in the best-of-seven series. They also trailed Game 4 against the Blues 2-0 and 3-2 and were nearly down 3-1 in the series.

Now the Kings, who became the first road team to win a game in the series, return home to Los Angeles looking to close things out Friday with a win in Game 6.

"You need an all-in mentality and we had that," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We need to come with that same mentality for Game 6. This is not over."

Hitchcock couldn't fault his team's overall effort.

"There's lot of positives," Hitchcock said. "Effort, discipline, structure, whatever you want. There's a lot of positives.

"Overtime's a crapshoot. I know to win the (Stanley) Cup you've got to win most of your overtime games."
