from Jill Painter of the Los Angeles Daily News,
The four-letter word you don’t want to say around the Kings right now has nothing to do with them not taking care of business in Game 6 and closing out the Western Conference Finals.
Keeping Patrick Kane in check will be of utmost importance for the Kings in Game 7 on Sunday.
Through the first three games of the series, Kane had one point. The way the Kings were playing him had a lot to do with that. They didn’t let him roam around freely, always had a body near him and took away his confidence. They knew where he was at all times.
Kane has seven points in the last two games, including the game-winner at Staples Center in Game 6, in which he skated around with the Kings’ end with such ease and nailed a wrister from high in the slot with 3:45 left.
The Kings must bottle him up if they are to advance.
