Kings force Game 7 against Ducks via workmanlike win

The other funny thing about hockey on Twitter is that while the East Coasters were focusing on the Lucic-vs-Weise crap, the Los Angeles Kings solved John Gibson, held the Anaheim Ducks to 21 shots, and crafted a Game 7-forcing 2-1 victory on Wednesday evening.

Gibson got beat cleanly by Jake Muzzin, 8:16 into the first period...

But he whiffed big time on this shot by Trevor Lewis, 14:04 into the 2nd...

And while Kyle Palmieri responded 1:38 later, the Kings basically shut the door on the Ducks, and made Anaheim look skittish in doing so:

The Ducks seem to have forgotten that John Gibson doesn't score goals, and while they'll have home-ice advantage (as it were) on Friday, they look like a team that desperately needs to regroup.
