LeBrun lauds the Battle of California

From ESPN's Pierre LeBrun:

Take a bow Californian puck fans, you took center stage in the second round with the best hockey the NHL had to offer. I honestly cannot remember the last time I covered a series that featured two teams so closely matched.

“They were very close games, and they gave us pretty much everything we could handle,” veteran Kings blue-liner Rob Scuderi said. “I’m just glad we could pull it out.”

But in the end, two eye-popping trends owned the day: The home team went 7-0 in the series. And the team scoring the first goal was also a perfect 7-0. Which is why the Sharks, to a man, spoke Tuesday morning about how badly they wanted to score first.
