Open Post- Game 2, Western Conference Final

The puck will drop just after 8:00pm ET and you can watch on NBCSN, TSN or RDS.

I expect the LA Kings to put more  pressure on the Chicago Blackhawks defense and get to the net to create some 'dirty' goals.

Will they be successful?  We are about to find out.

Enjoy and feel free to comment on the game or anything hockey related.

At the end of Game 1 I thought the Kings looked every bit the exhausted team who had just finished a terrific 7 game series not 48 hours previous: they were winning face offs in the offensive zone but couldn’t manage to engage any cycle cause they were spent.  This game they should have no such excuse. Still, look for Chicago to get their quota,of obligatory calls. If Kings have their checking and counter-attack game going, I see an even series.

Accurate statement as Chicago is the Pittsburgh of the West when it comes to diving and getting the cheap calls. With that said, “Go Kings”.

I had radiation therapy in the month of Feb. It’s the shortest month of the year, but it was the longest month for me…... and all the trips into Washington DC were hard, because of rush hour traffic and snow…. and the radiation really takes its toll on your energy.

Fortunately I was able to work from home when I felt like it, and then just going into the office once a week most of March & then two days a week since. They were very supportive.

I just had blood work and an ultrasound last week, Dr is pleased, and is not anticipating any issues, and I have to have a yearly Scan next Feb 2015 before they will officially clear me.  But as far as I am concerned, I have kicked it, I am healthy!
Thanks.

Ugh.  GUE keeper Justin Nichols has a Crawford-like calmness in net.  Completely unflustered by anything.

Holy hell, Cawks got away with a bench minor:  waaaaaaay too many men on the ice and not one Cawk-gobbing ref bothered to call it.
