The Comeback Kings

from Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Register,

They play in the shadow of Hollywood, and would make stellar slasher-film villains.

The Kings just won’t go away. Drop them to the bottom of the pond, and they come back seeking vengeance. With their season on the line again, the Kings came through with their best effort of this second-round series and beat the Ducks 2-1 in Game 6 on Wednesday night at Staples Center.

Five times in the last 21 days, the Kings have played a game that could end their season. They went 4-0 against San Jose in the first round, and Wednesday’s victory forced a Game 7 on Friday in Anaheim.

The Game 7 winner plays Chicago in the Western Conference Final, which starts Sunday afternoon.

“It’s a double-edged sword,” Kings captain Dustin Brown said. “It’s great that we have that ability to dig our own grave and climb out of it, but we have one (more) game to take care of here. From then on, we have to try and not put ourselves behind the 8-ball.”


Below, two videos, the first is game highlights and the second a short video of both coaches, post-game.

Kopitar, Quick, and Doughty were awesome.  Those three guys were in it from the first puck drop.
