The Los Angeles Kings Keep Impressing

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Seven weeks ago, after an overtime loss at home April 22 to San Jose, the Kings were down 3-0 in a first-round series and seemingly one game away from their season ending.

Now they're one win away from their second Cup victory in three years.

You sort of run out of ways to describe this incredible Kings team, right?

Three Game 7 victories, a perfect 7-0 in elimination games, a league record for winning three consecutive payoff games after trailing 2-0 in each. It's kind of mind-blowing.

Heck, Monday night's 3-0 shutout of the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden was almost boring in some ways, short of the kind of hair-raising drama we've come to expect from this Kings squad.

“Boring?”  Probably for the first time all playoff year, I was watching a Kings defense that reminded me so much of the Wings in ‘97:  suffocating, stifling, shut down defense.  It was a beaut.

The Kings team I know and love showed up last night and it was beautiful. Timely goals, solid D and excellent goaltending. That was the team Vegas picked to walk all over the Rangers and they did just that. Go Kings!!

Snore, SCF is just as boring as watching these two teams meet in the regular season.
Bring on the draft and some real action.

I’m sure it is boring watching your team golf. But it’s pretty exciting for us fans who are on the brink of winning another cup!! wink
