from Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Register,
Instead of rally towels, perhaps the Kings should give blood-pressure pills to their fans.
This is an exciting but anxious time to follow the Kings, who led their fans to despair (a 3-0 first-round series deficit against San Jose), then joy (a historic comeback), then did it all over again Saturday night.
The Kings trailed in the waning moments of Game 1 against the Ducks, tied the game with seven seconds remaining in regulation then won it, 3-2, in overtime. Game 2 is Monday night at Honda Center, and the Kings are carving out their niche as the team that won’t go away, or do anything in an easy, simple fashion.
“We always find a way to make it difficult and then find a way to dig ourselves out,” captain Dustin Brown said. “I think that just reassures our belief system in each other.”
