The Los Angeles Kings Are One Win Away From The Stanley Cup Final

The Kings defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 2-1 tonight and now lead the best of seven series 3-0.

The Coyotes came out in the first period and fired 11 shots at Jonathan Quick but only had 8 the remainder of the game, 4 in each of the last two periods.

The Kings played the same game we have witnessed throughout the playoffs; tight checking, key saves and at times a dominating forecheck.

The game winner was scored by Dwight King, his 4th of this series (the Coyotes have 3 goals total), early in the 3rd period.

My PHX/NJD dream/troll series is slipping away.

This is so impressive, I’m definitely rooting for the Kings all the way.  I can’t believe they’ve gotten this far and have lost only ONE game in the playoffs!
