Sharks had a dominant first period, but I thought the Kings played better in about half of the second period and most of the third period. Sharks also got a little help from the refs in a quick whistle that should have been an L.A. goal.
The keys to this series: establish the forecheck, hit EV...

If your team had that schedule you'd be crowing about it like your name was Cheryl. They were overachievers that could have, should have and maybe even really did (Stanford) lose a game in the regular season. But in no way shape or form was that an "easy" slate. This from a fan of ND's biggest in...

Impressive effort by San Jose, but I think that was less a "statement game" for the Sharks, and more of a speed bump on the road to the next round for the Kings. Too good to lose this series, IMHO....

The Kings played their asses off last night, especially in periods 2 and 3. The NHL playoffs can be exhausting just to watch (if you're emotionally invested, that is.) Can't imagine how beat up the Kings & Blues players are the way they've been throwing hits in this series. Tied up 2-2 now, each ...
