Los Angeles Tries To Keep The Momentum Going On Saturday

Chicago Blackhawks @ Los Angeles Kings – Saturday May 24, 2014 (Game 3)

Even Chicago Blackhawks fans had to admit that the Los Angeles Kings team that showed up in game one of the NHL Western Conference finals was nothing like the Los Angeles team that had battled its way to this point in the playoffs. But, then again, the scoring juggernaut that showed up as the Kings in game two was nothing like the Los Angeles team everyone knows either. The Kings have yet to play like the Kings in this series, and that could be bad news for the Chicago Blackhawks.

A Los Angeles Kings playoff win is a grinding game with great goaltending from Jonathan Quick. Quick struggled mightily in game one, and the Kings poured on the offense in game two. If Los Angeles can get into its usual rhythm at home and establish its game in the third contest of this series, then this may wind up being a five game series.

Los Angeles Kings

Whatever the Kings did before game two worked a little too well. Some Kings fans are concerned that Los Angeles wasted their efforts scoring six goals in game two and there may not be enough left for the rest of the series. But the Kings have solved the mystery of Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford, while also figuring out how to shut down players like Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. This could very well be the game where the Kings show off what they have learned and take control of the series.

Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks are realizing that they will have to play a stronger game if they want to beat the Los Angeles Kings. Chicago was able to fly pretty high in the last round against the Minnesota Wild, but this Los Angeles team presents a much different set of challenges. The Blackhawks need to do more to protect Corey Crawford and keep the Kings out of the Chicago zone. If the Kings are allowed to roam free in the Chicago zone in game three, then the Blackhawks will never have a chance. But this Chicago team is resilient and knows how to win big games, which means that we should see quite a battle here.

The Bottom Line

The Los Angeles Kings rarely lose at home in the playoffs, especially after blowing out the opposition in their own building the game before. While the Blackhawks are the defending Stanley Cup champs, this Los Angeles team still has the essential ingredients it used to win a Cup just two years ago. Now that the Kings are that close to having a shot at another Stanley Cup, the Blackhawks may find it difficult to keep the Kings down. Chicago will try to use its speed to keep Los Angeles on its heels. But that didn’t work in game two, and it certainly will not work in game three.

Pick: Los Angeles Kings
