I'm thinking the Kings win in 5.  Admittedly, though, part of that is because I always underrate San Jose.  I frankly have no idea how they swept Vancouver.

I guess they spent slightly less time diving than Vancouver.

Kings defense (14 blocked shots) and PK (3/3, only 4 shots) was pretty strong even though San Jose got off 35 shots

The opposite, actually. San Jose had 24 power plays to Vancouver's 10.

We'll never beat the Sharks in a best-of-seven. So, I guess I'm "happy."

I've took a stance on every other matchup except for this one. I definitely don't want the Kings to repeat. I want us to remain the last team to accomplish that. And I'd LOVE to get revenge on the Sharks after the last 2 playoff series they won against us (or were given by the refs). But I just can't bring myself to root for them. So at this point I just hope for a grueling 7 game series, where both teams get beaten and battered.



As for my prediction, I'll say Kings in 7



Most likely Quick will be the difference

I'd rather have Kings repeat and take down Hawks (if we lose) then to have the Hawks go on to possibly get a shot at being a presidents' trophy stanley cup champion.

 

I think Kings have better shot at roughing up the Hawks and taking them out of their game. Sharks will try to match talent and skill and lose.

I will happily accept the Kings going back to back cups if it includes beating the Pens!

Agreed. They still don't look quite as good as they did last season, but they're finding ways to win.

I guess even last year though they built momentum and confidence with each game they won. And Quick has been looking great.

1 win down, 3 to go....hmm, wonder who I'm cheering for.

Question to LGW:

If the Kings were to finally take the mantle from us of last team to go back to back, would anyone be disappointed/offended?  Obviously bummed because it's not us anymore...


I wouldn't be offended in the least.  Different if it were Chicago or Pittsburgh of course, but not LA.

If the Wings get bounced my bandwagon team is the Sharks. hear me out, Imagine a conference final situation between Chicago/SJ and Pittsburgh/Boston. You gotta take the lesser evil in that situation. Won't be surprised at all if LA wins this though.

Confused about which team you say is lesser evil? Out of Chicago/SJ/LA, I think LA is lesser evil. I also hope for Boston to have enough D to stop Pitt, but maybe if Lundquist stays great, Rangers can take them down but do they have enough other firepower?
