The lack of a killer instinct. The one series they did sweep, they were actually outplayed by the Blues to a pretty good extent in that game 4 but Quick stood on his head and won them the game.

Oh well, they they're young and it's just a matter of time still.

The undefeated road streak will be put to the test one more time.

As long as they finish these playoffs with 16 wins I'll be a happy camper.

LET'S GO KINGS...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

,,, and I think they have done very well for a team that barely made the playoffs.

They will live and learn... and hopefully win and learn.

Hence me saying "the one consistent weakness" Four game fours to sweep their respective series' were their four weakest efforts of the playoffs. Not sure what's hard for you to grasp about that trend.

It was not an attack on them, just a sensible observation. It is to be expected from a young team.

It is difficult for any hockey team to sweep any team. Every team that makes the playoffs in the NHL can win it all.

I agree, however that does not change the fact the Kings played with less aggression and snarl in all of the four game fours as opposed to their other games throughout the playoffs. Again it`s excusable to let your foot off the pedal a bit. But I was surprised to see them come out a lot less aggressive and too over confident in the game four of these finals, after 3 straight series where they did the exact same thing. I think having a goalie like Quick back there factors into it as well. It would be hard to just not figure he is going to win the game for you no matter how you play sometimes.

The Devils will not outhit the Kings in game 5 like they did in game 4. You will see a team better prepared to play and they will have their snarl back in their game.

trip to LA was devils first out of eastern time zone since january but i feel that if travel is to be an Achilles heel for NJ it won't be a factor just yet...
 
kings have run the table on the road...that's a real tough standard to maintain...
 
outcome of game 5 will hinge on LA's ability to weather the early storm they are likely to encounter...
 
devils will come out like their hair's on fire...
 
prediction: the series will return to staples for a sixth game
 
GL whatever wagering path u choose
