With 3 straight wins, LA Kings push their way to brink of bruising series win over St. Louis

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - The Los Angeles Kings and the St. Louis Blues are aware their first-round series is a bit more violent than most.

Dustin Penner's friends around the league can tell it's a dangerous matchup just watching on television.

With three straight victories heading into Game 6 on Friday night, the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings are on the brink of a remarkable comeback to win this punishing series. They know they'll still have to knock over the Blues to get that last win.

Although the Kings took control with the same relentless push they made to the Cup last season, the series has been awfully close in every aspect. Every game has been decided by one goal, and neither team has held a large lead for any significant amount of time.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
