Kings face short turnaround for Game 1 of Western Conference finals against Blackhawks

CHICAGO - The Los Angeles Kings had very little time to celebrate their Game 7 victory at Anaheim. Not with a rested Chicago Blackhawks team looming in the Western Conference final.

The Kings and Blackhawks play Game 1 of their NHL playoff series Sunday afternoon at the United Center. It is a rematch from last year's playoffs, when the Blackhawks advanced in five games on the way to their second Stanley Cup title in four seasons.

The Kings beat the Ducks 6-2 on Friday night to reach the Western Conference final for the third consecutive season. They won it all in 2012.

Los Angeles needed seven games to advance in each of the first two rounds and is facing a quick turnaround before Game 1 against Chicago.

Quote of the Day

We have to develop into a good team. We have to develop the pieces now that are a little more evident and in place to become a good team. It's not there yet.
