After missing their first chance to finish off the Blackhawks in a double-overtime, the Kings are back to take another shot in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals on Friday night.
Defenceman Drew Doughty says the Kings can't let the series go to a Game 7, so they're determined to prevent the Blackhawks from having another good start. Los Angeles also will endeavour to shut down Chicago's surprisingly effective line pairing Brandon Saad and Patrick Kane.
Before heading out to their second straight elimination game, the Blackhawks continue to insist all the pressure is on the Kings.
But Chicago is just 2-6 on the road in the post-season.
It seems like I'm kind of making it a little difficult on myself here the last two games.
