EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Dwight King has been living in a hotel since the Los Angeles Kings recalled him from the minors just over three months ago, and the playoff hero isn't about to move out of his temporary digs.
He's not tempting fate while the Kings are on the verge of exceeding his wildest dreams for his first NHL postseason run.
Los Angeles is on the brink of its second Stanley Cup final after leaping to a 3-0 lead over reeling Phoenix in the Western Conference finals, with King outscoring the Coyotes all by himself so far.
The eighth-seeded Kings are on an unbelievable 11-1 run in the postseason, winning the first three games in each of their first three series.
They've almost grown leery of talking about their eight-game winning streak, a bit like the teammates of a pitcher throwing a no-hitter.
