*THE FOLLOWING BELOW IS NOT WRITTEN BY THE ROYAL HALF, BUT RATHER PUMPERNICHOLL, OUR MASTER RECAPPER* GAME 1: KINGS 1, HAWKS 2 GAME 2: KINGS 2, HAWKS 4   Ho hum, the Los Angeles Kings are back in the Western Conference Final. Just four wins away from capturing the greatest trophy in sports – The Clarence S. Campbell Bowl – the Kings first had to face off against the President's Trophy-winning Chicago Blackhawks, a team that has given them fits over the past few seasons. It was going to be a highly contested series that could go the full seven games, or just as easily result in a sweep for either team. One of those strange series where the teams were so evenly matched that no result would be surprising. However, I liked the Kings chances against the record-setting Blackhawks. As long as Jonathan Quick kept his team in the game and could get inside the Hawks' heads, and leading scorer Mike Richards stayed healthy, I saw no problem for the defending champions... ...oh god.   Let's just get this over with. Click Here to Read the Rest of PumperNicholl's RECAP of Game 1 & 2 vs the Blackhawks!!! *Note: The back-to-back games coupled with my indefinite Twitter Jail sentence (#FreePumperNicholl) made this two-game recap a bit trickier. If this is your first visit, what the hell took you so long? Also, the typical game-style recaps will be back for Game 3 if I haven't drank my weight in vodka and Bud Light Lime during the third period.   #****** twitter.com/djarum/status/… — 0.0 (@djarum) June 2, 2013 Oh this should be fun. ...or the complete opposite.   **** Jonathan Quick, **** Dustin Brown,**** Daryl Sutter, and **** the entire Los Angeles Kings roster.
