BUT RATHER PUMPERNICHOLL, OUR MASTER RECAPPER*
KINGS 2, BLACKHAWKS 3
Wow. What a high Los Angeles Kings fans have been on since the end of Game 3. Their team bounced back on home ice to cut the Chicago Blackhawks series lead to 2-1.
What seemed like an impossible comeback suddenly was within the team's grasp. If the Kings could hold serve on home ice, it would be a brand new series heading back to Chicago. And winning at the Staples Center had become something expected. The Kings home ice win streak reached 15 games following their Game 3 win.
Seemingly nothing could stand in their way in evening the series. All of the good juju accompanied with Staples Center was there. As long as every little minute detail stayed in place in the moments leading up to the puck drop, the defending Stanley Cup Champions were undoubtedly winning this game.
When will the lA kings lose at home? **** I hope not today **** #Nervous
