The Los Angeles Kings are halfway to shocking the No. 1 seed Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference playoffs. Can they win the next two games at home to pull off the sweep? It all starts on Sunday.
Will the Los Angeles Kings be able to knock off the No. 1 seed Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference playoffs? They already hold a 2-0 series lead and can make it 3-0 on Sunday if they can win at home. The Kings went 1-1 at home during the regular season against the Canucks, losing 3-2 and picking up a 4-1 victory in the other game.
Dustin Brown starred at the start of Game 2 with two shorthanded goals for the Kings. He missed out on the hat trick, though he was originally credited with one. Jarret Stoll wound up with the goal after a lengthy review. Jonathan Quick was outstanding as well, making 46 saves on 48 shots.
Quick's counterpart, Roberto Luongo, has allowed seven of eight Los Angeles goals through two games, though he faced far fewer shots in Game 2 (26 to Game 1's 38). Will a trip away from Rogers Arena change Luongo's fortune?
