The Los Angeles Kings have played five elimination games in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and we're only in the second round. They'll play a sixth on Friday night as they head across town into Honda Center for a do-or-die Game 7 against the Anaheim Ducks.
It's the de facto Golden State Championship: the Kings defeated the Sharks in seven games in Round 1, and now the two remaining California teams will play one final game to determine who advances to face the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final.
Aside from the obvious Game 7 implications, there's one other storyline that hangs in the balance: Will this be Teemu Selanne's last-ever NHL game? The 43-year-old legend is retiring after the season ends, and that could come tonight with an Anaheim loss.
