TRH 3RD ROUND PLAYOFF RECAP 5 – CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS: KANE UNABLE
KINGS 3, BLACKHAWKS 4 (2 OT)
We pick up action late in the third period as the Los Angeles Kings season seems all but over.
With under 20 seconds left, most fans had begun negotiations with the devil for one last shot to tie the game. Since every longtime Kings fan knows that this will assuredly will end with pure agony, we also prepare for the reality that any glimmer of hope is presented only to make the pain even worse.
Yet, somehow, we momentarily let our collective guard down. A goal now meant a chance, consequences be damned.
Would it be worth it? We didn’t care.
We just wanted to hold on to the belief that this team, that we’ve all somehow found a way to love more every day, could come back. It wasn’t that we rationally thought they would come back from 3-1 down in the series, it was that we believed they wouldn’t quit.
So live through the bevy of emotions again as we look back at the last game of the Kings of the season.
What’s that? You want to set yourself up with more visual cues to make the pain worse?
OK, we can do that first.

Don’t get me wrong, I was bouncing off the walls in pure jubilation. It somewhat resembled these reactions:
