TRH 3RD ROUND PLAYOFF RECAP 1/2 – CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS: JAIL BAIT
*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…
Let's just get this over with.
*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.
