LOS ANGELES — Just ahead of tonight’s Game 6 of their Western Conference Quarterfinal series against the San Jose Sharks, who lead the series 3-2, the Los Angeles Kings, have not only made this playoff series a competitive one, but the pressure is all on the Sharks.

Despite that, the Kings are still just one game away from elimination, and they know that they have to keep doing what’s been working for them, and push forward from that.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Since the earliest days of the Los Angeles Kings 2013 training camp, head coach Darryl Sutter has been singing the praises of left wing Dwight King, referring to the 24-year-old native of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan as his best player during training camp, and he has continued to speak highly of the much-maligned forward, to the chagrin of the considerable number of detractors he has gained since last season.
