Los Angeles Kings: 5 Ways LA Can Close out Series

The Los Angeles Kings are on the brink of finishing off one of the most impressive postseason performances in the history of professional sports.

They're perfect 10-0 record on the road and their ability to win game after game is something unheard of from a No. 8 seed.

After taking the first two games in New Jersey, the Kings will take on the Devils in Game 3 at the Staples Center tonight as they try to continue their postseason dominance and come one win closer to hoisting their first Stanley Cup.

The Devils did a solid job applying pressure in the L.A. zone, but their inability to capitalize on scoring chances was a huge part in why they left the Prudential Center down 2-0 in the series.

Up to this point, the Kings have done almost everything right. Their forecheck has helped them establish scoring opportunities, and they are getting help from everybody on the ice.

Not to mention they have Jonathan Quick in net.

If the Kings can keep up this kind of hockey they're playing—the kind of hockey they've been playing throughout the postseason—then a sweep of the Devils is eminent.

Talk about a Hollywood ending.
