Ranking the Los Angeles Kings’ Top Conn Smythe Trophy Candidates

The Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers are preparing for the Stanley Cup Final and as of now, there is no clear Conn Smythe Trophy favorite. 

Patrick Kane was surging in the past two games, putting himself in position to capture the award for a second consecutive year. But, with the Chicago Blackhawks being eliminated in overtime of Game 7 of the Western Conference Final, so too were his MVP hopes.

With that said, here's a look at the Kings' top Conn Smythe Trophy candidates as they hunt for their second Stanley Cup in three years.
