Stanley Cup Playoffs 2012: LA Kings Must Ride Postseason Dominance

The Los Angeles Kings are rolling this postseason, and there is no reason to see any end in sight that doesn't include them hoisting the Stanley Cup at the end of this NHL postseason.

It will remain to be seen if the Kings will be going up against the New York Rangers or New Jersey Devils, but after dropping just two games this entire postseason, it just doesn't really matter.

The Kings are playing hot, and they are doing so at the right time.

They have only been taken to overtime twice this postseason, both of which they came out victorious. Now, they will have some extra time to rest and prepare while they wait for who they will be playing next.

The Devils are currently ahead of the Rangers 3-2, but with a Rangers win in Game 6, the Kings will continue to rest up and be ready for whenever they officially know who will be their next opponent.

The team better just hope they can maintain this momentum despite the rest. It certainly won't be easy, considering this is the first time the team has been to the Cup since 1993.

While this doesn't reflect any of the current players, they are on the cusp of history with the first ever title in franchise history just four wins away.

The most important player heading into this series is goalie Jonathan Quick, who only gave up eight goals in the last series against the Phoenix Coyotes. He shut them once and was flat-out dominant all series long, even in the team's loss.

That game was the only time the Kings didn't score this postseason, but besides that, the offense has been strong this postseason scoring a total of 41 goals through 14 games.

The Kings look ready to dominate once again, but for now, they will have to continue to wait on who they will get next.
