MHH Playoffs Live Thread! May 20, 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 17: Drew Doughty #8 of the Los Angeles Kings knocks over Shane Doan #19 of the Phoenix Coyotes in the third period in Game Three of the Western Conference Final during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Staples Center on May 17, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

#3 Phoenix Coyotes at #8 Los Angeles Kings, Game 4, 3:00 ET, NBC and CBC. Kings lead series 3-0.

The Kings have lost one game so far in the playoffs. One. That one game came in the first round; it was game 4 and LA had the opportunity to sweep the Canucks on home ice. It didn't happen. Fast forward to round two and we had the same situation. LA had the opportunity to sweep the Blues on home ice. This time, they did it. What's going to happen today? Will the Coyotes steal one from Jonathan Quick, Jeff Carter and Dustin Brown?

I doubt it. But even if Phoenix does win this game, the chances of them winning the next four games in a row to take the series are so minuscule as to not even be worthy of consideration. The Kings will be in the Stanley Cup finals. Everyone knows it..even the Coyotes.

FUN FACT: In this series, LA's Dwight King has personally outscored the Coyotes 4-3.
