The L.A. Kings don’t score much. But, they just keep on winning.
Of the four teams remaining in the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Kings have the lowest goals-for average, with just two goals-per-game.
The Pittsburgh Penguins lead all four remaining teams in average goals-for (4.27), followed by the Boston Bruins (3.17) and Chicago Blackhawks (2.75).
And yet, the Kings, who will face the Blackhawks in the Western Conference final, have won their last six playoff series dating back to last April against the Vancouver Canucks.
It may not always be flashy, it may not always be fun to watch. But the Kings don’t seem to care.
They have the 2012 Stanley Cup and are in a good position to go for a repeat. Style be darned when you get the results.
“We could bore you all to death. If we keep on winning, I could care less what people think of our game,” said Kings’ captain Dustin Brown told reporters.
“We found something that’s successful for us as a group, and sometimes people don’t think it’s exciting. It depends on your opinion.”
