On Friday night, the Chicago Blackhawks travel to the STAPLES Center for Game 6 against the Los Angeles Kings. For the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks, it is do-or-die if they want to keep their hopes of repeating alive.
If the Blackhawks are able to force a Game 7, then it could spell trouble for the Kings and they seem to be aware.
“We know we can’t let it go to a Game 7,” Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said, via ESPN. “No matter what, this game has to be ours. It’s so important for us to advance to the Stanley Cup Final that we win this game. If we give them this game, they’re going to have so much more life, and they’re going to be a different team. We need to take that and deal with it.”
Whether or not the team is able to avoid reaching a Game 7 remains to be seen, but we can expect an exciting Game 6 match up with so much on the line for both teams.
