On Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Kings will head into game two of their 2012 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs series against division foe, the Phoenix Coyotesm up 1-0 after their 4-2 win on Sunday. This is the Kings first appearance in the Western Conference finals since 1993 and they don't look like they want their magical playoff journey to end now.
The Coyotes have the home ice advantage and are sporting a Pacific Division crown on their heads, but none of that matters now. The Kings have already knocked off both the no. 1 and no. 2 teams in the conference and are playing with a confidence level that can't be explained. They have no fear and taking a 2-0 lead back to Los Angeles would be the perfect gift for Kings fans anxiously awaiting their return home.
Game Two will start at 6 p.m. PT and will be televised on the NBC Sports Network.
