The Los Angeles Kings were unable to complete the sweep on Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks, but they will get another shot to win their first playoff series since 2001 on Sunday night. The start time for Game 5 was released late on Friday, and it will force the Kings to have yet another off-day before taking the ice once again.
