The four-letter word you don’t want to say around the Kings right now has nothing to do with them not taking care of business in Game 6 and closing out the Western Conference Finals.


It’s Kane.


Keeping Patrick Kane in check will be of utmost importance for the Kings in Game 7 on Sunday.


Through the first three games of the series, Kane had one point. The way the Kings were playing him had a lot to do with that. They didn’t let him roam around freely, always had a body near him and took away his confidence. They knew where he was at all times.

And he almost did even though he kinda did with 2 assists. That first one was a beauty but he shouldnt of been sleeping the first 4 games. In my opinon they should trade Hossa. Keep Kane and Toews for as long as they can play. Same with sharp. But hossa needs to go. He is not up to the Hossa Par of play. He fans on a lot of shots lately and misses the net a lot too. For the person that is leading your team in shots.... You want more of them to be scoring chances. Still a Great player, just takes up a lot of salary for what he is worth in my book.
