I posted this last year before game 4, posting again this year. Do or die time, boys.

Some NSFW language in the video.

BLUES at KINGS

(Los Angeles leads best-of-7 series, 3-2)

TV: NBCSN, CBC, RDS, FS-MW, PRIME

Big story: The tables have completely turned and now the Los Angeles Kings, who dropped the first two games of this series and could hardly buy a goal over the first three, are in position to eliminate the St. Louis Blues and win their fifth consecutive round in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Slava Voynov's second game-winning goal in five days, scored eight minutes into overtime of Game 5 on Wednesday night, gave the Kings a 3-2 victory and series lead.

Team Scope:

Blues: This time around St. Louis must come out of Staples Center with a victory if it wants to continue its season. The Blues' troubles began when they lost a pair of games in Los Angeles and were compounded Wednesday as they became the first team in this series to lose on home ice.

Alex Pietrangelo temporarily saved the day when he scored with 44.1 seconds left in regulation and Brian Elliott on the bench for an extra attacker, but an odd-man rush against them in the extra period resulted in Voynov's winning goal. It was an especially difficult pill to swallow given the Blues felt they played their best game of the postseason.

"To tie the game with that much time left, a real good feeling, but again, a tough time to lose," Pietrangelo said. "It's tough to lose in overtime when you're that close. We've just got to go in there and get the win [in Game 6] and win on home ice on Monday."

Kings: Voynov played the role of hero in overtime during Game 5, but two other key members of the 2012 Stanley Cup championship team had their fingerprints all over the crucial victory. Jeff Carter scored in the opening minute of both the second and third periods, while Jonathan Quick stopped 34 shots and came out on the positive end of an OT game at Scottrade Center after coughing the puck up to Alex Steen for the winning goal in the series opener.

Los Angeles raced to 3-0 leads in all four rounds a year ago, but was just 4-4 in games where it had the chance to eliminate an opponent. The Kings know they can win in St. Louis, but they would prefer to spend their weekend not having to worry about a Game 7 on Monday.

"We're comfortable at home," Carter told the Los Angeles Times. "We've been playing some good hockey there. To get back in front of our fans is a huge boost for us. We'll go back and try to win a game."

Who's hot: Steen scored his team-leading third goal of the series in Game 5 and his 16 shots are tied for most on the Blues with Chris Stewart. … Carter has three goals in the past two games for the Kings to give him the team lead. Mike Richards has four assists in the past two games and his five points lead all scorers in the series.

Injury report: Neither team has any new injuries to report.

I feel a convincing win coming on tonight. We've played too well in this series not to move on. The boys will be all fired up. I can't wait.

I am attempting to keep positive about this despite the extreme pessimism monster that has been bred into me from 18 years of being Blues fan. Just please (Franking) win.

Mind that two years ago the Kings had as much bad luck and had long periods of mediocrity. They overcame it. We can too and it has to start sometime. I'm hoping that sometime is tonight.

I have zero confidence. It's been beaten out of my from 25ish years of being a Blues fan.

As soon as they lost game 4, I knew it would be Kings in 6.

If we lose this game like we've lost the rest in this series, it will be a shame, because overall for the series we played extremely well and really outplayed the Kings.

What a difference a couple snipers up front make. They bury a few of their few good chances, and we can't bury a few of our 10,000 good chances.

I'm confident the Blues will come out and play hard as hell, just like they have the entire series. If they can manage to get a few bounces go their way, they can easily win this game and bring it back home for game #7 and then it's anyone's series.

LA will only really take it to the Blues if the Blues let them. The Blues are far too good defensively and far too good in their own end to allow LA too many instances of sustained waves of pressure. If LA is dominating, that means the Blues aren't playing their game, or have let the pressure get to them.

(Frank) it all.
Just win this one and see what happens in game #7.
Teams come back from being down 3-2 every year. And if the Kings do win this, that's 4 in a row for them. The Blues have to force a game #7. Have to.

Obviously a winnable game. We've been the better team almost every game. The one game we clearly weren't the better team, we still had a third period lead. I don't feel good about where the series is, but it's not like the Kings just took the series over after we went up 2-0. That being said, we've gotta score first IMO. Sure it's possible for us to win after the Kings take a lead, but I really don't like our chances of that happening.
