Being a Kings fan, I have a few observations: 1) The crowd at Game 6 was great, let's keep it up. 2) Bernie Nicholls is a crybaby. 3) Tony Granato and Tomas Sandstrom for Nicholls was a steal. 4) Kelly Hrudey is a phenomenal playoff goalie. 5) Wayne Gretzky at 80% is better than 90% of the players at 100%. 6) John Tonelli and Steve Kasper are vital players to the Kings. 7) Steve Duchesne is regaining last year's form. 8) Marty McSorley plays extremely hard, and he is improving. 9) If they beat the Flames, they can beat anybody.
