Analyzing Kings’ 3-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks [video]



Hockey Hall of Famer and Times NHL columnist Helene Elliott took some time after the Kings’ 3-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday to answer a few questions on video from fellow Times reporter Lance Pugmire.

Among the topics Elliott covers in the video, which you can watch above:


The amazing clutch ability of Slava Voynov. The defenseman has five goals in the playoffs, but deflects all praise to his teammates.

The Kings rediscovered a great way to win a playoff game: Get off to a fast start.

The loyalty of Kings fans makes the team extra hard to defeat at Staples Center.

Jonathan Quick is still an excellent goalie, and he didn’t play as bad in Game 2 as many said. He is great at compartmentalizing things, and was a key part of the Game 3 win.
