    Forgot to mention. There are no shootouts in the playoffs.

    Scott, prediction you are wrong. Looks like your area of expertise is basketball, not hockey. I'd be rooting against the Kings too because they are easily the best playoff team. They just sailed through New York and are on their way to beating both Minnesota and Chicago. Without Kane, I don't think the Blackhawks can beat LA. I think Kane is the best player in the league and he is the most fun to watch. But it looks to me like another conference final between Chicago and LA. If you look at the wins/loses/overtime loses, you'd realize that the Kings have been hurt this year by a poor performance in the shootouts. If they'd won half, they'd easily be in the playoffs. Anyway, look out.

    Hi, Scott. Typically the rule of thumb is that a quote will get the block quote treatment if it's longer than three full lines of text.
