After a rare day off for rest and contemplation, the Los Angeles Kings came back focused on what's missing from their run at a second straight Stanley Cup title.
If the Kings can't score more, they're sure they can't scare mighty Chicago.
Los Angeles is averaging exactly two goals per game in the postseason, lowest among the eight NHL teams who survived the first round. The Blackhawks are scoring 2.75 goals per game, while Pittsburgh and Boston are both above three goals per game.
The defending champions realize they've got to help out Jonathan Quick, whose dominant goaltending propelled the Kings into their second straight Western Conference finals appearance starting Saturday.
The Kings particularly struggle on the road, where they've scored just eight goals in six games.
