Not a single member of the Kings organization expressed any preference about where they would rather win the Stanley Cup. The possibility of closing out the series at home in tonight’s Game 5 didn’t sound sweeter to anybody in purple and black.
“I don’t care where it is or how many games it takes, I just want to win,” center Tyler Toffoli said. “You have to be focused and ready to do whatever it takes to win a game. It doesn’t matter how loud the fans are in the end.”
Game 4 was simply a missed opportunity, according to Kings coach Darryl Sutter. If the Kings win a fourth game in the series, whether it’s in Staples Center or Madison Square Garden is not important.
“No, it’s not,” Kings right wing Justin Williams said. “Just win. That’s with a big period and an exclamation point after it. Just win. I don’t care where it is. Win one more.”
