    Don't have the slightest idea how to call this one so I voted Kings in 7. There is a decent possibility the Knights will fold under playoff pressure so this could be over quickly but if they win game 1 then all bets are off.

    I honestly have no idea who will win this series.

    LA definitely has better top end talent but their depth is lacking, if Vegas continues to roll 4 lines and it continues to be as effective it was in the regular season and as long as Fleury doesn't screw up they have a decent chance at winning, they also have the speed advantage over LA.

    Extremely tough series to call.

    I'm rooting heavily for Vegas. Hoping VGK in 6.

    Looking forward to this one!

    Trying like hell to get tickets but I don't think it's gonna happen :sad:

    And themes.

    I liked their take on it



    LA's depth took a major hit too. No Muzzin, no Forbort means LA's D looks almost as bad as it did in 2015 when the Sharks steamrolled them. No Iafallo means a big lack of speed and tenacity. Forbort is certainly gone for the round, Muzzin and Iafallo they're saying week-to-week.

    Kings have a very experienced core led by Kopitar and Doughty. Tough first playoff series for Vegas. Vegas is a big question mark, but I will go with Kings in 6.

    Me too. Can you imagine if Vegas goes to the Stanley Cup Finals, how crazy the strip will be, I will go to Vegas if that happens.

    Yeah, kinda surprised to see so much love for LA so far given how highly this board thinks of VGK (and low of LA and all their players :laugh:)

    I do think it goes at least 6 games though. Gonna be fun to see the contrasting styles yo-yo over the series.

    If Vegas was only saving energy the last stretch this could be a very interesting series. If not and they're just broken by the recent injury bug, it should be easy for LA. Won't make a call either way.

    Was gonna root for Vegas in the playoffs, but since they are playing my team from childhood, and the fact that Vegas fans got ultra cocky, I’m hoping for a beat down by the Kings.

    I loathe LA but I’d be surprised if they don’t get to at least the conference finals.
