There is not a lot that needs to be said heading into this Game 7 between the Hawks and Kings. Momentum has been on either side this series, but the Hawks are riding a 2-game winning streak coming back from a 3-1 series deficit.
The Kings are no strangers to a game 7 on the road, as well as how you can build momentum coming from behind in a series. The Kings are looking to make history.

Andrew Shaw had a good look at the net coming toward the right post a moment later but Slava Voynov got the puck off of his stick. Read more
