LOS ANGELES - It was a tough road to get there, but the Los Angeles Kings have their rematch with the Chicago Blackhawks.

A day after disposing of the Anaheim Ducks in Game 7 of their Western Conference semifinal, the Kings were back on the ice, preparing for another short turnaround.

Game 1 of the Western Conference final takes place Sunday afternoon in Chicago.

“I think you just have to reset quickly,” said Kings centre Jarret Stoll. “You have no other choice, no other option. We’re excited. We got a little extra-added energy (Friday) night after that win. The boys were coming in (Saturday) morning, and the tunes were going and it was a happy room in here.

“We’re looking forward to getting on the plane and heading into Chicago and preparing for a Game 1 win. It’s been our whole mindset with this group the whole way through — going into tough buildings and winning and battling it out. That’s just our focus. Be ready to go in Game 1, and get a win.”
