Los Angeles Kings vs. Anaheim Ducks Game 5: Keys for Each Team
Mark J. Terrill/Associated Press
The Kings and Ducks prepare to do battle in Game 5.

The Anaheim Ducks have evened the series at 2-2 with their 2-0 win in Game 4 over the Los Angeles Kings. After Los Angeles won the first two games on the road, Anaheim returned the favor by winning twice at  Staples Center.

The big story in Game 4 was the play of rookie goalie John Gibson, who stopped all 28 shots he faced in his NHL playoff debut.

The Kings trailed 2-0 after one period and then took control of the game. Anaheim had only three shots on goal in the final 40 minutes while the Kings took 19, but they were unable to solve Gibson.

With the series even at 2-2, the next game becomes crucial for both teams. Game 5 will be played in Anaheim Monday night at 10 p.m. ET.

Here are the three biggest keys for each team to win Game 5. Feel free to comment on any of these or add one of your own. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
