Stanley Cup Game 5 • Game 69 Thread vs. D'backs | June 13

This poster may never be more appropriate.

5 p.m.: Rangers @ Kings, Staples Center.
7 p.m.: Clayton Kershaw (5-2, 3.17) vs. Chase Anderson (5-0, 3.14), Dodger Stadium.

Revenge is in the air in downtown L.A., and why not? Both the Dodgers and Kings have unfinished bidness. At Dodger Stadium, Kershaw is looking for retribution against the Snakes, who pounded him for seven earned runs in 1 2/3 innings last month. The Dodgers are also looking to improve on their dismal 13-19 home record.

Across a few streets at Staples Center, the Kings are looking to avoid a repeat performance of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals, when the Devils won two straight after the Kings took the first three games. Win at home, avoid another cross-country flight...there's a plethora of incentives. #GoKingsGo #GoKershawGo
