"Pucks haven't been going in lately, and it's been hard to score," said Booth, who hasn't scored in the first three playoff games of his career. "It's intense, though. It's been really exciting, so much fun to play (in the postseason)."
While the Canucks hope Daniel Sedin returns, the Kings also could get some depth reinforcements. Brad Richardson, a back-line forward who hasn't played since undergoing an appendectomy eight days earlier, was cleared to play Tuesday.
Kings coach Darryl Sutter will put no undue pressure on his team to finish off the series in four games. Los Angeles has been impressive in the playoffs after a disappointing finish to the regular season, but Sutter realizes the differences between those efforts are minor and often ephemeral.
"I know the series is 3-0, but it honestly just as easy could have been the other way," Sutter said.
