The @LAKings face elimination tonight in Game 6 of their second round playoff series against the @AnaheimDucks. The reason they're on the brink? Shoddy defensive play and way too many turnovers.

But before you think this problem just cropped up over the past three games, guess again. In fact, the best defensive team in the regular season is now the worst defensive team among playoff teams who advanced to the second round.

What happened? What exactly are the Kings doing wrong?

Also: The Kings also have the attitude that when their game slips, they almost always point exclusively to themselves, often stating that everything is totally in their control—it's always what they are or aren't doing that causing the problem(s). It's never what the opposition might be doing to contribute to those problems.

At least in this playoff series against Anaheim, "those problems" might also include that attitude. For more:
