Brent Seabrook is looking to do more after being on the ice for both of the Kings' power-play goals in Game 4.
"I've got to be better," Seabrook said. "It doesn't just start with the penalty kill. It's in every facet of the game. I think we've all got to be out there doing things that are going to make us win a game. I think some things happened last game that are uncharacteristic [of us], but I'd say you've got to give L.A. credit. They're forcing us into different situations, but we've got to be better and we will be better." Los Angeles has a 3-1 series lead going into Game 5 on Wednesday. Seabrook has no points and a minus-one rating in the Western Conference Final. May 28 - 8:54 AM
