EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Dustin Brown is making sure the Los Angeles Kings don't get happy after a bit of early playoff success.

Even after eighth-seeded Los Angeles stunned the Presidents' Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks by taking the first two games of the first-round series, the Kings' captain realizes the historic obstacles in the way of a 44-year-old franchise that still has never lifted the Stanley Cup.

Brown also realizes the Canucks will be desperate to save their season in Game 3 on Sunday night, even if they have to do it without superstar Daniel Sedin, who didn't travel to Los Angeles on Saturday.

But if the Kings can get past their home-ice disadvantage, they'll be in position to make history.

Los Angeles has lost five straight playoff games at Staples Center.
