Kings want to finish Rangers as quickly as possible

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 4:45 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- The Los Angeles Kings know what it's like to trail 3-0 in a best-of-7 series. That's why they have no intention of taking their foot off the gas in the Stanley Cup Final.

In the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Kings became the fourth team in NHL history to win a series after losing the first three games when they rallied to eliminate the San Jose Sharks. Wednesday they'll attempt to complete a sweep of the New York Rangers in Game 4 at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

"It wasn't easy for us to come back from 3-0 in the first series against San Jose," Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said Tuesday. "We know how it can happen. All it takes is one game, one momentum shift. The [other] team can run with it, the other team can be down in the dumps.

"That's why this next game is so important for us. We can't let them back into the series. We have to take it to them. They're going to have their best effort without a doubt and we need to have ours as well."

Five things Rangers must do to avoid being swept

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 4:28 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The looks on their faces told the story of one end of this Stanley Cup Final. They were looks of disbelief, of disgust, of dismay. And they were looks that shouldn't have surprised anyone who made their way into the New York Rangers dressing room Tuesday afternoon.

"I'm not going to lie to you, it's pretty much impossible to be upbeat," Rangers center Brad Richards said. "But you have to be professional. The series is not over."

Not yet anyway. Maybe soon, though.

The Los Angeles Kings lead the best-of-7 series 3-0 heading into Game 4 on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS). They are one win away from their second Stanley Cup championship in three seasons.

Rangers focused solely on winning Game 4 vs. Kings

NEW YORK -- After a 3-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, the New York Rangers woke up Tuesday to face the reality that one other team has come back from a 3-0 series deficit in the Stanley Cup Final to win: the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs.

New York's attempt to become the second began with an optional skate Tuesday at Madison Square Garden.

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was one of the few Rangers regulars to take the ice. With a night's sleep and a leisurely skate behind him, Lundqvist faced the seemingly insurmountable mission with poise and confidence.

"It was a tough day today," he said. "It was a tough night [Monday]. You have to move on. You understand how serious the situation is and how tough it is for us to try to turn it around. Now we're only looking at [Game 4] and we'll try to win that game. Then you take it from there."

Game 3 matchup: Extra workload doesn't faze Quick

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 11:45 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

A huge part of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final will be the battle between 2012 Cup winner Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings and Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers. Those two elite goalies will go a long way in determining which team will raise the Stanley Cup later this month.

Who has the upper hand? NHL.com scouted the goalies before the series and will track their performance during each game, identifying trends affecting each goaltender. NHL.com correspondent Kevin Woodley, managing editor of InGoal Magazine, will use the 360 Save Review System software from Double Blue Sports Analytics to chart the goals and shots against each goalie in each game of the Stanley Cup Final. Here are his findings from Game 3, a 3-0 victory by the Kings, which gives them a 3-0 lead in the best of-7 series.

Muzzin's play has helped Kings control Cup Final

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 11:15 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- One of the biggest themes from this stunning postseason run of the Los Angeles Kings has been how the additions of Marian Gaborik, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson have altered the forward depth and made the club more potent offensively.

Another change from 2013 to this season though has occurred gradually and been just as important. Defenseman Jake Muzzin has improved tremendously from his rookie season, and his placement with Drew Doughty on the top pairing has made the Kings a different team.

Muzzin had a key goal in Game 3 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final as the Kings defeated the New York Rangers 3-0. They lead the best-of-7 series 3-0, with Game 4 Wednesday at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m.; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

Rangers desperate for answers in 3-0 hole vs. Kings

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 1:10 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK – After a disappointing 3-0 loss against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, it didn't take long for New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist's frustration to show.

His postgame scrum started with a simple question: "What happened?" a reporter asked.

Whether it was the phrasing or the tone of the query that bothered him, Lundqvist paused angrily before requesting another question.

"A better question," he said.

Quick's performance has Kings on verge of Cup

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 12:59 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Before the 2014 Stanley Cup Final began, a prevailing theory was Henrik Lundqvist would need to be a significant advantage in the battle of goaltenders with Jonathan Quick for the New York Rangers to have a chance to defeat the Los Angeles Kings.

Through two games, neither goalie was particularly sharp, but one of them had a huge Game 3. It wasn't Lundqvist, and now the Kings are one victory from the Stanley Cup.

Quick was stellar, mixing in a couple of highlight-reel saves amongst the 32 stops he made to help Los Angeles to a 3-0 victory at Madison Square Garden and 3-0 lead in the series.

"I think that was his best game of the playoffs," Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said. "He played fantastic for us [Monday night]. He made some big saves, saves he had no business making. His rebound control was good, his puck-handling was good, everything about his game tonight was great and he was a big reason why he won."
