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."

Carter's last-second goal in first period sparks Kings

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 12:41 AM / Winning Ingredients

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

NEW YORK -- The Los Angeles Kings played a near-perfect road period to start Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday at Madison Square Garden.

They bottled up the New York Rangers, taking away their speed, which many believed was the biggest advantage held by New York. They limited the Rangers to intermittent shots, refusing to let them get a foothold in the attacking zone and generate a sustained attack. They took the crowd, filled with fans that have waited 20 years to celebrate the return of the Stanley Cup Final to the Garden, out of the game almost from the start.

With all that accomplished, the Kings would have been happy to go into the first intermission after a scoreless opening period. Instead, Jeff Carter gave them the lead, scoring at the last possible second.

Quick earns first Cup Final shutout at MSG since '72

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 12:40 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick grew up in Milford, Connecticut, about an hour north of New York City, but he had never played at Madison Square Garden before he stepped on the ice Monday for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final. He skated off as the game's First Star after a 3-0 victory against the New York Rangers in which he made 32 saves.

Quick's shutout was the first at the Garden in the Final since Gerry Cheevers of the Boston Bruins in 1972, when Boston won 3-0 in a Cup-clinching Game 6 victory. Quick and Cheevers are the only two opposing goaltenders ever to earn shutouts at the Garden in the Cup Final.

The Kings lead the best-of-7 series 3-0. Game 4 is Wednesday at the Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

Lewis: Team effort reason for victory in Game 3

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 12:03 AM / Player's Blog with the Kings' Trevor Lewis

Trevor Lewis - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis will be blogging for NHL.com throughout the Stanley Cup Final, offering his insight on what is happening inside the walls of his team's locker room and within the confines of the rink.

NEW YORK -- After Game 2 on Saturday night, we stayed in Los Angeles instead of flying to the next city after the game like we would during the regular season.

It was an early flight, and I think everyone was still pretty tired. There wasn't a lot of action on the plane. It was kind of a lot of sleeping and resting.

We got into New York at about 5 p.m. and went to the hotel, got some dinner and then everyone went to their rooms for more rest.

St. John's beats Texas to even Calder Cup Finals

Monday, 06.09.2014 / 11:29 PM / AHL Update

NHL.com

Goaltender Michael Hutchinson made 49 saves Monday to lead the St. John's IceCaps to a series-tying 2-1 victory against the Texas Stars in Game 2 of the Calder Cup Finals in Cedar Park, Texas.

Hutchinson rebounded from a poor performance in Game 1 of the American Hockey League championship series one night earlier, when he allowed five goals on 22 shots. He was flawless after Blair Riley put the IceCaps ahead to stay by beating Cristopher Nilstorp 1:13 into the second period, 44 seconds after the Stars' Brendan Ranford had tied the game.

The IceCaps, the top affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets, host Game 3 of the best-of-7 series Wednesday.

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The NHL Competition Committee met for five hours Monday and agreed to make several recommendations for changes to the NHL Board of Governors and the Executive Board of the National Hockey League Players' Association.

The Board of Governors meets June 26 in New York. The Executive Board meets July 16-19 in Pebble Beach, California.

The recommendations include changes to the rules for overtime, faceoffs after icings, amendments to the separation of the hash marks outside faceoff circles and increasing the size of the trapezoid behind the net.

If the recommendations pass the Board of Governors and Executive Board, the changes would go into effect next season.
