Open Post- Game 5 Stanley Cup Final, New York Rangers vs. Los Angeles Kings

The game starts just after 8:00pm ET and is on NBC, CBC and RDS.

Will we have a game 6 on Monday night?

Yesterday I said the New York Rangers will win tonight and nothing has changed my mind.

I know I am probably in the minority, but I sense a Rangers team getting better and the Los Angeles Kings getting a bit frustrated.

Enjoy the game and feel free to discuss the game as it plays out.

The Grind Continues

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo,

They say the Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy to win in sports. Well, maybe it’s the hardest trophy to lose, too.

There is nothing like the grind of the NHL playoffs, and when you face a 3-0 or 3-1 series deficit in June, the motivation to keep going against the odds comes from ambition and belief and money and pride and pressure. It also comes from the physical, mental and emotional investment you’ve made over the past two months, not to mention the seven before that. You don’t want it to go for naught. When you’ve come this far, when you’re this close, it would hurt that much more to come up short.

“When you think about it and collect your thoughts and go through everything we’ve gone through this year – it started a long time ago – it’s nice to still get another chance,” said Brad Richards, the Rangers’ acting captain. “It’s all we wanted to do last night. It wasn’t the prettiest game. But we’re still here today, and if you go this long, you just keep fighting somehow and some way. You figure it out as a group to just fight another day.”

There Will Be A Game 6 In NYC

from Mike Keenan at the New York Post,

I expect the Stanley Cup finals to come back to the Garden for Game 6.

The biggest reason for the Rangers to believe is Henrik Lundqvist. As experienced as the Kings are, they’re up against a goaltender and maybe a team that has some resilience as well that might be able to take games away from them when they don’t expect it.

When I coached the Flyers in 1986, we played the Rangers in the opening round of the playoffs and we were beaten by John Vanbiesbrouck. We dominated our games, but we could not score on him. He stole a series for them, and that could happen in this series as well with Lundqvist.

I absolutely think Lundqvist has three more games like Game 4 in him.

Pressure On The Los Angeles Kings

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

If the fourth game is indeed the hardest one to win, the Kings may be the poster boys for that saying as the NHL season refuses to end.

The Kings aren’t happy the Stanley Cup final has come to this. They have another chance to close out the New York Rangers on Friday night at the Staples Center and Los Angeles wants this overwith.

Rangers’ centre Derrick Brassard tossed the pressure card in the direction of the Kings following practice Thursday.

“The mindset is totally different because we have nothing to lose,” Brassard said. “We do, because we’re playing for the Stanley Cup, but at the same time it’s 3-1 and all the pressure is on them to close out the series.

“It’s never easy. We’ve felt as a team we’ve been playing right with them the whole series.”

The Kings have been here before, up 3-1 in the Cup final and unable to get it done easily. It happened in 2012 against the New Jersey Devils when the Kings weren’t able to close it out until Game 6.

“We’re not thinking about that,” defenceman Drew Doughty said. “We’re back home, that’s where won it last time, so that’s what we’re thinking about here.”
