Open Post- Game 3 Stanley Cup Final, New York Rangers vs. Los Angeles Kings

The Stanley Cup Final returns to Madison Square Garden for the first time in 20 years tonight. The puck will drop just after 8:00pm ET and is on NBCSN, CBC and RDS.

You have to favor the New York Rangers tonight.  They know a loss to the Los Angeles Kings will leave them one game away from a series sweep.

Expect the Rangers to come out strong and use their speed to defeat the Kings tonight.

It’s always cool to hang with you on game days, stoney.  But I might be here tonight for a short time as I’m probably going to head out to the casinos to watch the remainder of the game.

Go Kings.

Doughty pounded into the boards.  But he laughs it off.

Seriously.  He laughed it off.

Surprised nobody seems to be lamenting the imminent death of Hockey Night in Canada… Won’t the Rogers TV deal be the end of HNiC—, which has been around longer than television? I’m sure Rogers will have a Saturday night hockey program, so kind of a lateral move, in a way, but will CBC keep the rights to the name?

7:18 of the first.  Rags thought they had a goal.  Puck trickled across the length of the goalline never crossing into the net.

h23, HNIC will be around for 4 more years at least, but Rogers will have full control of it starting next season.

Stepped away a little bit and come back to see a 1-nil LAK lead at the first intermission.

Despite the low shot count I found that period highly entertaining. That long stretch without a whistle was awesome.

Yeah, this series has been pretty excellent. Keep up the good work, Stoney!

Wow.  Kings got away with an offsides call.

McDonagh off to the sinner’s bin.  Obvious high sticking at 19:01 of the second.

Kings don’t convert on their PP.  Remains 1-nil LAK.

Stupid.  Rags just got out of a high sticking PK and then not more than 15 seconds later, they do it again.

PP for LAK at 16:41.

2-nil LAK at 15:43 of the second.

borrowing from our customary Red Wing LB,

... the next three goals are huge.

Doughty and Muzzin haven’t left the ice for 1:27 on this PK.

Kings are shot blocking fiends.  I remember the Wings used to play like that.

Rags kill off their own PP.  Their inexperience is so obvious.

Swear, man.  This is looking too much like the Wings v. Flyers in ‘97.

3-nil LAK with 2:46 left in the second.

Sick pass by Richards ... to Richards.

Well there’s the Nash of old…including the “not scoring because it’s not against the Wings”...

SYF…yeah…‘97 Wings vs Flyers series…I just don’t get it…it’s like the Rangers forgot there was hockey in June…

Flyers fans gotta be squirming and steaming.  Carter and Richards are just two wins away from their second SC win.  Holmgren sucks as a GM.

I don’t believe that Quick is going to be scored upon tonight.

Amazing I hear Richards is in the 4th line. An expensive 4th center…and Wings fans were complaining about Legwand.

The “Island” will be anything but “Dry” in two more wins.
