from Tim Wharnsby of CBC,
Here are three storylines for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final between the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers on Hockey Night in Canada from Madison Square Garden on Wednesday evening...
Will this be Darryl Sutter's final game behind the Kings bench?
Sutter will turn 56 on Aug. 19. Since his playing days ended in 1987, he has been behind a bench on-and-off for the past 36 years, beginning as a Chicago Blackhawks assistant in the 1987-88 season.
In 1989-90 with the IHL's Indianapolis Ice, he won a Turner Cup in his second full season as a head coach and added a seventh Stanley Cup crown to his family's legacy with the Kings two years ago.
At first, he turned down Los Angeles general manager Dean Lombardi's offer to coach the Kings in December 2011. He was content with his life on his ranch near Viking, Alta. Will two championships be enough or does he want a kick at the can to become the first head coach to win back-to-back titles since Scotty Bowman with Detroit in 1996-97 and 1997-98?
two more storylines...
