The season isn't over yet. The New York Rangers won game four. The Los Angeles Kings should have won this game. It's fitting that they won a game they should have lost since they lost games one and two that they should have won. It is probably going to end as they return to Los Angeles. Winning on home ice is better for the fans anyway.
In my game three comments, I pointed out that the lack of elite teams in the NHL did not prevent a one-sided Stanley Cup final. It is true that in a league where nobody is elite there is a better chance that a series is close. I argue that isn't a good thing. A close game isn't necessarily a good hockey game. A close series isn't necessarily a good series. When great teams play you get great series. When no great teams exist you may get a close series but it isn't a great series. Essentially what you can get instead is a long dramatic drawn out coin toss to decide the game. Who wants that (aside from gamblers)?
