Historic Showdown in Tonight's NHL Stanley Cup FinalsPublished June 11, 2014 by OCR Editor
Both Stanley Cup finalists the Rangers and the Kings could make history tonight at the fourth series game (8pm ET, 1am UK time).
The New York Rangers are down 3-0 against the Los Angeles Kings in the NHL Stanley Cup Finals after a 32-15 win in Monday's third game. The teams meet again for a fourth game tonight at Madison Square Garden (8pm ET, 1am UK). Kings are not celebrating yet, but statistics are with them tonight seeing that the last time a team came back from a 3-0 deficit in the finals was back in 1942, when the Toronto Maple Leafs turned around on the Detroit Red Wings.
Opportunity to Make History
The Kings themselves have returned from a 3-0 deficit against the San Jose Sharks earlier in April, but the big question for tonight is if their rivals will manage to outdo themselves and turn the show around at least for one game. Game 3 saw the Rangers losing to the Kings despite outshooting them 32 to 15, a thing attributed to Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick who made 32 saves bringing about the first shutout in a Stanley Cup finals game at Madison Square Garden since 1972.
Will the Kings Complete a Sweep?
The last time the Stanley Cup finals were won in a sweep was 1998 when Detroit beat the Washington Capitals. Kings could be resetting that statistic tonight if the Rangers don't show up for the game. The Kings have already had a 3-0 lead over the New Jersey Devils in the 2012 finals, but then slipped and saw the Devils win two games only to win at 4-2.
