Madison Square Garden Heats Up for Stanley Cup FinalsPublished June 9, 2014 by OCR Editor
The heavy hitting NHL Stanley Cup Finals between the Rangers and the Kings gets underway tonight at 02:00am UK time.
The Kings are up 2-0 in the Stanley Cup finals after beating the Rangers in LA in incredible feats of teamwork and never giving up even when down by big deficits. The Kings have been able to rally back from not 1 but 4, two goal deficits in the first 2 games, including 3 in Game 2 alone. Both wins have come in OT and both teams have left it all on the ice throughout every period played giving fans at the arena and at home exactly what they want.
The series goes to Madison Square Gardens tonight for Game 3 and the Rangers are in a must win situation. For NY to fall behind 3-0 in the series is to basically put the nails in ones own coffin. The Rangers have only been able to win 2 series' out of the last 7 in which they were down by 2 games, all coming after 1996. The Kings are on a hot streak and have won 7 straight series' in which they held a 2-0 lead and in fact the sole loss that they suffered when up 2-0 was in 1968 against the Minnesota North Stars.
