“It’s the way it should be… the L.A. Kings deserve to be up in the series, and they deserve to win the Stanley Cup.” – Keith Jones
STAMFORD, Conn. – June 10, 2014 – The Los Angeles Kings can win their second Stanley Cup in three years tomorrow night at 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN, with a victory in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final to complete a sweep of the New York Rangers. NBC Sports Live Extra – NBC Sports Group’s live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices, and tablets – will provide comprehensive of Game 4.
Emmy Award-winning play-by-play broadcaster Mike “Doc” Emrick, analyst Eddie Olczyk, and Emmy Award-winning “Inside the Glass” analyst Pierre McGuire will have the call of Game 4 from Madison Square Garden in New York.
Pre-game coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN with NHL Live, co-hosted by Liam McHugh and Dave Briggs alongside former NHL players and analysts Mike Milbury, Jeremy Roenick, Keith Jones and Anson Carter on-site from Madison Square Garden.
The Kings aim for their second Stanley Cup title in franchise history, and second championship in three years, with a victory tomorrow night at Madison Square Garden to complete the first Stanley Cup Final sweep since 1998, when the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Washington Capitals in four games.
After two overtime, come-from-behind victories at home in Games 1 and 2 to take a 2-0 series lead, Los Angeles quieted the Madison Square Garden crowd in Game 3 with a 3-0 victory last night. Kings forward Jeff Carter scored to give the visitors a 1-0 lead with 0.8 seconds remaining in the first period, and Jake Muzzin pushed Los Angeles’ lead to two with a power play goal early in the second period. Mike Richards scored late in the frame to give the Kings a three-goal advantage, and Jonathan Quick shut the door with 32 saves for the shutout.
The Rangers will now look to become only the fourth team in NHL playoff history to win four straight games in a series after falling into a 0-3 deficit. One of those four teams to complete the feat is this year’s Kings, who climbed out of a 0-3 hole to the San Jose Sharks in the first round. The 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs are the only team to win a Stanley Cup Final after losing the first three games of the series.
