I actually have an inclination the rangers WILL take game 1 tonight. That\'s how this playoffs has gone hasn\'t it. Nothing expected.

I had my doubts before the series that the Rangers could win 3 out of 3 in New York so was hoping they could find at least 2 wins on the West Coast. It was all going so well for 20 minutes last night.

It makes Game 2 an absolute must win for the Rangers as I just don't see them being capable of coming from 2 down against this Kings team.

The Rangers have had the lead for 50 minutes in the 2 games so far whilst the Kings have never held the lead.

Yet it's the Kings who hold the 2-0 series advantage. Oh dear :no:

48 teams in Stanley Cup history have held a 2-0 series lead and 43 of them have gone onto win the Cup. It's going to take a mountain of effort for the Rangers to overhaul this one

how many have won from 3-0 up lol

Didnt think they'd win 3 in a row to start the series but their psychological edge/experience/just knowing how to win is showing.

Game 4 might be a pass for me. Had the Kings lined up to pick this game but Have to think the Rangers will desperately want to avoid an embarassing stanley cup whitewash. Kings might like the idea of sealing the deal in LA? (dont wanna push their luck though.)

Kings showed they are only showed on the road though, +120 definitely the best option available.

Good Luck :win:

No bet for me as well. No chance the Kings are even thinking about taking this back to LA. They want this done tonight. They know themselves first hand this season how quickly momentum can change in a series.

After the excellent postseason we've had in the NHL it would be a shame if the biggest series of all ended in 4 games. Especially when the NBA finals is shaping up to be a real classic

I've been reliably informed it's just 1 in 26. The 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs against the Detroit Red Wings.

In 7 days it'll be 2 from 27 :hope: :lol:

I'm staying away from a betting perspective. The problem for the Rangers is that they've given up far too many shots in this series (apart from Game 3) as good as Lundqvist is, he can't do it on his own.

They need someone to step up tonight otherwise they won't be flying back to New York preparing to play a Game 6
