They have to stop keeping Don Cherry out so late, the man is 80 years old, he looks like he's about to go to sleep at the desk. I think that collar on his shirt is the only thing keeping him aloft.

The problem with this series, for the Rangers, isn't that the Kings are a better team. They quite clearly are not THAT much superior. The big thing is that the Rangers skills don't match up over the course of a long game with the Kings, much like last year's 5 game loss to the Bruins.

They were in most of the games in that series but as the games wore on the Bruins just wore on them with size and physical play. Much the same is happening here. The Kings are open enough to give up rushes when the Rangers can just impose their speed on the Kings, but in the 2nd and 3rd periods, just getting hit shift after shift wears on you and the Kings just grind out goals.

The only way the Rangers are going to win is to outscore the Kings and run and hide in the 3rd period. So far, they haven't gotten to the finish line. If they don't tonight, I'm afraid it will be too far out of reach for them

Well, this is a make or break game, they have to win this or face a dreaded 3-0 deficit.

3-0, down to the final five minutes of the 3rd and the Rangers just can't get on the board at all. Sakes.

Oh it's not happening. Time to pack this sucker up. It was a good run, and they might get it back to LA but this thing is done in 5, max

I guess both teams are excited for the World Cup, and want to finish in time.

Game 4 is tonight at 8 eastern time. Let's see if the Rangers can win one game in this series and deny the Kings a sweep.

Rangers get the first goal at 12:30 in the first. Off to a good start.

If they're not careful, the series may not end in time for the World Cup.

The 2nd has come to an end and the Rangers have taken a 2-1 lead! Let's see if they can hold it for twenty more minutes.
