  • The friggin Kings are game 7 masters and did it on the road.

    I gotta say, they look like winners to me.

  • A bummer series for me personally. As a Canucks fan, seeing AV back so quickly really irks me. On the other hand I cannot stand Dustin Brown and the Kings.

    That said... Kings in 6.

  • Im a Ranger fan so I will represent the dissenting few on this board.

    that said, and in no means to curb my excitement over being in the finals for the first time since Messier, the Kings are a very good side. We (and by that I mean Lundvqist) will have to do everything humanly (and possibly some super human) possible to get this series to 7 games

  • This series has the makings of a classic. LA vs. NY, east coast vs. west coast, and arguably the two best goaltenders in the league. As a Kings fan from the dark early years of the purple and gold, I'm going with Kings in 7.

  • Wow, what a great game 1. Rangers are fast, but in the end the Kings got it done. Excellent.

    real bummer...and a great game. i know its hockey (and not basketball) but I felt the Rangers NEEDED that game 1, especially after the way they started.

    Need to rebound and snatch game 2 or this series could spiral downward quickly.

    two really... I think the Rangers first goal was short handed, and then the missed breakaway at the end of regulation (what a flurry that was... Kings had like 4 great chances, and then suddenly the Rangers are speeding in alone, then its right back in the Rangers zone for two more great chances).

    Game 2 may decide whether the Rangers are in this thing or not. Hyperbolic considering their path to the Finals, but the Kings are not the Flyers or Penguins (not just geographically speaking either)

  • I live in LA, and this is still a Lakers and Dodgers town. I see very few Kings jerseys around anywhere, even two years ago when they won the cup.

    I would almost root against the Kings because Los Angeles doesn't deserve the championship, but if the Kings lost, doesn't seem that people around here would notice anyway

    Since one of my good friends is a Kings fan. ..

    GO KINGS!

    I believe they will...

    the Rangers destroyed that first period, threw everything they could at it, and came away down 1-0 (on a ridiculously late tally).

    just cant see them mustering the energy to hang with them for another game.

    with the help of a little snow pile... as close as the Rangers have been in these games, it was nice to see a little luck go there way.

    can see them taking Game 5. Dont believe they will however. The Kings just rammed the puck at the Rangers net for the last 20 minutes, as they did in game 1. They're just too fast

    Although this became truth, NY played a very inspired game.

  • For a series that ended 4-1, it was a very evenly matched series, and one that could just as easily have gone to seven. One game was really not in contention until the very end. One. And the rest were OT nail-biters with tons of great chances on both sides. Rangers have no reason to hang their heads over this one.

    And the final game was amazing; one of the best hockey games I've seen. So many chances in OT that hit the posts or crossbar, and on both sides. Goalies were amazing. Shots and chances were amazing. Really a great finish to a great hockey season. I just wish more games were on regular NBC instead of NBCSN. Would have gotten more exposure to a series that highlighted just how cool hockey is.

  • Not a big hockey fan at all, but I was lucky enough to turn on the game in the 3rd and watch both OTs as well with the wife. Almost had a heart attack and I have almost zero rooting interest. Incredible.
