New, comments

An open thread to discuss the Stanley Cup Final between the Los Angeles Kings and the New York Rangers.

Bruce Bennett

It's time for the Stanley Cup Final! It's hard to imagine a series better than the Western Conference Final between the Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings, but with Henrik Lundqvist in net for the Rangers, anything is possible! While the Rangers come into this series with a few more days of rest, the Kings are fresh off a third game seven victory.
