Series resumes in New York
NEW YORK (AP) — The third game of the Stanley Cup final is being played this evening in Madison Square Garden. The visiting Kings enter the game with a 2-0 lead after a pair of overtime wins on home-ice, most recently 5-4 in double overtime Saturday night. The fourth game in the series, which would be the last if the Kings win tonight, will be played Wednesday night in New York.
It’s not just the fact the Rangers are losing, it’s the way they are losing. In each game they have blown a 2-0 first-period lead and they were up by two goals three times in Game 2, including a 4-2 edge heading into the third period Saturday night.
The Kings may not like coming from behind but they’ve done a great job of it this year, as they rallied from a 3-0 deficit in the first round against San Jose and a 3-2 hole to eliminate the defending champion Blackhawks.
