Game of the Day: Kings at Rangers
Covers.com

Los Angeles Kings at New York Rangers (-125, 5)

After failing to erase several two-goal deficits, the New York Rangers attempt to claw their way out of a two-game hole when they host the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup final on Monday at Madison Square Garden. New York held leads of 2-0, 3-1 and 4-2 before Dwight King's controversial goal and former Ranger Marian Gaborik's NHL-leading 13th tally forged a tie and captain Dustin Brown scored 10:26 into double overtime as Los Angeles claimed a 5-4 triumph on Saturday. "Everyone is talking about how we come back," Brown said of the team's resiliency. "I think it's more how we turn the tide of the game over the course of the game."

The Kings have overcome the tide of emotions to become the first team in league history to win three consecutive playoff contests after facing two-goal deficits. New York wasn't interested in hearing that news after failing to hold a third-period lead for the first time in 11 contests this postseason. Mats Zuccarello collected a goal and an assist in Game 2 for his first dent on the scoreboard since his three-point performance in the series opener versus Montreal in the Eastern Conference final.

LINE HISTORY: The Rangers opened as -122 home faves but has moved up to -125 with a total of 5.

INJURY REPORT: Rangers - LW Daniel Carcillo (Eligible June 11, suspension)

ABOUT THE KINGS: Although Los Angeles holds a 2-0 advantage, it hasn't had an official lead in either contest of the series. "Either way, we're up 2-0. I don't care how we got there," said Justin Williams, who scored the overtime winner in Game 1 before collecting three assists on Saturday. For those keeping score, the Kings haven't enjoyed a lead in the past 229 minutes, 15 seconds - dating to the third period of Game 6 of the Western Conference final against defending Stanley Cup-champion Chicago.

ABOUT THE RANGERS: Henrik Lundqvist was livid that King's controversial goal was allowed to stand despite goaltender interference, but admitted that he needed to leave the sour taste in Los Angeles. "You don't have a choice, you have to move on," Lundqvist said. "We go home now and try to stay positive, believing in what we do in here." When asked for his thoughts on King crashing the crease, coach Alain Vigneault did his best to measure his words: "Ask the NHL," he said.

TRENDS:

* Over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in New York.
* Home team is 6-2 in the last eight meetings.
* Kings are 8-0 in their last eight vs. Metropolitan.
* Over is 5-1 in Kings last six road games.

CONSENSUS: 73.69 percent of Consensus bets are on the Rangers.

Stanley Cup Finals Game 3 Odds and Pick
By: Marcus DiNitto 
Sportingnews.com

Down 0-2 to the Kings in the Stanley Cup Finals, the Rangers opened as -130 favorites at Coasts sports book for Game 3 Monday night at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network). Most Las Vegas bet shops opened New York lower, in the -125 range, with MGM posting -120 as its first number.

The most significant early odds move came at Caesars, which opened the Rangers -125 but adjusted to -115 about 20 minutes later.

At the LVH SuperBook, the Rangers are now +450 underdogs to come back from the two-game deficit and win the series, with Kings backers now having to lay -600.

Both games in this series have gone into overtime – Game 2, in fact, went into double OT. As noted by Sporting News hockey writer Sean Gentille, the Kings have now won three-straight games after trailing by two goals. They came back from two separate two-goal deficits to win Saturday night.

Said L.A. defenseman Willie Mitchell, "It baffles everyone in here. It’s not a place we want to be in to have to climb out of all the time. Sooner or later it’s going to bite you in the ass."

A look at the total

After a nine-goal Game 2, there’s been a slight odds adjustment on the total, although the number remains 5. The Game 3 OVER is priced as the favorite, from -115 to -120 around Las Vegas, with UNDER offered at +100 to -105.

In Games 1 and 2, the UNDER was the favorite.

Asked why oddsmakers aren’t coming off 5 as the total, the LVH’s Ed Salmons told The Linemakers on Sporting News, “These two teams are defense-first teams, but for whatever reason, these games have been wide open. But it’s not like we’re getting a ton of money on the OVER. These games happen to be getting OVER, but the fundamentals of these two teams say they shouldn’t be playing these high-scoring games.

“I think it would probably take two more games of high scores to get off 5.”

Salmons says he’s not booking much UNDER action, but the volume of OVER bets isn’t enough to be influential. “We really just write OVER money, but it’s nothing to be concerned about,” he said.

Of the Kings 23 playoff games this season, 14 have gone OVER the total, with four pushes. The Rangers are a more evenly-distributed 8-8-6 O/U/P.

The Linemakers’ lean: Our Brian Blessing recommended playing the OVER throughout the series before it began – the bet obviously cashed in Game 2, and it pushed in Game 1 – and he’s not jumping off that train, despite having to lay money Monday night. Until the number gets to 5.5, keep playing it OVER.

Game 3 - Kings at Rangers
By Sportsbook.ag

2014 Stanley Cup Finals - L.A. Kings at N.Y. Rangers

Sportsbook.ag Line: New York -130, Los Angeles +110, Total: 5

The Rangers find themselves in a 2-0 series deficit after blowing another two-goal lead in Game 2, and now face a must-win contest against the confident Kings in Monday's Game 3.

Just like Game 1, New York did a great job of getting off to a fast start on the road, taking a 2-0 lead into the first intermission. The Rangers were still in great shape entering the final period with a 4-2 lead, but for the second consecutive game, L.A. was able to outshoot its opponent (44-38) and rallied for a 5-4 double-overtime victory. The Kings hurt themselves early by giving the puck away, and finished with 33 giveaways for the game, compared to only 15 for their opponent.

While L.A. made some big plays to get the win, Game 2 was marred by a controversial third goal, in which a penalty could have been called for goalie interference. But the goal ended up counting, and it gave the Kings momentum to eventually send the game to overtime.

Both goalies had their moments in the game, but also struggled at different times. Both offenses in the third period and overtime were able to put constant pressure on the goalies at the net, forcing both Henrik Lundqvist (39 saves on 44 attempts, .886 Sv Pct) and Jonathan Quick (34 saves on 38 attempts, .895 Sv Pct) to make some huge saves to keep their teams in the game.

For the New York, the club did exactly what teams need to do on the road, and that is get off to a good start. While it lost both of those games, it was very competitive each time, which should give the team momentum it heads back home where it is 26-25 this season, including 6-4 in the playoffs.

However, the Kings have shown to be a very good road team this season (30-24), including a 7-3 mark in the past 10 postseason away tilts, and have all the momentum entering Monday's contest.

Kings RW Justin Williams was the star of Game 1 after scoring the game-winning goal, and was once again dominant in Game 2, finishing with three assists and four shots on goal. RW Marian Gaborik (1 goal, four shots) has continued to be a star for the Kings, as he has done a terrific job of putting pressure on the opposing team’s goalie throughout the playoffs.

On Saturday night, it was RW Dustin Brown who played the role of hero, winning the game with his amazing mid-air deflection goal nearly 10 minutes into double overtime. Game 2 was a very physical contest with both teams nearly identical in hits (Rangers 51, Kings 50), and you can expect Game 3 to be every bit as physical.

Face-offs were also nearly identical with L.A. holding a slim 56-54 advantage. The Kings will have to play much better in the defensive end, as they can ill-afford to get down in Game 3 on the road. Jonathan Quick has gotten off to rough starts in the net, but Los Angeles has had too many breakdowns, allowing the Rangers to have too many easy scoring opportunities.

For New York, this series is much closer than the 2-0 series deficit indicates. The club has done a terrific job of using its speed early in the game, but has just run out of energy late in the contests. In Game 2, D Ryan McDonagh (1 goal, 1 assist) and RW Mats Zuccarello (1 goal, 1 assist, +2 rating) were able to get things going early for the Rangers, and will look to do the same at Madison Square Garden.

In New York’s last home game, Henrik Lundqvist pitched a shutout in a series-clinching victory against the Canadiens. In 10 home games this postseason, the Rangers have allowed only 2.0 goals per game, compared to 2.75 goals per game on the road. New York's penalty kill has been one of the best units in the NHL in the regular season, ranking third in the league (85.7%), and in this series, the club has once again been terrific against the power play, allowing the Kings to score only one goal on nine opportunities with the man advantage, and even scoring a short-handed goal in Game 1.

But the Rangers are only 1-for-8 on the power play this series. The home crowd in New York should give its club a huge boost, and that could play a big role as this team is only a couple of plays from being up 2-0 in this series. If the Rangers can get off to a quick start and keep up the energy for a full three periods, this has the makings of a long series.
