Game of the day: Rangers at Kings
By Covers.com

Los Angeles Kings at New York Rangers (-159, 5)

Kings lead series 3-1.

The Los Angeles Kings get a chance to capture their second championship in three years at home as they host the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final on Friday. After winning the first three contests to push New York to the brink of elimination, Los Angeles was unable to complete the sweep as it dropped a 2-1 decision at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. Benoit Pouliot and Martin St. Louis scored while Henrik Lundqvist made 40 saves as the Rangers improved to 11-2 in their last 13 elimination games and won their NHL-record eighth straight such contest at home.

Captain Dustin Brown netted the lone goal for the Kings, who had the opportunity to claim the Cup on the two-year anniversary of their first championship. Los Angeles outshot New York 15-1 in the third period of Game 4 and also dominated on faceoffs, winning 41 of the 65 draws. The Kings are 7-4 at home this postseason while the Rangers are 6-6 on the road.

LINE HISTORY: The Kings opened as -163 faves, dropped to -155 immediately after and have since moved up to -159

WHAT THE CAPPERS SAY: "The Kings were in a similar position in the Stanley Cup Final two years ago, jumping ahead in the series 3-0 before squandering a pair of opportunities to close out the series before ultimately winning it in Game 6. You can be sure they'll be focused on finishing the job on home ice on Friday after outplaying the Rangers but watching Henrik Lundqvist steal Game 4. The Rangers have expended a ton of energy in this series, first blowing two-goal leads in both Games 1 and 2 before getting shut out in Game 3 and finally getting in the win column in Game 4. It's hard to say whether they'll have enough left in the tank to get this series back to New York for Game 6." Covers Expert Sean Murphy.

WHAT THE BOOKS SAY: "A lot of people expect LA to hoist the cup on Friday, as heavy early action (88% of cash & 83% of bets) are on the Kings at -175." Mike Perry, Sportsbook.ag.

ABOUT THE KINGS: Contrary to expectation, Los Angeles has been outhit in three of the first four games of the series. The team has had the edge in faceoffs, barely outdueling New York in each of the first three contests before owning the category in Game 4. That's a hollow victory to Brown, who was disappointed that his club was unable to finish off the Rangers. "We weren't good enough to win," he said. "It's about finding a way to be better. It is an opportunity lost."

ABOUT THE RANGERS: Pouliot's goal 7:25 into Game 4 was New York's first tally since Derick Brassard scored at 14:50 of the second period in Game 2, ending a drought of 123 minutes, 1 second. The tally was Pouliot's second of the series, as he also netted the first goal of the final. St. Louis also tallied for the second time this series and has recorded a team-high eight goals in 24 playoff games after scoring only once in 19 regular-season contests after being acquired from Tampa Bay.

TRENDS:

* Over is 7-2-1 In Kings last 10 games.
* Home team is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
* Kings are 9-1 in their last 10 vs. Metropolitan.
* Over is 4-0-1 in Kings last five home games.

COVERS CONSENSUS: 64.78 percent of Covers Consensus bets are on the Kings.

Stanley Cup Finals Game 5 Odds and Pick
By: Ben Valentine
Sportingnews.com

The New York Rangers may have felt like the bounces in the Stanley Cup Final had not gone their way. Wednesday night, their bad luck was paid back and then some.

The Los Angeles Kings saw two shots stop on the goal line, including a chance with just over a minute left in regulation, allowing the Rangers to avoid the sweep with a 2-1 victory. The Kings arguably played their best game of the series and peppered Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist with 41 shots. But the bounces, for the most part, went New York’s way, meaning the teams head to Los Angeles for Game 5 on Friday (8 p.m. ET, NBC).

Having avoided becoming the first team since 1998 to be swept in the Stanley Cup Final, the Rangers now take aim at becoming the first team since World War II to rally from a 3-0 series deficit to win a Final.

As we’ve noted plenty of times throughout these playoffs, momentum can change quickly. The Kings rallied from 3-0 down in the first round against the San Jose Sharks and 3-2 down against the Anaheim Ducks in the second round, while the Rangers themselves erased a 3-1 deficit against the Pittsburgh Penguins, with three of their four victories in the series coming on the road.

Needing just a game to secure the title, the Kings are now -1400 favorites on the new series price posted at the LVH SuperBook, with the Rangers getting back odds of +800.

The odds for Game 5 have been adjusted from Games 1 and 2 in L.A., when the Kings were around -155 favorites at most Vegas shops. With a 3-1 lead, and after a game where they were unfortunate not to come out with the series-clinching victory, the LVH has made the Kings -170 for Game 5. The Rangers are +160.

The total for Game 5 remains at five goals. Back-to-back low-scoring games have moved the UNDER into favorite status at -120, though even with excellent efforts from both Lundqvist and Jonathan Quick, the game could have easily pushed had one of those Kings shots that stopped on the goal line gone in.

Linemakers lean: The Linemakers on Sporting News' Brian Blessing remains high on the OVER. “How many times were pucks sitting on the goal line begging to be tucked in,” Blessing asked rhetorically. “The series ends (in Game 5) and look for a high-scoring game.” Since -170 is a little rich, though, the play here is the OVER.

Game 5 - Rangers at Kings
By Sportsbook.ag

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

Sportsbook.ag Line: Los Angeles -180, New York +157, Total: 5

The Rangers were able to keep the series going with a win in Game 4, but now have to win on the road, as the Kings look to close the series out at home on Friday night.

For the third time in this series in Wednesday's Game 4, New York was able to take a 2-0 lead. This time though, the club was able to hang on, as Los Angeles had a final attempt in the final minute of the third period came up an inch short of the net. The Kings did score in the second period to make it a one-goal game, but in the end, Henrik Lundqvist was absolutely dominating with 40 saves on 41 shots.
   
In Game 3, the Kings were outshot 32-15, but did a much better job of attacking the net on Wednesday when they outshot the Rangers 41-19. A big reason why L.A. dominated in shot attempts was its dominance in winning 41-of-65 faceoffs. With Game 4 being at home, it was expected that New York would come out fired up and determined not to have its season end on home ice. However, now the Rangers have to head west, where they will have to figure out how to get a win.

New York showed in the first two games that it can compete on the road, but was unable to get the win. In those contests, the club did a great job of getting off to big leads, but could not hold them. While the Rangers were able to get the victory in Game 4, they can ill-afford to get outshot like they did on Wednesday night to extend the series. Lundqvist is the biggest reason why New York was able to get the victory, playing one of the best games of his career. Benoit Pouliot and Martin St. Louis were able to get goals for the Rangers in the game, but will need to do a much better job of attacking the Kings defense in this game.

New York did show to be the more physical team in Game 4 (32 to 27 in hits), and will need to continue to play with that physicality in Game 5. For the Rangers to have a chance to win the game, they will have to do exactly what they did in the first two games, and that is to build an early lead.

The Kings in Game 4 looked like a team that was not 100 percent ready to go from the start. As a team that has come back from a 3-0 series deficit, it was expected that L.A. would come out with the focus of ending the series. However, there were a lot of positives for the Kings to take out of this game, and the biggest one is the fact that they were able to get so many shots on goal against Lundqvist. In hockey, a goalie can get hot at any given time, making it nearly impossible to beat his team. The third period is when L.A. really cranked up the pressure, outshooting the Rangers 15-1. After an incredible Game 3 performance, Jonathan Quick was still pretty good on Wednesday (17 saves on 19 shots), but allowed the Rangers to build a two-goal lead for the third time in four contests.

Quick will have to return to his Game 3 performance level, as the Rangers will look to once again get off to a good lead. Dustin Brown scored the lone goal for the L.A. on Wednesday, while Tanner Pearson was extremely aggressive with eight shots on goal. If the Kings offense is attacking like they did in Game 4, they will be in great shape to get the victory and capture their second Stanley Cup in three years.
