 LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Kings already know there's no place like home ice for a coronation.
They've got the chance to lift the Stanley Cup at Staples Center again when they host the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the finals on Friday night, giving the ultimate celebration to their long-suffering fans for the second time in three years.
The Kings insist they're not bothered by their inability to finish in New York. Jarret Stoll says they're only focused on a good start to Game 5.
Henrik Lundqvist gave the Rangers hope with his 40-save performance in Game 4, earning another cross-country trip for the Eastern Conference champions.
And the Rangers have ample reason to be comfortable at Staples Center, where they never trailed in their two series-opening overtime losses.
