Kings v Rangers Game 3 - NHL Betting Preview

Posted by Andrew Monroe on 6/9/2014 11:20:12 AM

Los Angeles Kings (+119) at New York Rangers (-131)


STANLEY CUP FINALS – Game 3 Monday, 8:00pm ET
Kings Lead Series 2-0

It's crazy that the Los Angeles Kings have a 2-0 series lead without ever having a lead during game action. This is a result of heroic comeback wins in regulation that then pushed them into overtime to produce sudden-death winners.

The Rangers come back home to New York trying to forget how close they were to stealing wins on the road against the heavy favorites. The Broadway Blueshirts hope that Madison Square Garden will give them the strength and support to hold onto any potential leads for good this time. If not, they will be one game away from elimination

Rangers' forward, Mats Zuccarello expressed his sediments on what happened in L.A. and where they are now. "We played two good games," he said Sunday after the Rangers returned to New York. "We didn't get the bounces in OT. We've got to limit our mistakes. I think we're a confident group. I think we played the best hockey. We'll have our fans, the best fans in the world, but it's two good teams. I don't know how much it's going to mean. Hopefully the fans are going to be behind us, and we'll get a good boost."

There is no doubt that the Kings have the Rangers on the ropes after their second heartbreaking overtime loss. It's tough to swallow after bringing your 'A' game twice, only to be have victory slip between your fingers.

The good news for the Rangers is that they have already experienced a rally in this playoffs, coming back from 3-1 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. They are currently -131 favorites to win on the money line in Game 3 (Kings +119) because they have the fight in them and they will be playing with extreme urgency in front of the New York faithful. The Ranger players proved they can play with the Kings and will get one game closer to tying up the series tonight in a must win Game 3.
If you are a big believer that a win tonight will ignite a Stanley Cup title comeback, then jump aboard the prosperous +435 odds for the Rangers to win the series.
