Greene moves one game from Cup

Former UND captain Matt Greene is now one game away from winning the Stanley Cup for the second time in three years.

Greene and the Kings won Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals 3-0 to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series. One more win and Greene is guaranteed to have his name etched on the Cup again.

Coach Darryl Sutter decided to stay with Greene in Game 3 and he scratched the now-healthy defenseman Robyn Regehr and it ended up being a very good decision. Greene played great in Game 3, earning the No. 2 star of the game from CBC. NBC also raved about his play.

The Los Angeles times wrote a piece on Greene, too.

Greene played 15:05 and registered a +1 rating. He was key on the penalty kill as the Kings blanked the Rangers on six chances with the extra man.

Since posting a -4 rating in his first playoff game of the year, Greene is +8.

Greene is trying to join Craig Ludwig, Jay Caufield and Jonathan Toews as the former UND players with multiple Cups.
