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.
