The Stanley Cup isn’t coming out yet.
The Los Angeles Kings probably put forth their best game of the Stanley Cup Final — outshooting the New York Rangers 41-19 for the game and 15-1 in the third period — but goalie Henrik Lundqvist and the goal line were able to help the Rangers get the first win of the series.
So, it goes back to Los Angeles on Friday night.
Former UND captain Matt Greene held an even rating and made four hits in 14:25 of ice time during Game 4. Greene and the Kings were able to hold the Rangers scoreless on three power-play chances. They are now scoreless in their last 11 man advantages.
But the Rangers were able to take a 2-0 lead and hold onto it this time, unlike Games 1 and 2.
