Stanley Cup Final Tips
Rangers vs. Kings

How they got here: New York was taken to the limit in the each of the first two rounds against Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, while finishing off Montreal in six games of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Rangers rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the second round to stun the Penguins with three straight wins, as New York is headed to its first Stanley Cup Final since 1994.

The Kings were one loss away from elimination in the opening round after falling behind the Sharks, 3-0. Los Angeles stormed back with four straight wins to stun San Jose, 4-3, then needed seven games in the second round to knock out another California rival, beating the Ducks, 4-3. Again in the conference finals, the Kings held off the Blackhawks, 4-3, capped off by a victory in Game 7 on the road. Los Angeles is seeking its second championship in three seasons after beating New Jersey in 2012.

Season series recap: Back in October on New York’s lengthy opening road swing, the Rangers downed the Kings, 3-1 at Staples Center as +130 underdogs. On November 17, the Kings picked up revenge with a 1-0 victory as +105 ‘dogs at Madison Square Garden. Kings’ star goalie Jonathan Quick did not start that shutout, as since departed Ben Scrivens made 37 stops in the Los Angeles net.

Record vs. opposite conference:
Rangers: 14-13-1
Kings: 21-8-3

Recent Stanley Cup Final history: The Western Conference champion has hoisted the Cup in five of the past seven championship rounds, including each of the last two seasons (Chicago 2013 and Los Angeles 2012). The last four-game sweep came in 1998 when the Red Wings finished off the Capitals. Each of the last five Stanley Cup Finals have gone at least six games, with the Final in 2009 and 2011 going the distance.

Series price:
Los Angeles: -165
New York: +140
