Hope Quick looks more like 2012 Quick than the one he's looked like in the last few games of this series, that's for sure.

I don't know what to think in terms of who would be the better matchup. Let's just hope LA and Gaborik get the Cup.

 

LA has scored a ton.

 

My feeling is the Rangers will need their top scorers to actually score and they haven't all playoff. It's hard to keep that going. They'll need more from Richards, Nash. We'll see. Let's hope.

From what I could tell here on the board, more people than not wanted the Kings to face the Rags, well.  Here it is.

If only Montreal hadn't overachieved... an LA v Boston series would have been way more entertaining

There should be side-bets in Vegas on which city will have more phonies and celebrities in their respective crowds.

LA is not a big ratings market for the NHL. So far the ratings coming from LA locally in the playoffs have not been good. For example, NBA games that include teams not even close to LA have done significantly larger ratings than Kings games in LA. I expect that to continue in the Cup Finals.

 

On the other hand, Chicago is a ratings juggernaut. Chi/NYR would be the NHL's dream matchup. The NY/LA matchup might have national intrigue though.

 

Just read that Kenny Albert will be calling Game 1 of the Finals as there has been a death in Doc's family.

Ugh, the Rags get the only team that has played more games than them!

 

I still think the big Kings are a better matchup for Devils fans hoping that the Rags will lose (that's all of us, right?)

Yes, Quick's stats are not up to par, but you all are missing the the fact that Quick has face more shots than anyone in the playoffs....Quick has faced almost 80 more shots than Lundquist.  Is it the team bailing Quick out?  Or maybe the Kings suck at defense.  Yes, SV% is a huge part of the argument, but its difficult for a goalie to maintain a high SV% when he faces a high volume of shots every night and Quick has made some amazing saves in the Chicago series, despite his shoddy SV%, one stop on the Hawks on a big chance very late in the 3rd.

The Kings just went through the gauntlet of San Jose, Anaheim, Chicago. Not a shocker that they faced the most shots of those 4 Conference Finals teams since they played the most games against the toughest teams. It's really a non-story.

Or maybe LA has played more games than everyone else, thus more shots

Or maybe Quick has been below average for awhile and largely average in his career

Or maybe Quick is forced to make amazing saves because he is often out of position

LA has pretty much dragged Quick through the playoffs
