Bring out your brooms, ladies and gentlemen because we are 1 game away from a sweep. Yes, the LA Kings are just 1 win away from sweeping the New Jersey Devils and raising their first Stanley Cup Champion banner. Game 3 featured an untouchable LA team. I feel any team in the league right now would have trouble beating them. They chose to become hot at the right time.
Well, what the Devils have to do is simple: play with desperation. Leave every ounce of energy you have on the ice. Take every shot. Their biggest problem has been the powerplay which is shocking because they had the best powerplay during the regular season. In Game 3, the Devils had a 5 on 3 opportunity and didn’t score. In the Finals, you HAVE to take advantage of that and score. The next thing is they have had huge problems trying to get a puck past Jonathan Quick. The guy is a beast though. There’s not much else to say except the Devils would have to win every game here on out to take the title. Is it possible, sure. Will it actually happen, no. This LA team is too hot right now.
For the LA Kings, try not to let any pressure get to you. Play hard like you normally do and take advantage of the crowd because you know for a fact they will be loud. Enjoy the moment, you are up 3-0 and are 1 game away from winning the title in front of your fans. The Kings have been scoring first all series and don’t let it stop now. If the Kings get an early lead, keep pressing hard and don’t let up because New Jersey has come back before and they will again. Jonathan Quick: keep being ridiculously amazing. He has been playing out of this world good and he definitely deserves MVP at the end of this.
Enjoy the game either way. It could be a very exciting finish to this season! You can watch Game 4 on the NBC Sports Network starting at 8pm.
