tough loss

Rangers were defeated tonight by a very good LA Kings team.  It's now 3-0 in the best of seven series.  Give credit to Jonathon Quick who made terrific saves for the Kings.

In the first series of the playoffs the Kings were down 3-0 to the Sharks and came back to win four straight.  Hockey is the only sport where teams down 3-0 have occasionally come back to win. (Baseball's Red Sox are the only baseball team to come back from such a deficit. No team in basketball has ever come back down 3-0).  So, the Kings still need another win.  And Quick is due to have a weak game.  I have just watched an interview with him.  He looks like he is not yet 20.

It will be miraculous if the Rangers come back.  I do like the Broadway Blues in game 4 which means that any reader should bet the farm on the Kings.  But I like the Rangers in game 4 and then again in 5.  Then game 6 is at home.  And by the seventh the Rangers will have the momentum.

We'll see.
