Go Kings.

Series isn't over, but it's damn close. NJD has to come out fast tonight and try to take control of this game and quiet the crowd...

But with that, I predict a Quick shutout, 2-0 Kings.

Is Tarasenko really projected to be a more physical version of Ovechkin?

So just how good could Tarasenko be for the Blues? Well, consider the player his game is most often compared to right now is that of Alex Ovechkin (actually, a more physical version of Ovechkin), and it's easy to start feeling a bit...hyperbolic. Tarasenko is not going to come in next season and play at that kind of level. But he has those kind of skills. He has that kind of ability on the offensive side. For a team that was such a defensive powerhouse this past season, but often struggled to score enough to support that defense, the addition of a player with Tarasenko's abilities is beyond simply exciting.

Just wait until Quick actually steals a game...

Kings defensemen are so good moving the puck and gaining the zone, its really the polar opposite of what the Devils saw vs the Rangers and especially the Flyers. Philly d was so damn immobile and was incredibly handcuffed by the Devils fore-check. Watching Doughty dominate out there is a thing of beauty. When the Kings clinched the WCF, my prediction was if they play the Rangers, Kings in 4. If they played the Devils, Kings in 5.

Sad to say Brodeur has been the best player out there for the Devils thus far.

Kill Jeff Kill!

Sooner the finals are over the sooner we can start seeing some off season moves. Hopefully that is, granted probably still won't see much until the draft.

McIlrath is better. Don't worry.

Hard to compare the two players. That's not really my question. I knew Tarasenko was a gifted scorer...but I wasn't aware he was a physical force on the ice as well.

Vokoun's rights to Pittsburgh for a 7th.

I thought teams weren't allowed to trade until the draft?

There was a reason why so many of us wanted him. It's going to be tough watching him develop into a force once he makes his way over to NA.

The games not even on NBC? So potentially the Cup can be won and it won't be on basic tv.

Come on Kings fans! Make some noise.

Well "The games not on NBC?" indicates you're talking about tonight's game. Sorry.

Love how the Kings insist on carrying the puck into the Devils' zone. Refreshing

If the Kings win tonight, I'd be very surprised if NBC didn't switch game 4 over to the main network.
