Following the New York Rangers' 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings tonight in Game 4 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals, Henrik Lundqvist told NBC's Pierre McGuire that his team refused to get eliminated at home. But it was Lundqvist who single-handedly willed his squad to victory with 40 saves. Of course, Henrik got some help from an unexpected source: some soft ice which stopped the puck right at the line on two different occasions.
If the Kings got the lucky bounce, er, glide, L.A. would be hoisting the Cup right now. However, the series is now headed to the Staples Center where the Kings look to finish off the Blueshirts at home and avoid coming back to the Garden against a Rangers team who have won five straight games this postseason when facing elimination.
On Friday, both teams will square off in Game 5 at 8 p.m. ET.
