New Jersey Devils at Los Angeles Kings, Game 3, 8:00 Eastern, NBC Sports and CBC

Well, this could be it folks. The Los Angeles Kings could do what no team has done in the modern era of hockey: win the Cup with only two losses. They could bring the city of LA its first Stanley Cup Championship in its 45-year history. They could be Cinderella and nail the prince after the ball. There are some other big possibilities tonight. From NHL.com:

Quick currently has the lowest goals against average (1.36) and the highest save percentage (.950) in NHL playoff history among goaltenders with at least 13 games played in one postseason. He has a .974 save percentage in the Cup Final -- Patrick Roy's .976 save percentage in 1996 for Colorado is the record.

I dig Quick and all, but let's not take down St. Patrick's record, mmmmkay?

The Devils have a tough fight ahead of them. A failed 5-on-3 and a questionable first goal against in Game 3 derailed them completely, allowing the Kings to dominate the game. New Jersey simply has to be better than that. They have to rise above the emotion and play hockey. If they are able to win tonight, they will "become only the sixth team in 26 tries to win Game 4 in the Final after losing the first three contests." (NHL.com)

Sorry, boys, my money's on the guys from the West Coast.

BTW, if you haven't seen it, Dater wrote a nice article about Kings fans and the Kings organization did some good.
