Will the LA Kings Cinch the Stanley Cup Tonight?

Will the LA Kings Cinch the Stanley Cup Tonight?

The Los Angeles Kings are hoping to put an emphatic end to the NHL season tonight in New York.  

It's possible the Kings could become the first team to sweep a Stanley Cup Finals since 1998.

Should LA pull it off, it would be a crowning end to a remarkable post-season that saw the Kings fall into an 0-3 hole against San Jose in the first round, then become the fourth team to overcome that deficit in NHL history.  

And that could be a bit of motivation for the Rangers who have been taken to the brink of elimination with two overtime losses and a shutout loss in Game 3 despite outshooting the Kings 32-15. 

New York has never come back to win a series it trailed 3-0, but the Rangers rallied to knock out Pittsburgh in the second round this year after trailing 3-1.
