The LA Kings have the distinction of being the first team to play the full 21 games in the three playoff rounds and advance to the Stanley Cup final. This means that every playoff series reached a game 7 and the Kings won, which also made Kings coach Darryl Sutter the winningest Game 7 coach in NHL history.

Along with having home ice advantage in the Stanley Cup final, the LA Kings are understandably the favourites considering that they are coming out of the Western Conference and have beaten the three best regular season teams to get to the Stanley Cup Final.

Coming into these playoffs, the Kings were thought to be a low scoring team but have experienced an offensive explosion and scored 73 post-season goals. During the regular season, the Kings averaged 2.42 goals per game, but in the playoffs they are averaging a staggering 3.48.

On the other hand, the NY Rangers have scored only 51 playoff tallies, and have relied on timely goals from heroes like Martin St. Louis in low scoring games. Much of this series will rest on the shoulders of Henrik Lundqvist, because if he is not able to stop the newly-found offensive attack of the Kings, then this series could be over quickly.
