These two Stanley Cup squads have both been better on the road than at home this year which makes the Rangers’ stiff test in game 3 that much more difficult.

Around 75% of tracked NHL bettors are taking the Rangers to win in game 3 with most online sportsbooks listing New York at around -140 odds. Los Angeles has now won 3 straight and 4 of their last 5 head-to-head meetings against the Rangers after winning 3-2 in overtime in game 1 and 5-4 in overtime in game 2.

New York goalie Henrik Lundquist hasn’t had time to breath as his defense has let him down in a big way by allowing a total of 87 shots on goal in those 2 Stanley Cup Finals matchups thus far. The total for Monday’s clash is set at over or under 5 goals and even though the over was a winner in game 2 it had previously not won in 4 straight between the Rangers and the Kings.

The Rangers aren’t exactly slumping offensively either as they put up 38 shots on goal of their own in game 2 but they simply haven’t found a way to stop the Kings from getting quality looks at the net. Both teams have shot 26 or more times in 6 straight head-to-head meetings between the Kings and the Rangers as they seem to both enjoy a fast paced game when they meet up.
