The Los Angeles Kings have a chance to make short work of the New York Rangers as they try to capture the 2014 Stanley Cup with a four-game series sweep on Wednesday.
After a long playoff road, it's ironic that the Kings find themselves in position to complete such a short final. The 2014 Kings are the first team in NHL history to win three straight seven-game series to advance to the final round, playing every possible game along the way. They've won three straight against the Rangers and are now on the cusp of a championship.
For their part, New York will come out trying to win a Stanley Cup Final game at Madison Square Garden for the first time since the Vancouver Canucks were defeated in a nail-biting Game 7 in 1994. In a Stanley Cup elimination game, everything will be on the line.
Here's a look at the potential hurdles each team will face in Game 4, along with their keys to victory.
