Or is it Broadway vs Hollywood? Perhaps Skyscrapers vs Palm Trees? Whatever the case, for the first time since the Yankees played the Dodgers in the 1981 World Series, a championship round in any sport featuring teams from NY and LA will face-off tonight, literally, as the Rangers play the Kings in hockey’s Stanley Cup Finals. The Kings look strong and are going for their 2nd Cup in 3 years after ousting a team going for their 3rd Cup in 4 years – the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks. The Rangers are the unquestioned underdogs after upending the Flyers, Pens & Habs to reach their first Finals in 20 years. Weird things happen in hockey, especially in the playoffs. The favorite often doesn’t come out on top. That said, Henrik Lundqvist will have to stand on his head in goal to keep the Blueshirts in this series. I say a Quick end. Kings in 5.
