The Kings are just one win away from their second Stanley Cup! Would they take Game 4 from the Rangers and sweep the final round?
These rhetorical questions are likely absurd since anyone reading this already knows the outcome, but such thoughts were circling through the heads of Keith, Sean, Ryan, Anthony, and Matt as you can see below in the contemporary text thread.
Today’s link: When you are starved for hockey content, sometimes you need to sneak across the border for your fix, and that is why we turn to TSN, Canada’s version of ESPN (meaning way more NHL coverage… and way less NFL). In addition to compiling all relevant hockey content coming from the Canadian Press, like this delightful story about Drew Doughty and the demise of San Jose, staff writers like Scott Cullen provide stellar game recaps.
And a bonus, since it’s mentioned by Sean in the text thread–Helene Elliott, a great hockey writer for the LA Times, penned this feature on Darryl Sutter.

Why is no one talking about the fact that we are on the verge of back to back FULL season titles, tossing out that lockout shortened season?
3 straight trips to the conference finals. THREE.
Matt, clearly you had the good luck juices flowing last game. Can you watch tonight?
I will likely be an hour or so behind. Bedtime routine gets everything off track. Keith, if I get any texts about the game I’ll blame you entirely.
Got it, Matt. I won’t f___ up this time.
Thanks. And like I said, if you do slip up, it’s Keith’s fault.
Oh, don’t tempt me
I can see Tony’s evil grin through text message
You bet your sweat pants.
Oh you bet your squishy boots.
Watching on my phone, texting on my iPad, all while rehearsing a show. So I may be a bit behind.
Eat it NYC
I’m a fan of our chances. Also, can Chris Kreider just not grow a beard, or is he worried about missing some “sweet pooooonanny”?
You better not be talking about Kreider’s Van Dyke
I think Kreider misinterpreted playoff beard to be scuzzy facial hair meticulously trimmed.
2-1 NY still, but with 8 mins to go we hold a 9-1 shot diff.
Reminds me of Henrique in 2012. He lost that series.
Kreider does, I mean.
We win it in LA!!!
What gentlemen these Rangers are.
You can tell by Kreider’s Van Dyke.
I kinda just fell in love with Henrik Lundqvist.
Definitely. Not worried about the next game.
Rangers are not gonna last regardless.
So can the Rangers now stop whining about puck luck?
They can just shut the f___ up and die in LA.
F___! Uli was pretty solid in net though.
Thanks a lot, I still haven’t watched the game
=D I keed, I keed
I think this game proves that when we group text, the Kings win. When we don’t….
Haha exactly. I’ll make Bea watch Friday night.
Clearly. I blame Matt
