What began Monday night as raucous a Madison Square Garden I've ever seen ended in a dejected, disappointed exit as the Rangers were pushed to the brink of elimination. As has been the case all series, the Rangers were not dominated by any stretch, and possibly played their best game of the series. But it just wasn't how the puck bounced (which I'll get to in a few hours in another post). Until then, here are your morning notes.
Goals from former Flyers Jeff Carter and Mike Richards sandwiched a Jake Muzzin tally as the Kings took Game 3 3-0 to grab an identical series advantage. They're all "must-wins" now. Some recaps from Monday night. [Blueshirt Banter] [NY Post] [ESPN NY] [Daily News] [The Record] [Newsday] [Blueshirts United]
