The Kings were THIS CLOSE to tying Game 4

If you want to score against the New York Rangers, you have to beat Henrik Lundqvist and then get the puck past Anton Stralman.


Anton Stralman has been the New York Rangers' best defenseman this postseason, a development that is sure to get him a huge contract offer this summer as an unrestricted free agent.

He made perhaps his best play of the playoffs late in the first period of Game 4 when he swiped a puck off the goal line just before it could slowly roll into the net. It would have been a game-tying goal for the Los Angeles Kings, and was off of an Alec Martinez shot that trickled through Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist.

That sequence happened just minutes after Rangers took an early lead on a Benoit Pouliot goal.
