Was Lance Stephenson behind Rangers' Game 4 puck luck?
The New York Rangers avoided elimination vs. the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night with a 2-1 win at the Garden, and the win didn't come without its fair share of puck luck.
Was Indiana's Lance Stephenson up to his old tricks on Wednesday?
The New York Rangers avoided elimination at the hands of the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final with a 2-1 win at the Garden Wednesday night.
Though the Blueshirts’ victory didn’t come without its fair share of puck luck.
Not one but two Kings shots stopped short of lighting the lamp and instead sat stubbornly on the goal line.
“Thank god for soft ice now and then,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said in his postgame press conference.
Or perhaps some other unseen force helped keep the puck out.
Maybe Pacers guard Lance Stephenson — who infamously blew in LeBron James' ear earlier in the NBA playoffs — was up to his old tricks.
