The New York Rangers got really lucky - twice - in their 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. The win avoided the Kings sweeping the Rangers. The Rangers felt they deserved to get some luck after losing the first two games in overtime and not getting many of the lucky bounces that the Kings were getting. They got that plus some tonight when the puck beat Lundqvist on two occasions and simply sat on the goal line as players from both teams scrambled to get to the loose puck.

The first instance was earlier in the game when an Alec Martinez shot beat Lundqvist. Before Jeff Carter could get to the puck, Anton Stralman swiped it away.

The next instance was with about a minute left in the game as the Kings had goaltender Jonathan Quick pulled for the extra attacker. The Rangers were still hanging on to a one goal lead, which they spent the entire third period clinging onto. A puck again beat Lundqvist through the legs and sat on the goal line. Nobody could get a stick on it, and it would be a penalty shot awarded to the Kings if any Ranger aside from the goaltender covers the puck in the crease. So Derek Stepan did his best to push the puck into Lundqvist without covering the puck with his glove. It was pretty close and very lucky for the Rangers.
