Opponent Notes:
- The winner of Game 1 has gone on to win the Stanley Cup title 77% of the time since 1939.

- Anze Kopitar has just one goal in his last 15 games. He also won just 9 of 21 faceoffs in Game 1 after winning 54.4% in his first 21 postseason games.

- Jeff Carter has points in eight of his last nine games (6g, 8a).

- Marian Gaborik was pointless with a -1 in Game 1.

- Justin Williams has 13 points (4g, 9a) in the last 11 games.

- Drew Doughty has eight points (4g, 4a) in the last eight games.

- Jarret Stoll won just 50% of his faceoffs in Game 1 after winning 57% in his previous 21 postseason games.

- The Kings are 17-for-71 on the power play this postseason and have allowed 15 goals in 83 power play opportunities against.

- My thoughts & prayers go out to Tracy Morgan who is in critical condition after a car accident this morning in New Jersey. Here’s a great parody he did of the Rangers 24/7 series…
