Rangers shut out Devils again, Prust faces supplemental discipline, Kings and Coyotes prepare for Game Four, and updates on the Flyers and Lightning.

 

Prust faces discipline for elbowing Volchenkov.

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS/NJ.COM: For the second time in three games, the Rangers were out-played in the first two periods, but thanks to Henrik Lundqvist’s strong goaltending and third period goals by Dan Girardi and Chris Kreider, blanked the Devils 3-0. The loss clearly upset Devils captain Zach Parise, who barely spoke to reporters post-game. Rangers forward Brandon Prust, meanwhile, faces a supplemental discipline hearing today for his elbow to the head of Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov.

LOS ANGELES TIMES/ARIZONA REPUBLIC: If the Kings defeat the Phoenix Coyotes today, they’ll set an NHL playoff record for the fewest games played (12-1) by a Stanley Cup finalist since the best-of-seven format for the entire post-season was adopted in 1987. The Coyotes, of course, hope to stave off elimination today to send the series back to Phoenix for Game Five.

CSNPHILLY.COM: Five Flyers – Kimmo Timonen, James van Riemsdyk, Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Matt Carle – have either had surgery or are recovering from recent surgery.

TAMPABAY.COM: Lack of goaltender development has been a big franchise failure for the Tampa Bay Lightning, which explains why they’re courting former Bolts draft pick (2006) Riku Helenius.

    LA Kings are intense. I’ve never seen a team on such a dominate march to the Cup.
