(Sports Network) The eighth-seeded Los Angeles Kings will try to earn their
first berth in the Stanley Cup Final since 1993 when they host the Phoenix
Coyotes today in Game 4 of the Western Conference final. Jake Long Jersey . Join TSN.ca at 3pm et/Noon
pt for our Live Game Blog and a chance to get interactive with the TSN
Community. The Kings have jumped out to a 3-0 lead in this best-of-seven series
and are one win away from making just their second trip to the Cup Finals in
franchise history. The 1993 team led by Wayne Gretzky made it to the final stage
19 years ago, but lost in five games to Montreal. Los Angeles is also trying to
post another four-game sweep after eliminating the second-seeded St. Louis
Blues, 4-0, in the conference semifinals. The Kings had never swept a seven-game
series in their history before making quick work of the Blues in the last round.
After taking Game 3 in Los Angeles by a 2-1 score, the Kings are now 11-1 this
postseason and have won eight straight games since losing Game 4 against
Vancouver in the opening round. L.A. goaltender Jonathan Quick only needed to
make 18 saves in Thursdays win, while Dwight King scored the game-winner in the
third period. “Its the same feeling as after the first game,” said Quick. “You
dont get anything for three wins. Were going to go back to work tomorrow and get
ready for Game 4. We know what we have ahead of us. We know Phoenix is going to
come out hard in Game 4 and were going to be ready.” The third-seeded Coyotes,
who are in the conference finals for the first time in franchise history, will
need to pull off the improbable 3-0 comeback to make their first trip to the Cup
Finals. Only three teams in NHL history have won a seven-game series after
losing the first three games. The Philadelphia Flyers were the last club to
achieve the 3-0 comeback when they beat Boston in the 2010 Eastern Conference
semifinals. Daymond Langkow scored the lone goal for Phoenix in Game 3, while
Mike Smith made 26 saves in the loss. “It was a tight game all the way through,”
said Phoenix head coach Dave Tippett. “We didnt create a lot, but we hung around
the game, gave ourselves a chance to win. I think were not generating enough to
put any pressure on them.” The winning goal came just 1:47 into the third when
King got the puck out of a scrum in the right corner and skated out to the
circle before firing a shot high over the left shoulder of Smith. “I shot it
high to the glove side,” said King. “The biggest goals of my career keep getting
bigger. Im just happy to be here and Im feeling pretty good with my game right
now. I dream about this and its working out well for our team.” Quick didnt need
to do too much to preserve the lead as he had to make just four saves in the
final period. Phoenix played the game without forward Martin Hanzal, who was
handed a one
game suspension for boarding Dustin Brown in Game 2. In addition
to Hanzals return, the Coyotes could also have veteran defenseman Adrian Aucoin
back today. Aucoin has missed the first three games of this series with an
undisclosed injury suffered in the clinching game of the last round against
Nashville, but has said he is ready to go for today. The Coyotes are 4-2 on the
road in this years playoffs, while Los Angeles is 4-1 at home. Phoenix will host
Game 5 on Tuesday if it wins todays game. This matchup marks the first time the
Kings and Coyotes are meeting in the postseason, but the Pacific rivals did face
each other six times during the 2011-12 campaign. The Kings and Coyotes split
the season series and three of the meetings went past regulation. Cameron Wake Jersey . —Joey Logano had
wasted enough shots at winning Dover to feel like he was on the brink of doing
it again. Dan Marino Jersey . Hughes finished in the
peloton, 55 seconds back of Germanys Claudia Hausler and American Evelyn
Stevens. That final-stage breakaway gave Stevens the Tour win and firmly
cemented her claim to a berth on the U. http://www.dolphinsteamstore.com/karlos-dansby-jerseys

bought the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1950 and moved them to Los Angeles before the
1958 season. Reggie Bush Jersey . Second-seeded Alexandr
Dolgopolov faced No. 8 Sam Querrey in the second semifinal. Haas, the German

Network) – French Open runner-up Dinara Safina highlighted Mondays first-round
winners at the Ordina Open, a final tune-up for Wimbledon. The third-seeded

Autotron Rosmalen. The surging Safina has now won 13 of her last 14 matches,
with her lone setback coming at the hands of Ana Ivanovic in the final at Roland
Garros. Day-2 upsets came when American Ashley Harkleroad knocked out
fourth-seeded Italian Francesca Schiavone 6-3, 6-4 and Indian Sania Mirza
dismissed fifth- seeded Italian Flavia Pennetta 6-4, 6-3. Mirza is in her second
week back after missing three months of action with a wrist injury. Additional
