Mandatory Credit: Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY SportsAfter a long, hard road through the Western Conference playoffs, the Los Angeles Kings have made it to the Stanley Cup Final, where they'll play the New York Rangers.

This is a matchup of two of the premier goaltenders in the game, with LA's Jonathan Quick and New York's Henrik Lundqvist.

The Kings had to battle through a hard battle with the Chicago Blackhawks, after repelling the Sharks and the Ducks.

The Rangers beat the Flyers, Penguins and Canadiens in their road to the Final. They needed 7 games to beat the Flyers and Penguins, but dispatched of the Habs in 6 games.

The Kings went to 7 games with all three playoff opponents on their road toward the Cup.

This should be an outstanding series, with the Kings coming in as slight favorites. But with Lundqvist playing as well as he has been playing, anything can happen. This should be a great series.
