GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The NHL announced the dates for the Stanley Cup finals, starting a week from Wednesday at the home of the Eastern Conference champion.
Either the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils, who are competing for the East title, would have home ice because they compiled better regular-season point totals than the Kings or the Phoenix Coyotes. The Kings need one more victory over the Coyotes to earn the West title and the teams will meet Tuesday night at Jobing.com Arena in Phoenix, the Kings' a second opportunity to clinch their first Cup finals berth since 1993.
