The Stanley Cup Final heads to the Staples Center as game three of the series kicks off at 8 tonight on NBC Sports Network. The Los Angeles Kings, thanks to two overtime goals, hold a two games to nil series advantage over the New Jersey Devils.

The Kings turned some heads earlier today when they announced that Simon Gagne, fresh off the IR, will enter the lineup tonight for the first time since December. Word is that Brad Richardson will be the scratch to make room for Gagne.

Can Jonathan Quick keep up his masterful pace or is tonight the night that the Devils offense, lead by Zach Parise, Ilya Kovalchuk, Travis Zajac and Patrik Elias, breaks through? Stop by and leave a comment about the game, the trade earlier today that sent Tomas Vokoun to Pittsburgh, or anything else going on in the world of hockey.
