The top-seeded New York Rangers, who have been favored to win the Stanley Cup for quite a bit of this season, are in danger of facing another 3-1 deficit if they lose to the Lightning tonight. Sure, they beat the Washington Capitals after facing that deficit, and sure they also did it in a series last year, but do the Rangers really want to tempt fate one more time?

KEY TO THE GAME

Does God like the Triplets more than He likes the Rangers? According to an article at NHL.com, a pastor in Tampa Bay thinks so. Check out the following tweets.

Apparently, retired Lightning player Dave Andreychuck likes that pastor now.

So here's the key question for tonight: Can the New York Rangers overcome God? We shall see.
