The 2014 Stanley Cup Final has begun between the Kings and Rangers, and many NHL fans are wondering which player will be walking home with the 2014 Conn Smythe Trophy awarded to the playoff MVP. The Kings currently have a 3-1 series lead after coming back to win Game 1 in overtime 3-2 and Game 2 in double overtime 5-4. LA has been incredibly balanced, getting production from every line, which has made the race wide open during the entire playoffs.
The following table displays the current Conn Smythe odds from Sportsbook.com:
|Martin St. Louis||Rangers||+350|
Though the Rangers opened as the underdog in the series, Henrik Lundqvist was listed as the favorite to win the Conn Smythe Trophy, but that has changed going down 1 games to one. He still posts an impressive 2.16 goals against average (GAA) and a.925 save percentage but has moved from +250 to +1000 to win it.
The Kings are now -1200 favorites to win the Stanley Cup at Sportsbook.com and defenseman Drew Doughty and forward Anze Kopitar lead the Conn Smythe Trophy race at +150.
