(PIX11) – After taking Game 4 of the Stanley Cup series, the Rangers are still just one loss away from forfeiting the championship to the Los Angeles Kings.

MSG sports analyst Ron Duguay predicted that New York would make it to the Cup finals, but on Thursday said it’s harder to predict whether the Rangers will bring home the championship.

It’s the team’s first chance in 20 years.

“Well, they’re in a little bit of a hole right now, it’s hard to do, especially in the finals, because it’s different than the other rounds,” Duguay said, adding that the Kings “have a taste” for the Cup, which they won two years ago.

The Rangers now head back to Los Angeles for Friday’s Game 5. Kings lead the series 3-1.
