Tonight the series-leading Los Angeles Kings face off against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden in what could be the Stanley Cup final.

Knowing the odds are against them with L.A. having taken three of seven in a row, the mood among the Rangers is not great right now.

"I'm not going to lie to you," Rangers captain Brad Richards said yesterday. "It's pretty much impossible to be upbeat today. But you have to be professional and the series is not over."


2. Ontario votes tomorrow

Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath spoke with the Toronto Sun editorial board for an article published last night.

Polls suggest the Hamilton MPP is in third place, but Horwath says she has no regrets about triggering an election.

“Ontarians are tired of that (Liberal) corruption and that’s one of the factors frankly that I had in my head when I decided not to vote for that budget.”

4. Tracy Morgan’s mom not welcome at hospital

Tracy Morgan’s estranged mother was turfed from the hospital where the comedian and actor has been in critical condition since the weekend.

Alicia Warden was later allowed to spend five minutes by her son’s bedside on Sunday, but complained to TMZ that she couldn’t be alone with him.

She claims her future daughter-in-law, Megan Wollover, didn’t call her, and that she had to hear about the accident on TV.

The crash killed comedy writer James McNair and injured several others on Saturday in New Jersey.


5. Mounties laid to rest

All eyes were on Moncton yesterday afternoon as the city buried three officers shot to death last week.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who was among thousands in attendance, said the ambush was an attack on Canadians’ way of life.

"By its very nature, the murder of those sworn to uphold the law is an attack not only on them but upon all of us, on our families, our communities, our neighbours, our very society itself."
