LOS ANGELES KINGS - 2014 STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS

Post  Admin on Sat Jun 14, 2014 2:15 pm



The longest postseason for the Los Angeles Kings led into the longest game they had ever played. After 94 minutes of intense hockey, Alec Martinez scored 14:43 into the second overtime off a rebound from Henrik Lundqvist's pads as the Kings became the 2014 Stanley Cup Champions for the second time in three years with a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers in Game 5 in front of a capacity crowd in L.A.

Marian Gaborik scored a tying power-play goal in the 3rd period for the Kings, who rallied from yet another deficit before finishing off the Rangers in the finals' third overtime game at Staples Center.



Goaltender Jonathan Quick made 28 saves and Conn Smythe Trophy winner (MVP) Justin Williams scored an early goal as Los Angeles added a second title to their 2012 championship, the first in the franchise's 47-year history.

After fighting through three straight seven-game series to emerge from the tough Western Conference, the Kings won the first three games of the finals, starting with consecutive OT wins on goals by Williams and Dustin Brown.

Game 5 was the Kings' 26th playoff game of the spring, matching the NHL record for the longest postseason run. Los Angeles has played 64 playoff games over the last three years, setting another league record.
