The Los Angeles Kings are like a villain in a horror movie. Just when you think they’re dead, they rise up again and hit you even harder. The New York Rangers have found this out first hand over the first two games of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final. Game 2 needed two overtimes to determine a winner Saturday night at Staples Center, and like so many of their victories this postseason, the Kings erased multiple deficits before scoring the final goal. “I think the way we play, everyone is talking about how we come back,” Kings captain Dustin Brown, who scored the game-winner, said postgame. “I think it’s more how we turn the tide of the game over the course of the game. We’re not worried about scoring the game winning goal. We’re worried about just playing our game, grinding away. It starts with one. That’s what our mentality is. Whether we’re down two, up two, the situation doesn’t change for us.” Just like in Game 1, New York jumped out to a 2-0 first-period lead. It was the third straig...

Kings making the unusual the norm after another comeback win in 2OT

LOS ANGELES -- Slow starts, overtime wins. It's almost becoming routine for the Los Angeles Kings who, despite their 2-0 series lead over the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Final, like to make things significantly more difficult for themselves. But the Kings, as we all know, are the toughest out in the NHL, so the fact that they came back from yet another 2-0 deficit to...

VIDEO: Controversial Goal Starts Kings’ Comeback In Game 2 Win

The Los Angeles Kings defeated the New York Rangers 5-4 in double overtime to take a 2-0 series lead in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night.

With the Rangers leading 4-2 early in the third period, Kings winger Dwight King went into the crease as Willie Mitchell...

(Video) Dwight King's controversial goal - Game Two

#450253954 / gettyimages.comI listened to this game on my XM Radio and I wanted to see video of the goal in question before I commented on it. I think Henrik Lundqvist has a valid complaint here. From my perspective, it looks like L.A. Kings forward Dwight King uses the contact with Ryan McDonagh to interfere with Lundqvist. I think that this should have been called goalie interference...

NHL rulebook fails the Rangers and Stanley Cup Final

The NHL should very gravely concerned over the outcome of game two in the Stanley Cup Final. A blown call and an inadequate rulebook left an indelible mark on the pinnacle of the NHL season. In a game where the Rangers were winning 4-2 in the third period, Dwight King tipped in a goal while clearly interfering with Henrik Lundqvist. It is indisputable that the goal should not have...

Lundqvist and Rangers Angry Over Goal in Game Two

The Los Angeles Kings have cooled off the New York Rangers two games in a row now. Coming back from two goals down for back to back overtime victories.

We’ve seen a number of goals waved off this post-season on terms of goaltender interference...

New York or bust

For the third straight game in these playoffs, LA won an overtime game without holding any lead. It was the second consecutive win in extra frames in the cup final as well.

Just over 6 minutes later Marion Gaborik notched...

LA Kings outlast Rangers 5-4 in double OT

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- If the Los Angeles Kings ever looked down from the tightrope they're walking in the NHL playoffs, they would surely fall. Three straight games with multigoal deficits, including a 4-2 hole late in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals. Three straight overtime contests, the result hanging on every shift. Willie Mitchell realizes the comeback Kings are on a perilous...

Dustin Brown, Los Angeles Kings work overtime (again) to defeat New York Rangers

It’s not an ideal way to play hockey. It’s usually not smart. It’s usually not productive. It’s usually not successful. Somehow, some way, the Kings have made it work. Now, they’re only two victories away from hoisting Lord Stanley’s cherished 35-pound silver trophy after captain Dustin Brown scored to give them a 5-4 double-overtime win Saturday over the New York Rangers...

Referees Crease: Lundqvist and goalie interference in the Stanley Cup Final

I’m a referee, which means you probably hate me. But it also means I know what the right or wrong call is. Whenever there is a controversial call, I will weigh in with impunity. At 1:58 of the 3rd period, Matt Greene took a shot from the point that found its way into the net as Dwight King tipped it and fell on top of Henrik Lundqvist. Referee Dan O’Halloran immediately signaled...

The Puck Was Past Lundqvist?!?!?!

It’s difficult for me to even write a post about the play as I’m still sick to my stomach over it. But what makes the non-call on the obvious Dwight King interference on Henrik Lundqvist even harder to digest was the referee’s explanation as to why the goal was able to stand. Here’s Henrik Lundqvist on what he was told… “I’m extremely disappointing on the call or non...

Stanley Cup Finals Game 2

Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals had the same start like game one.   The Rangers took it to the Kings and got the first goal when Ryan McDonagh fired the puck by Jonathan Quick to give them a 1-0 lead.  The goal was set up by a hit by Dominic Moore.    McDonagh took a bad penalty late in the 1st period.  However, the Rangers killed the it and continued their strong penalty...

The 3rd Los Angeles Goal Was The Killer

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, Lundqvist, Marty St. Louis, coach Alain Vigneault said basically the same things: That third goal. That third goal killed the Rangers, and if it didn’t injure their opportunity to tie the series after two games, it played a mitigating factor. The Rangers led 2-0 after the first period, 4-2 after two periods, seemed on their way to...
