Kings Clip Rangers For 1-0 Lead In Stanley Cup Final

The Los Angeles Kings are three wins away from winning the Stanley Cup. Justin Williams scored the game-winning goal 4:36 in overtime as the Kings clipped the New York Rangers 3-2 in Game One of the Stanley Cup Final at Staples Center. Kyle Clifford and Drew Doughty also lit the lamp for the Kings, who are in search of their second Cup in three years. Jonathan Quick made 25 saves in the victory. Benoit Pouliot and Carl Hagelin scored 1:42 apart in the first period for New York, which is seeking its fifth Cup in club history but first since 1994. Henrik Lundqvist allowed all three goals on 43 shots in the setback. Game Two of the best-of-seven series is Saturday in LA.
