Kings Drop Rangers In Two OT's

Dustin Brown re-directed a shot from the point from Willie Mitchell past Henrik Lundqvist midway through double-overtime to send the Kings to a 5-4 win over the Rangers in Game Two of the Stanley Cup Final from the STAPLES Center. Mitchell also scored in regulation as did Jarret Stoll. Dwight King and Marian Gaborik both lit the lamp in the third period to tie the contest for Los Angeles, which holds a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Jonathan Quick made 34 saves in the win. Goals from Ryan McDonagh and Mats Zuccarello gave New York a lead in the first period. Martin St. Louis and Derick Brassard also scored for the Rangers, who have either led or been tied during every regulation minute of the series. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 39 shots for New York, which hosts Game Three at Madison Square Garden on Monday.
