It took two overtimes, but we finally have a winner in Game Two of the Stanley Cup Finals. Just like Game One, the match-up needed bonus hockey to settle on a victor. The Los Angeles Kings came out with the 'W' after a 5-4 nailbiter to top the New York Rangers who suddenly find themselves in a 2-0 hole.
Tonight, down 4-2 entering the third period, the Kings gave the fans almost five hours game time by scoring twice (once on a controversial no-goalie interference call). When it was all said and done tonight's hero (meaning the man who put in the game winning goal) was Dustin Brown, the Kings veteran who signed a contract extension this past summer.
The loss has got to be especially disheartening to both the Rangers and their fans as the Kings haven't led at any point in regulation yet still hold the 2-0 advantage. With the series now heading 3,000 miles east to the Big Apple, the Rangers will have to defend their home ice or start their off-season thinking about "what ifs" instead of planning for their day with the Cup.
