                Final Score: Los Angeles 3, NY Rangers 2 (2-OT)
 
 Los  Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - For the second time in three years, the
 Los  Angeles  Kings are Stanley Cup  champions. Alec Martinez scored with 5:17
 left  in the  second overtime to lift the  Kings to a 3-2 victory over the New
 York  Rangers in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Friday at Staples Center.
 With  just  over five minutes left  in the second extra session, Tyler Toffoli
 fired a shot from atop the right circle that Henrik Lundqvist padded away, but
 the  rebound  ricocheted to the  low left side,  where Martinez was waiting to
 send  it  home, ending the longest  game in Kings history. Marian Gaborik tied
 the  game with a power-play goal 7:56 into the third, while Conn Smythe Trophy
 winner  Justin  Williams opened  the scoring  in the first  for the Kings, who
 bested  the  New Jersey Devils  in six games during  the 2012 Finals for their
 first title in their 45-year history.
