After three overtime periods in the first two games, the Kings had a dominating 3-0 performance in New York in Game 3, only to fall inches short of a possible sweep with a 2-1 loss.

Now back in Los Angeles for Game 5, the Rangers carried a 2-1 lead into the 3rd period, but were hit with a controversial tripping penalty that led to the game-tying power play goal.

In the second overtime, it was Alec Martinez with the trophy-clinching goal for the Kings.

Justin Williams, the leading scorer of the Stanley Cup final, was named the Conn Smythe winner as the MVP of the playoffs.
