The 2014 Stanley Cup live stream and TV coverage continues tonight from the Staples Center when the LA Kings and New York Rangers get ready to battle it out in Game 2 of their best-of-seven series. Game 1 looked like it would be dominated by the Rangers as they quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but the Kings didn't disappoint the home town folks in the end. It is still early in this series, but Game 2's NHL live streaming action could shape how this series plays out.
According to a Sportsline report on June 7, Justin Williams scored the winning goal in overtime giving the Kings the win and a 1-0 series lead. Williams scored 4:36 into overtime after a turnover by Dan Girardi and depending on which team you are rooting for, it was either a great comeback for the Kings or a terrible blown opportunity for New York.
The Kings seem to have a knack for playing overtime games - and winning them. It's not the best route to take, but as long as the results are wins, LA doesn't mind.
"It certainly helps that we've done it time and time again," said Williams, the repeat postseason hero dubbed Mr. Game 7 for his knack for series-deciding goals. "It's a great result of the hockey game for us, definitely, but we have a lot of things to clean up. Certainly not our best game by any standards, especially ours, but we were able to get it done. That's the most important thing."
The Rangers know if they can win tonight, earning a split isn't all that bad. New York has been down in a series before, the worst being down a 3-1 series deficit to the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Semifinals before winning 3 straight to advance. The Rangers know this series is far from over, but winning Game 2 is almost a must.
Las Vegas odds makers have the Kings as the favorite in tonight's Game 2 match-up at -155 with the over/under number set at 5. Fans can catch all the live action on NBC nationally and streaming live online through your PC, smart phones and tablets through NBC Sports Extra. The puck is scheduled to drop at 8 p.m. ET. Will the Rangers bounce back after a tough loss, or will the Kings take a 2-0 lead with them to Madison Square Garden for Game 3?
