The Los Angeles Kings have won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three years with a double overtime win over the New York Rangers.
With both teams close to exhaustion the Kings sealed a 4-1 series victory by winning game five 3-2.
The winning goal came courtesy of defenseman Alec Martinez almost 15 minutes into the second period of overtime.
The Kings struck first in the opening period through Justin Williams, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player in the playoffs, but the Rangers led 2-1 after the middle frame when Chris Kreider and Brian Boyle scored in a four-minute span.
Marian Gaborik, who finished as the leading scorer in the playoffs with 14 goals, tied the game in the third before the teams slugged it out in overtime.
New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 48 saves for the Rangers while Jonathan Quick turned away 28 shots for the Kings, who claimed their second title in three years.
While the series scoreline suggested the Kings romped to victory in the final, three of their four wins were decided in overtime.
They overcame incredible odds just to make the final, winning each of their first three playoff rounds in the maximum seven games.
