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.
