Once again, three periods were not enough to separate the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings.
Just like in Game 1, the Kings found the winner in overtime. Los Angeles holds a 2-0 series lead in the 2012 Stanley Cup Final thanks to a goal by Jeff Carter, capping a frenetic fourth period. This is the Kings’ 10th straight road win in the postseason.
Entering the game with a 1-0 series lead after Anze Kopitar scored the OT winner in Game 1, the Kings went out in front in Game 2 in the first period when Drew Doughty finished a captivating slalom run, nearly skating the length of the ice, with a shot past Martin Brodeur.
