Typical Los Angeles Kings.
God forbid they vanquish their opponent in regulation or — the horror! — control the lead. Instead, after L.A.'s Justin Williams put his team up 1-0 six minutes into Friday night's Game 5, the New York Rangers scored the next two goals. Lucky for the Kings, Marian Gaborik (a former Ranger) took advantage of a power play and got his team to the first overtime. That one ended still tied at 2-2, but Alec Martinez finally found a crack in Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist's impressive defense (48 saves) at 14:43 in double OT, giving the Kings their second Cup in three seasons.
Watch the play below (the action lasts through the first 26 seconds, but the celebrations — not to mention shots of some pretty dejected Rangers — lasts another two minutes).
All that's left now is for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to make good on his bet with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and sing "I Love L.A." Can't wait for that!
