Video: Third period ends with a wild flurry

Jun 4, 2014, 11:04 PM EDT

After some hectic action in the first 20 minutes and a contentious middle frame, the Los Angeles Kings absolutely dominated the New York Rangers in the third period to the tune of a 20-3 shot advantage. Even so, Game 1 went into overtime tied 2-2.

That doesn’t mean the contest wasn’t close to ending. The wildest stretch actually came in the waning moments of the third, as Carl Hagelin almost scored on a breakaway and then nearly kicked in a jaw-dropping Jeff Carter wraparound chance:

Stay tuned for what could be an exciting overtime period (or exciting overtime periods).

    Justin “Clutch” Williams moved his heroics from game sevens to game one overtime. Pretty sweet shot off the turnover to beat Lundqvist. Neither team seemed able to keep the puck on their sticks. Is the ice crappy in Staples?

    Both teams have pretty good penalty kills, the Rangers holding the Kings shotless on four chances. The Kings took the Rangers’ best shot early on (and went down 2-0) and got stronger and more dominant as the game wore on. Major shot difference in the third period and overtime, only five for the Rangers.

      oh yea no doubt man, this game is a HELLAlot closer than even the score boards. it was just chance after chance; with henrik lundqvist easily being rangers’s best player.

      well by tmrw game 1 doesn’t matter anymore, off to game 2…and the rangers still have their goaltender playing 99.99% perfect. it seriously does take a mistake by the rangers team or a sniper shot to go past lundqvist. rangers can still easily steal a game.
