Video: Stralman clears sure goal away just in time

Jun 11, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

The New York Rangers have been exasperated about their lack of luck against the Los Angeles Kings in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final. Maybe those bounces are just coming late?

After falling behind 1-0, the Kings looked primed to erase a deficit with dizzying speed once again. It looked like Jeff Carter would score a Kings power-play tally, yet Anton Stralman managed to clear the puck away just before it completely crossed the goal line:

You can’t get closer than that, can you?

    Luck happens, but they earned that by working hard and not giving up on the play. Credit to Stralman for seeing the puck and making the play. These Kings aren’t a team that goes away when things don’t go their way, though, and there are 40 minutes left. Go Kings Go!

    Twice now the puck’s been laying on the Rangers’ goal line waiting to be poked in. NY has certainly gotten some timely luck in this game. Should be 2-2 or 3-2 Kings.
