(Newser) – No miracle comeback for the Rangers: Alec Martinez scored 14:43 into the second overtime as the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three years with a 3-2 victory over New York. Marian Gaborik scored a tying power-play goal with 12:04 left in regulation for the resilient Kings, who rallied from yet another deficit before finishing off the Rangers in the longest game in franchise history.

Jonathan Quick made 28 saves and Justin Williams scored an early goal as Los Angeles added a second title to its 2012 championship, the first in the franchise's 47-year history. After innumerable late chances, Martinez popped home a rebound of Tyler Toffoli's shot. Martinez also scored the overtime winner to beat Chicago in the Western Conference finals.
