Rangers Lead Kings 2-1 After First Period in Stanley Cup Opener

June 4 (Bloomberg) -- Benoit Pouliot and Carl Hagelin scored goals as the New York Rangers took a 2-1 lead after one period against the Los Angeles Kings in the opening game of the Stanley Cup finals.

Kyle Clifford scored for the Kings during an action-packed yet sloppy first period in which all the goals were scored in the final seven minutes at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Game 2 of the best-of-seven National Hockey League championship series is set for June 7 in Los Angeles. The series then moves to New York’s Madison Square Garden for the following two games.

It is the first time the Rangers and Kings have met in a Stanley Cup finals, and the first championship-round showdown since 1981 between teams from New York and Los Angeles in any major sport. The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees in baseball’s World Series 33 years ago.
