Rangers Lead Kings 2-1 After Second Period in Stanley Cup Game 5

June 13 (Bloomberg) -- Chris Kreider and Brian Boyle scored in a four-minute span late in the second period to give the Rangers a 2-1 lead against the host Los Angeles Kings as New York tried to stay alive in the Stanley Cup finals.

Kreider scored on a power play with 4 1/2 minutes remaining in the period to tie the game 1-1, and Boyle added a shorthanded goal with 30 seconds left before the break.

The Kings lead three games to one in the best-of-seven National Hockey League championship series and need one more win to capture the title.

Justin Williams slid a rebound through a pile of players and between the skates of New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist for the Kings’ goal six minutes into the game.

The Kings, who didn’t hold a lead in the series until the first period of Game 3, are trying to become the first team to win two Stanley Cup titles in a three-year span since the Detroit Red Wings repeated as champions in 1997 and 1998.
