New York looked primed to pull the upset over the Kings in game 1 after taking a 2-to-1 lead after the 1st period but a 2nd period goal by Los Angeles’ Drew Doughty evened things up. The 3rd period saw both teams go scoreless before Justin Williams put in a goal at 4:36 over the 1st overtime period to get the Staples Center crowd on their feet.

Los Angeles actually has more road wins than wins at home but their 29-17-3-2 mark at Staples Center this season is nothing to scoff at. New York has 5 more road wins than home wins this season and is 31-18-2-1 when traveling which makes them one of the toughest teams to host in all of hockey.
