This postseason has been nothing if not crazy and exciting. The second period of Game 2 in the Stanley Cup Final was a microcosm, especially when LA and New York each scored with 11 seconds of one another.

With the Rangers ahead 3-1, the Kings got one goal back on the board when Willie Mitchell scored from the blue line just as LA's power play was coming to a close. It seemed like the Kings were back in it.

Then right after the faceoff, the Rangers got the puck in deep and Jonathan Quick came out of his net to set it up for Mitchell behind his net. Only he didn't set it up, instead the puck bounced (a common theme on Saturday night) over the stick of Mitchell and the forechecking Mats Zuccarello was there to pick it up and dish it to Derick Brassard crashing the net. Quick wasn't back in position yet and the Rangers re-established their two-goal lead.

According to NBC's Mike Emrick, the two goals 11 seconds apart were the fasted back-to-back goals in 67 years in a Stanley Cup Final game because this series has to live up to this postseason.
