For the fourth time in their last five games, the LA Kings fell in a 2-0 hole in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday against the Rangers and again they made it a game.

Early in the second period a Brad Richards turnover led to a mad defensive scramble in the Rangers zone. Justin Williams took a pass toward the corner boards, drawing the attention of Henrik Lundqvist. That left him out of position and sprawled on the ice when the puck went back to LA's Jarret Stoll in the crease.

Seeing the net was empty, Kevin Klein did the job of any good defenseman and went down on one knee in net to try and block a shot. Stoll got off a bit of a change-up, barely hitting the puck and that allowed Lundqvist to just slightly deflect the puck, going the opposite way of Klein in the net.

It was a strange goal but it's been a strange postseason for the Kings. Teams aren't supposed to have this kind of success when they continually fall behind 2-0.
