The margin between victory and defeat looks like it will be a narrow one in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final.
Though the Los Angeles Kings gave up an early 2-0 lead in Game 1, the hosts were able to make the necessary adjustments to get back in the game and tie it by the midpoint of the second period. After dominating the third, Los Angeles prevailed thanks to Justin Williams' overtime winner off a Dan Girardi giveaway, 4:36 into the extra frame.
The Kings now hold a 1-0 lead in the series, with Game 2 scheduled to go Saturday at 7 p.m. ET at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
With two days off between games, both sides are fine-tuning their approaches in hopes of gaining the upper hand against an unfamiliar opponent.
Here's a look at the keys to victory for both teams in Game 2.
