NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Los Angeles Kings scored in the last second of play to lead the New York Rangers 1-0 after the first period in Game Three of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday.
Jeff Carter rifled a wrist shot past New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist just before the period ended to give the visitors the lead at Madison Square Garden.
Neither team was able create many clear scoring chances in a frantic opening period although the Rangers almost scored through right wing Mats Zuccarello only to see his shot saved by Los Angeles goalie Jonathan Quick.
The Kings lead the series 2-0 after winning the first two games in California, both in overtime.
