The Stanley Cup Final returns to Hollywood tonight as the Los Angeles Kings host the New York Rangers in Game 2.

Listen to the Rangers vs. Kings live on TSN Radio starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. You can also stream the post-game press conferences live on TSN.ca after the game.

The Kings look to take a 2-0 series advantage to New York, having won seven of their last 10 games on the road.

Game 1 was decided by Justin Williams' overtime winner, the 32-year-old once again coming up clutch. Williams has notched 20 points in playoff 22 games, including two goals and three assists in three Game 7 victories.

The winger believes that his team is fortunate to be up in the series.

"Certainly not our best game by any standards especially ours. But we were able to get it done and that's the most important thing," he said following Game 1's 3-2 triumph.

Los Angeles is expected to make at least one line-up change for Game 2, with coach Darryl Sutter saying veteran defenceman Robyn Regehr will probably play.

The Rangers will look to bounce back after losing a Game 1 despite taking an early advantage. The Blueshirts scored twice in 82 seconds in the first period of Wednesday's series opener including a short-handed marker for Carl Hagelin.

Coach Alain Vigneault stressed after Game 1 that it would take a 20-man effort to beat the Kings, not just the star players or special teams.

"One thing is real evident to me, and it should be to our whole group, is we're not going to beat this team if we do not all bring our A game," he said Thursday. "It is that strong of an opponent that we're playing against."
