The battle of New York vs. Los Angeles continues today on NBC, at 7:15 p.m., when the Rangers face the Kings in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Game coverage begins immediately following coverage of the 146th running of the Belmont Stakes, as California Chrome tries to become the first horse to complete the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978.
Emmy Award-winning play-by-play broadcaster Mike "Doc" Emrick, analyst Eddie Olczyk, and Emmy Award-winning "Inside the Glass" analyst Pierre McGuire will have the call of Game 2. Host Liam McHugh and analysts Mike Milbury, Jeremy Roenick and Keith Jones will anchor NBC Sports Group's intermission coverage.
Coverage will also feature a profile on Kings' forward Justin Williams, who scored the game-winning overtime goal in Game 1. The veteran forward scored in all three of the Kings' Game 7 wins this postseason, is 7-0 in his career in Game 7s, and has posted an NHL-record 14 points in those seven games.
