Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Henrik Lundqvist denied 13 shots, Jonathan Quick made 10 saves, and both teams found iron in the first overtime.

The New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings are heading to a second extra session in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Marian Gaborik evened the score at 2-2 with a power-play tally 7:56 into the third and neither team found the go-ahead goal as the Kings and Rangers headed to overtime for the third time this series.

After outshooting the Rangers 15-3 in the third, the Kings carried their strong play into overtime, but Lundqvist fought through an early flurry to keep the game tied.

However, the tide turned after Los Angeles defenseman Slava Voynov was sent off for hooking at 3:54.

Ryan McDonagh nearly ended the contest less a minute into the man-advantage when his blast from the left circle sailed under Quick's glove, but the puck hit the far-side post and play continued.

The Kings came up with their best chance of the extra session with nearly 7 1/2 minutes left when Tyler Toffoli came up with the puck deep in the New York zone and wheeled into the right circle.

Toffoli let fly with a wicked wrister, but the puck clanked off the crossbar and ricocheted out to safety.

The final scoring chance of the first overtime came in the final minute of the stanza when Chris Kreider blocked a shot and skated down the left side all alone. Kreider tried to beat Quick short-side from the left circle, but Quick stuck his arm out to turn the try away.

Lundqvist has stopped 40 shots through 80 minutes, while Quick has posted 23 saves for the Kings, who are one win away from their second championship in three years.

Early on, Justin Williams gave the Kings a 1-0 lead just over six minutes in with his nine goal of the postseason, but the Rangers rallied for a pair of special-teams tallies in the second to grab the lead.

After Dwight King was sent off high sticking 14:07 into the second period, McDonagh's feed from the right circle found Kreider on the low right side for a redirect to tie the game 1-1.

New York center Dominic Moore was whistled for hooking with 2:23 left in the period to give Los Angeles a late power play, but a hustle play from winger Carl Hagelin in the neutral zone helped the Rangers take the lead.

Hagelin knocked Voynov off the puck along the right boards near the red line and touched the disc ahead to Brian Boyle.

Boyle then danced around Doughty in the slot and skated into the left circle before rifling a wicked wrister high over the glove of Quick with just 29.6 seconds on the clock.
