This marks the first time the first two games of a Cup final have gone to overtime since the 1951 final between the Leafs and Canadiens.
All five games of that series were decided in extra time, the only time that has ever happened in NHL history.
The 1951 final ended with the most famous goal in Leafs' history, Bill Barilko's overtime game winner in game five at 2:53.
That summer, Barilko was killed on a fishing trip when his plane went down in Northern Ontario.
Barilko is immortalized by the Canadian band The Tragically Hip in a haunting song called "50 Mission Cap". Here are the lyrics:
"Bill Barilko disappeared that summer, he was on a fishing trip
The last goal he ever scored won the Leafs the Cup.
They didn't win another until 1962, the year he was discovered
I stole this from a hockey card, I keep tucked up under my fifty mission cap. I worked it in I worked it in to look like that
It's my fifty mission cap and I worked it in, I worked it in, and i worked it in, to look like that and I worked it in, to look like that
Except for maybe a five-minute stretch in the third period that featured some good end-to-end action, this was another pretty vanilla game without a ton of great scoring chances.
The Kings tied an NHL record with their 10th road win and extended a mark they now own with their 10th consecutive road win.
They are 10-0 on the road in the playoffs and actually have won 12 straight road games in the postseason, dating to last year.
If the Kings win the series, Los Angeles will be the 12th city visited by Lord Stanley since a Canadian team last won the Cup in 1993 (Canadiens). Here is the list:
Detroit 4 (1997, 1998, 2002, 2008)
East Rutherland 3 (1995, 2000, 2003)
Denver 2 (1996, 2001)
New York 1 (1994)
Dallas 1 (1999)
Tampa 1 (2004)
Raleigh 1 (2006)
Anaheim 1 (2007)
