If Game 4 clinches it for the Los Angeles Kings, someone on the roster is going to join elite company: The player who scores the game-winning goal in a Stanley Cup-clinching game.
Sometimes it's a dramatic goal, like Brett Hull for the Dallas Stars in 1999 or Jason Arnott for the New Jersey Devils in 2000. Sometimes it's a random goal, like Martin Lapointe scoring in the second period to make it 2-0 in 1998. Sometimes it's Chris Phillips scoring into his own net in 2007. Here is every Stanley Cup Final series-winning goal since 1990, via 'BiggestManAlivex2' on YouTube from last summer:
Four Stanley Cups have been won in overtime, most recently by Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks. Each one was on the road.
Who will be the Mark Messier, Ron Francis, Mike Rupp or Frantisek Kaberle of the 2012 Stanley Cup Final?
