The Los Angeles Kings are on a crusade to prove a two-goal lead is the worst thing you can have in a hockey game.

The Kings came back from two goals down for the third straight game to beat the New York Rangers in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night. Kings captain Dustin Brown scored the double-overtime winner and the Kings won 5-4.

"I think the way we play, everyone is talking about how we come back," Brown said after the game. "I think it's more how we turn the tide of the game over the course of the game. We're not worried about scoring the game-winning goal. We're worried about just playing our game, grinding away. It starts with one [goal]. That's what our mentality is. Whether we're down two, up two, the situation doesn't change for us. Where we have faltered is at the start of games -- the last three games, really."

Game 3 is Monday.

Apparently it's pretty easy to make the dean's list at the University of North Carolina - granted you're a basketball star.

Former North Carolina Tar Heel Rashad McCants told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that he made the dean's list despite not attending his four classes.

"I thought it was a part of the college experience, just like watching it on a movie from 'He Got Game' or 'Blue Chips,'" McCants told ESPN.

The NCAA recently sanctioned UNC's football program after reports of widespread academic fraud at the university.

The Eva Green movie poster for the upcoming comic book flick "Sin City 2" was really living up to its name.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the poster was deemed too racy by the Motion Picture Association of America and the studio is reworking it to show a little less of Green and leave a little more to the audience's imagination.

“She’s a femme fatale,” Green told EW about the character.
