What a backbreaker. The Kings had a 13-to-four edge in shots and an absolutely dominant edge in possession time, and then Derek Morris scored from center ice at the 13:26 mark of the first period in Game 1. Seriously. If there's one thing that could have possibly gone wrong for Los Angeles with the way they've played this first period, it's this.
Talk about an awful break.
The puck just flew all the way down the ice and utterly fooled Jonathan Quick. It was a heads-up play by Morris to shoot the puck so hard though, for sure. Quick could just never pick up the laser beam.
Bouncy pucks happen, but is it possible that puck doesn't bounce nearly that much if it's not 100-plus degrees outside in Glendale today? Or upon replay, did the puck never even bounce? Your call.
