VIDEO: Dwight King Gives Los Angeles 2-1 Lead

Talk about textbook execution on this 2-on-1 by Mike Richards and Dwight King. Michal Roszival did all he could do on the defensive side of the puck, but Richards put the puck in a perfect spot on goaltender Mike Smith, and even with the best rebound control in the world, Smith had no choice but to put the puck right in a spot where King could deposit it into the back of the net with ease.

The 2-on-1 was cause by the pinching of the Coyotes defense. Both David Schlemko -- only in the lineup because of the injury to veteran defenseman Adrian Aucoin -- and Gilbert Brule got a little too aggressive going after the puck at the blue line, and when Richards knocked it past the defense, it was an easy go for the Kings in the other direction.
