Dwight King sealed the Los Angeles Kings' Game 1 win with his second goal of the game, an empty-netter with 48 seconds left on the clock. Just a simple shot from center ice that found its way to the back of the net. No goalie in there, though. King's not Derek Morris or anything.
The Coyotes really put together a valiant effort. The Kings took 90 attempts (!) at the Coyotes net as compared to 56 attempts at the Los Angeles net by Phoenix, but somehow they were able to lay down in front of many of them. Mike Smith was solid yet again, but ultimately, you can't allow 48 shots to hit your goaltender and expect to win.
Phoenix put on a charge late before pulling Smith from his crease, but that's when Jonathan Quick shined just a little brighter than his counterpart. He may have made a mistake on the Morris goal, and he may have been partially at fault for Mikkel Boedker's goal, but Quick was great when it mattered most late in the game.
