That is a huge goal for the Phoenix Coyotes. They’ve grabbed the lead for the first time in the series thanks to Daymond Langkow’s first goal of the postseason at the 1:03 mark of the second period. It’s 1-0 Phoenix.
Remember how we were talking about the ease in which the teams were moving through the neutral zone? It’s continued into the second period, and it was evident on the goal.
Keith Yandle threaded a pass through a gap in the Kings defense, feeding Langkow right at the opposite blue line, where he was able to dash through Los Angeles’ last line of defense and in on goal all alone. The 23-foot wrister found a hole in Jonathan Quick and gave the Coyotes their first lead of the series.
