Dwight King Goal Caps Off Great Kings Shift, Gives Los Angeles 2-1 Lead

Holy hell, Dwight King.

Well, okay. That’s not totally fair. King doesn’t deserve all the credit for the Los Angeles Kings’ second goal in Game 3, which has put them up 2-1 over the Coyotes in the third period. First, Jarret Stoll did a great job to intercept a clearing attempt by Phoenix, keeping a shift going for LA. Then, Trevor Lewis — complete with his broken face and everything — fell on the puck in the corner and from his knees was able to win the puck battle and dish it back to King.

That’s where King took over. He danced his way to the front of the net and ripped a snipe of a shot through Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith. It was a gorgeous shot and a great all around effort by Los Angeles. The trio responsible for the goal has been great for the Kings all night long, and now they’ve put their team on a path towards a 3-0 series lead.
