The Los Angeles Kings are still perfect on the road.
Kopitar's shot will certainly be water-cooler fodder leading up to Game 2, as he successfully faked a backhand shot to expose Martin Brodeur and get an easy forehand shot to seal victory.
A lesson in how to deke out a hall of fame goalie.
While the Kings struck first in the game, the Devils were clearly the better team in the game's third period.
Taking a 1-1 tie into the game's final 20 minutes following an Anton Volchenkov goal, New Jersey applied more pressure and seemed to be building toward a late game-winner.
Overall, however, the Kings outshot the Devils 25-18.
The Kings have now won all nine of their road games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Game 2 will be on Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET.
