The Kings have completely controlled the third period and it seems like they’ll tie this thing at any point. But somehow, the Devils are holding them off with help from a) Martin Brodeur and b) his goal posts.
Now, Dustin Brown’s committed a cardinal sin: A penalty taken 200 feet away from his own net. The Kings had control of the puck deep in behind Martin Brodeur, yet Brown took a silly, needless holding the stick penalty. Penalties kill momentum, even when the opposition has an awful power play unit. More importantly, time ticks off the clock for L.A.
