Tyler Toffoli opens Game 5 scoring with nifty goal

Harry How

The Kings rookie is riding to the rescue in this series.

Through the first two games of the series against San Jose, the Los Angeles Kings looked like they had forgotten how to score. Now they've regained their offensive mojo, thanks in part to one of their rookie forwards.

Tyler Toffoli made quite the impact with the Kings on the ropes in Game 4, registering a goal and an assist in a 6-3 win. Then he opened the scoring in Game 5 with a dandy of a goal in the first period, deking around James Sheppard before sniping the puck past Antti Niemi.

For a team that usually struggles to find consistent scoring, the Kings sure have a bright talent in Toffoli.
