Dwight King scores while falling on top of Henrik Lundqvist, starts Kings comeback

It seems that goalie interference does not exist in the Stanley Cup Final. That worked out to the Los Angeles Kings' advantage on Saturday.

After calling a penalty nearly every time a skater so much as breathed on a goaltender in the first three rounds of the playoffs, it seems that NHL officials have decided to throw all of that out the window in the Stanley Cup Final.

With the Kings trailing by two goals midway through the third period, Dwight King managed to get them back to within one when he drove to the front of the net and deflected a Matt Greene point shot past Henrik Lundqvist.

And as King was doing all of that, he was pretty much falling on top of Lundqvist.

Ryan McDonagh wasn't exactly helping things for Lundqvist, but King still has to make an effort to get out of the way. In the eyes of the officials, he did. Needless to say, this did not please Lundqvist.

It proved to be a pretty big moment in the game -- and perhaps even a game-changing moment -- as Marian Gaborik scored just a few minutes later to tie the game, 4-4.
