VIDEO: Dustin Brown Gives Kings 3-2 Lead In Third Period

It's certainly fitting that Dustin Brown has broken the 2-2 tie between the Kings and Coyotes in the third period. The Los Angeles captain has played unbelievable hockey all evening long in Game 1, and it was his laser beam of a wrist shot from 33 feet out that beat Mike Smith and gave the Kings their third lead of the hockey game, 3-2.


It was a pretty outlet pass from Slava Voynov that beat two back-checking Coyotes to find Brown near center ice. From there, it wasn't all that hard for Brown, who simply released a gorgeous shot before Shane Doan could catch up to him.

The Kings haven't sat back since the goal, going in hard on the forecheck and pushing multiple bodies deep into the offensive end of the ice. It's admirable strategy, for sure, but you never know when that sort of play could come back to bite you in a one-goal game.
