Kings' power play comes through with winner
The Kings' stagnant power play finally came to live in overtime, giving the Kings a 3-2 victory when jack Johnson scored on a rebound with 52 seconds left in OT.
 
Anze Kopitar started the play with a shot on Henrik Lundqvist that resulted in a rebound. Mike Richards was alongside the crease and he shoveled it on Lundqvist for a second save, but Jack Johnson, pinching from the point, made no mistake as he roofed the rebound over Lundqvist, who was brilliant throughout.

The Los Angeles' power play had been 0-for-4 before that goal.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
