Wings Fall to Kings in Dramatic Fashion

by Staff Writer / Detroit Red Wings

Hey, this is Hollywood, why not give it a dramatic ending? The Wings held an early 1-0 lead, but after giving up a PPG to the Kings, Los Angeles tied it at 1-1. While tied at 1 at the Staples Center, Dustin Penner elbowed Brendan Smith to the head nowhere near the puck, but it appeared to be legal as no penalty was called. Nevertheless, Anze Kopitar scored with under 5 minutes left to put the Kings up 2-1, a lead they held on to until the game's end.
