Quite a thriller in the swamp last night, no?
While the first half of regulation felt like two teams merely feeling each other out, the pace of the contest in the latter half did not disappoint.
And what a finish in overtime, with Anze Kopitar's breakaway goal giving the Los Angeles Kings a 2-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.
With the win, the Kings are now 9-0 on the road in these playoffs.
