The Los Angeles Kings couldn't quite finish off the Phoenix Coyotes at home on Sunday, but look to do so in Game 5 of the NHL Western Conference Finals in Phoenix, in a way putting the Kings back at an advantage. The Kings have yet to lose on the road this postseason, and after one period in Game 5 the game is tied at 1-1, thanks to Anze Kopitar and his shorthanded goal.
The Kings lead the best-of-seven series, three games to one.
Taylor Pratt scored first for Phoenix at 4:20 of the first period, his fourth goal of the postseason. Then, seven minutes later Drew Doughty missed a shot but Kopitar was there to tip it in, for his sixth goal of the playoffs:
Derek Morris of the Coyotes was called for holding with four seconds remaining in the first period, so the Kings will be on the power play for the first 1:56 of the second period.
