Coyotes Vs. Kings, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 1: Los Angeles Wins 4-2

The Los Angeles Kings are keeping the run going in the Western Conference Finals, as they took Game 1 in Phoenix from the Coyotes.

The Kings beat third-seeded Phoenix thanks to a huge Dustin Brown goal to put them up 3-2 2:19 into the third period.


They then got a clinching goal on an empty netter in the final seconds.


Los Angeles dominated shots on goal, getting 47 for the Kings as opposed to 27 for the Coyotes. The Kings generally controlled the possession and the offensive opportunities. King had an earlier goal, and Anze Kopitar had the first goal of the game for L.A.
