Video: Kings’ Penner scores with 0.2 seconds remaining in second period

May 11, 2013, 1:04 AM EDT

Dustin Penner had two goals in 33 games for the L.A. Kings during the regular season. He now has two goals in these playoffs.

What is it about this time of year that finally wakes him from his slumber?

His second goal of the series against the St. Louis Blues proved to be the winner in Game 6, which the Kings won by a final score of 2-1 to advance to the second round of the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs.

As critical a goal as this was for L.A., it was deflating for the Blues. Penner scored on a slap shot that deflected off the defenseman Roman Polak‘s stick and past Brian Elliott with 0.2 seconds remaining in the second period.

And here is the post-game media scrum in which Penner discusses the goal.

    Ol’ “Pancake” Penner is nothing if not timely. Like that guy you haven’t heard from in a coon’s age showing up unannounced to help you move. A key component of the Kings’ success these past couple of years have been the hard-hitting, lock-down defensemen who know just when to take advantage of an opportunity to make a little offensive noise. They stay at home to take care of business and rarely jump into the offensive zone, but when they do they make it count.
