Video: King helps Kings get back in Game 5

Jun 8, 2013, 10:19 PM EDT

The Los Angeles Kings entered the second period facing an imposing – but not impenetrable – margin as the Chicago Blackhawks built a 2-0 lead.

As of this writing, Anze Kopitar managed to make it 2-2 in the third period, but the Kings wouldn’t have gotten this far without a pivotal second period. First things first, Dwight King resurrected his Chris Kontos impression to make it 2-1 via a shorthanded tally.

Jonathan Quick experienced some rocky moments in the first period, but he recovered during the intermission and ended up making big saves, including a beauty against Marian Hossa.

Take a look at their turnaround in the video below:

Here’s the 2-2 goal by Kopitar:

      Reigning bandwagoners. Waiting until their team’s back in it to show up, eh?

        No. Just recognizing effort. My team is waiting to see who they play next.

        Ah, rooting for the easier opponent! I like your style! Gave the kings a little too much credit though, had to give you a hard time. Go B’s 😉
