Video: Kings’ Lewis scores soft goal on Ducks’ goalie Gibson

May 14, 2014, 11:46 PM EDT

For the first time since he entered into this series, John Gibson looked to have a dent in his armor.

The 20-year-old Anaheim Ducks’ goalie allowed a soft goal off the stick of Trevor Lewis late in the second period to give the L.A. Kings a 2-0 lead in Game 6 of that Western Conference second-round series.

Gibson’s frustration was evident just as the puck got by him and over the goal line. Lewis let go a wrist shot from the top of the faceoff circle that appeared to beat Gibson through the legs.

Gibson got the surprise start in Game 4 of this series, and has collected wins in each of the last two games to put the Ducks on the brink of making it to the Western Conference Final.

Gibson did make up for it, with a beautiful desperation glove save off Kings’ defenseman Drew Doughty right after the Ducks scored to make it a one-goal game.

    Fellow historians will recall this famous quote from the ‘excellent’ movie Gettysburg (1993) when Lee responded to Longstreet about the ‘intel’ he had just provided regarding the position of the Federal Army on the ‘eve of action’ back in July 1863.
    So tonight fellow King’s fans here in 2014, I pose a similar retort to you … “we carry the day on the strength of a ‘weak’ wrist shot from 60 feet?” …

    Onward and forward friends, however I fear this may ‘not’ be enough ? … 😦

    In addition to watching the Gibson save on Doughty’s shot last night, and watching the video here a couple of times, I’m still not convinced that shot would have gone into the net.

    Not to take away from Gibson’s performance and that great glove catch; but, even the announcers last night questioned if the puck would have gone in.

    Doesn’t matter.

    Wow, PHT staff, I think you forgot to post the PK Subban Tunnel interview on this non related thread here. You’re slipping. What’s up with that…
