Video: Justin Williams does it again, opens scoring for Kings in Game 7

May 16, 2014, 9:41 PM EDT

It seems all Justin Williams does in Game 7s is score, or contribute on the score sheet.

The veteran 32-year-old forward opened the scoring for the L.A. Kings less than five minutes into the first period in Friday’s Game 7 against the Anaheim Ducks. He scooped a loose puck on a scramble in behind 20-year-old goalie John Gibson.

It certainly seems like he enjoys these decisive games. He’s been in a few of them over the course of his career. In five Game 7s during his playoff career, he’s scored five goals and 10 points, and has yet to lose in this type of situation.

Jeff Carter gave the Kings a 2-0 lead just four minutes and 18 seconds later, as he deked to the backhand and beat Gibson on a breakaway chance.

      Williams is awesome, I remember watchin him in his first nhl game as a flyer an how promising he looked. Sucks the flyers traded him an Richards, two of some of my favorite flyers. I enjoy seeing the former flyers killing it for the kings right now. Hopefully the kings will beat the hawks an win the cup again

    “Carts” Fanbases don’t call the players by their nicknames…how lame…give me a break…can’t wait for that fake injury karma in Columbus to catch up with this jerk.

      You obviously don’t know carter. I sit next to the flyers bench an tunnel an he was one of the nicest guys on the the team smackin high fives with the fans an acknowledging them Everytime he came through that tunnel when most players don’t. Most us flyers fans were glad when he left cause of him never comin up big when he needed to but I’d say no one thinks he deserved to get dumped in crappy Columbus at the time after signing a 10 year deal. He never faked that, he’s a stand up dude.
