Dwight King is now up to two goals in these Stanley Cup playoffs. His second came Friday night, as he opened the scoring for his L.A. Kings in the first period of Game 6 against the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Kings can advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the second time in three years with a win tonight. They took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission. In these playoffs, L.A. is 6-1 when leading after 20 minutes.
Now, the Blackhawks, facing elimination, need this game. But defenseman Brent Seabrook has fallen under criticism for how he played the puck leading to L.A.’s goal. King eventually found himself all alone in front of the Chicago net, with only goalie Corey Crawford to beat.
