KIngs advance to Stanley Cup Finals

Posted:

The Los Angeles Kings are heading to the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1993.

Dustin Penner scored at 17:42 of overtime to give the Los Angeles Kings a 4-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes and the Western Conference title. The Kings dominated most of the extra session, outshooting the Coyotes 12-6 despite killing off the lone penalty of OT.

Phoenix led 2-1 midway through the second period before Drew Doughty and Mike Richards scored 2:37 apart to give L.A, its first lead. But the Coyotes knotted the score on Keith Yandle's first of the postseason before playing through a scoreless third period.

Penner's goal extended the Kings' playoff road winning streak to a league-record 10 in a row dating to last season, topping the old mark set by the New York Islanders in 1982 and `83. Los Angeles is the first team to reach the Cup finals with a perfect road record.

The Kings are the second team under the current playoff format to knock off the first, second and third seeds in the opening three rounds. The other team was the 2004 Calgary Flames, who were also coached by Darryl Sutter.

Jonathan Quick stopped 38 shots for the Kings, who will be on the road for the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals in New York or New Jersey.
