(AP) – For a club that barely made the playoffs this spring, the Kings are on a near-unprecedented rampage through the Western Conference’s top seeds. For a franchise that has never raised the Stanley Cup, these Kings appear quite ready to play for that singular privilege.
Anze Kopitar scored the tying breakaway goal, Dwight King added the winner early in the third period, and the Kings rolled to the brink of their first Stanley Cup final in 19 years with a 2-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes in Game 3 of the conference finals on Thursday night.
Los Angeles is up 3-0 in the series and could wrap up the franchise’s second trip to the Cup final in Game 4 on Sunday.
Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer for the Kings, Bob Miller, chatted with KFWB’s Penny Griego and Phil Hulett about the Kings.
