Well, that was sudden.
Less than a full second remained on the game clock when the Kings lined up for an offensive zone faceoff in overtime against the Bruins.
In the end, that didn’t matter, though. With Jonathan Quick on the bench for the extra attacker during the three-on-three session, Anze Kopitar won a clean draw back to Tyler Toffoli, who wasted no time ripping his shot by Tuukka Rask, giving the Kings an incredible buzzer-beater overtime victory.
It was a faceoff executed to perfection, without a single flaw, as the Kings improved their record to 9-1-1 atop the Pacific Division.
