Kevin Porter assisted. Panger must be doing flips
Tony or mysterman can one of you edit the title and make this the GDT?
My Bad...should have done that. I cant change it though so Tony will have to do it.
Los Angeles would remain undisciplined. Wayne Simmonds took an albowing penalty with 1:33 remaining in the period. The Coyotes created one shot before the final horn sounded. Phoenix will start the second period with the man advantage.
The Coyotes couldnt muster anymore shots on the power play before elapsing. The Kings continued to play physical. Simmonds completed a big body check on Porter. The Michigan grad would get his revenge. Porter nailed Simmonds along the back boards, but Simmonds landed a rabbit punch after to earn a two-minute minor for roughing.
The Coyotes would take the next penalty when Tyler Johnson received a holding call. The Kings almost cut the lead when Oscar Moller rang on off the post, but to no avail. The Kings would hit the post again when Josh Kidd ringed the outside of the post. The Kings had no official shots on the power play, but several strong chances.
Richard Clune and Jonas Ahnelov would drop the gloves at 7:55. Both players landed a couple shots, but it ended up being a wrestling match with Ahnelov taking down the smaller Clune.
Phoenix would get another opportunity on a developing three-on-two. Turris dropped it off to Jared Stall, who would put in on net. The rebound jumped over a streaking Turris, who had an empty net available.
