Yesterday we heard Kopitar's goal was a beauty. Today, thanks to a kind soul, we have footage.
The highlight begins at the 1:00 mark. Kopitar steals the puck and then is off to the races. He blows past everyone, and then, well -- let's just take a moment to pity that poor netminder, who winds up sprawled on the ice like Bambi with his legs in a tangle. Boom!
It's okay, dude. Mike Smith can relate.
Former King Jared Aulin played for the opposing side, also scoring a goal. After the game, he had Kopitar sign a puck for a friend, and had nothing but good things to say about him.
Sigh. I know everyone loves Anze. I just want that Kopitar breakaway brilliance back in LA.
