Found May 24, 2013 on Diehardsport:

Liz Habib and Fox 11 in Los Angeles are back providing playoff highlights for Los Angeles Kings fans, and once again they are back doing a terrible job.  According to Habib, Willie Mitchell scored with 10 minutes left in the third period of game four against the San Jose Sharks.  Unfortunately for Habib, it was actually Mike Richards that scored.  Mitchell hasn’t played in a game since game 6 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals and because his knee is so messed up, he might miss the start of the 2013-2014 season too. If you remember the name Liz Habib, it’s because she was the one behind the “Anze Kopidor” and “Brad Doty” highlight segment, that even consisted of the old NHL logo from before the lockout.  Yeah, Fox 11 news is really brutal when it comes to hockey.

Matthew Barry: That's More Like It

One more to go. The Kings came out pounding their collective chests like an angry gorilla. 51 hits, most of them in the first period.
