Darryl did make it to the finals once with...

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Right now, there is no stopping the Los Angeles Kings' top line. There is only limiting it, or trying to anyway.
The Coyotes learned that the hard way Sunday night, dropping Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals 4-2 and now face the challenge of finding a way to counteract the red-hot line of Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams.
The line combined...

Phoenix, Ariz. For the first time since midway through the first round, the Los Angeles Kings faced a decent dose of adversity.
Leading 1-0 midway through the first period and thoroughly controlling the run of play, veteran Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris let loose a 99-foot slapshot from the red line that eluded Jonathan Quick to tie the game at one. Recalling playoff memories...

The Kings dominated most of the game and the final score of 4-2 was not really reflective of the play.
The Kings fired 48 shots at Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith while Phoenix managed to get 27 shots on Jonathan Quick.
Here is Dustin Brown’s game-winning goal which came early in the 3rd period.
Wow, the Kings. Whoddathunk that the 8th seed Los Angeles Kings would beat both top seeds in the Western Conference to make it all the way to the Conference Final series…in only 9 games. They’ll take on the 3rd seeded Phoenix Coyotes who have been very impressive in their own right beating a tough Predators team pretty convincingly last round.
I’m going to get the goalie...
