DALLAS (AP) — Justin Williams converted in the third round of
the shootout and the Los Angeles Kings ended a three-game losing
streak with a 1-0 victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday
Anze Kopitar gave the Kings the advantage in the first round of
the shootout, making a nifty move to fake Marty Turco out of
position, then tucking the puck into the net one-handed.
But Dallas’ Jere Lehtinen drew the Stars even in the third
round, beating Jonathan Quick with a forehand shot from the
Williams was up next, and he gave the Kings the extra point when
his shot trickled over the goal line after Turco appeared to
make the stop. The officials went to video replay, which showed
the puck over the goal line.
The Stars, 0-4-1 in their past five, are 12th in the Western
Conference with 75 points, three more than the Kings.
Turco made 30 saves. Quick stopped 29.
