Frozen Royalty Video: Toffoli, Kopitar, Quick Lead LA Kings To 4-0 Rout of Phoenix Coyotes

LOS ANGELES — Anze Kopitar and rookie Tyler Toffoli each scored a goal and added an assist, while Jonathan Quick stopped all 27 shots he faced, to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 4-0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans at Staples Center in Los Angeles on March 18.

After the Coyotes had the best of the scoring chances early in the first period, Kings rookie defenseman Jake Muzzin opened the scoring on a shot from the top of the left circle at the 6:01 mark, with the Kings on the power play. Muzzin’s shot was deflected near the point of origin by Coyotes right wing David Moss, changing the direction of the shot.

Phoenix Coyotes Reaction To Game 5 Loss Was A Disgrace

COMMENTARY: The Phoenix Coyotes, seething after Los Angeles Kings right wing Dustin Brown flattened Coyotes defenseman Michal Rozsival late in the overtime period, lost their composure, and, as a result, the game, and the series. They embarrassed themselves, and their organization, after the game, with perhaps the most ridiculous excuses one could possibly imagine for losing a playoff series.

LOS ANGELES — After watching and listening to the reactions of some of the Phoenix Coyotes after they lost in Game 5 of the 2012 Western Conference Finals, a 4-3 overtime defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Kings, one would get the idea that the entire world, outside of the Phoenix metropolitan area, was against them.

That was just one of the common refrains emanating from the Coyotes dressing room after the game—they were livid about the officiating, especially after Kings right wing Dustin Brown laid out Coyotes defenseman Michal Rozsival at the Phoenix blue line late in the overtime period.

On the play, Brown was skating across the blue line, and had Rozsival lined up for a hit. A moment after the whistle blew for an offsides call, Brown nailed Rozsival, his shoulder slamming into his chest, while his left leg struck Rozsival’s left leg.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — After dropping Games 1 and 2 of the 2012 Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Kings, both rather lopsided affairs on home ice, the Phoenix Coyotes let their frustration boil over, as National Hockey League teams often do, resulting in a parade to the penalty box.

That frustration led to two dangerous incidents, including a careless, dangerous, knee-on-knee hit by Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris on Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi (Morris received a minor penalty on the play), and an even more dangerous hit from behind by Coyotes center Martin Hanzal Read more of this post
