Watch: Drew Doughty’s laser beam wins Game 3 for the Kings
Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty is only 24 years of age, but he’s already got a ridiculous list of accomplishments to his name. Doughty has won a Stanley Cup, two Olympic gold medals with Team Canada, and has been named an NHL All-Star.
One (albeit small) item missing from his resume was a game-winning goal in the playoffs. That changed last night, as Doughty won Game 3 of the Western Conference Final in style. Check out his ridiculous slap shot from just above the right circle, a twine-seeking missile that zipped past Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford for the Kings’ fourth goal of the night (and the eventual game-winner). The Kings now lead the series two games to one.
And for a bonus highlight, here’s Kings rookie forward Tyler Toffoli splitting the Chicago defense (Johnny Oduya and Niklas Hjalmarsson, both Olympians for Team Sweden at the 2014 Sochi Games) for a nice goal.
