Langkow sends Coyotes past Kings in OT

Oct 30, 2011 - 5:42 AM
Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - Daymond Langkow scored with 44 seconds left in overtime as Phoenix took down Los Angeles, 3-2.

Radim Vrbata had two goals and an assist while Martin Hanzal added two assists for the Coyotes, who have won three of their last four. Mike Smith stopped 36 shots in the win.

Mike Richards and Anze Kopitar each had a goal for the Kings, who have lost two of their last three. Jonathan Quick stopped 30 shots in the loss.

"We had our moments in the game that were really good, but at the end we problems getting out of our end," Kings head coach Terry Murray said.

With time winding down in overtime, Langkow's shot from the slot hit off the stick of LA defenseman Jack Johnson and slipped past Quick for the win.

"I saw the opening there on the short side and just threw it," Langkow said. "I think it went off his stick or something and up and over him."

The Kings had tied the game 6:30 into the third period on a rush play that saw Trent Hunter snap a shot on net from the right wing with Kopitar backhanding in the rebound from in front.

The Kings grabbed the initial lead of the game with Richards' first goal since the opening game of the season when he one-timed home a Dustin Brown pass from the right circle at the 2:58 mark of the second period.

Phoenix, though, tied the game 5:36 into the second when Vrbata took a feed in the slot and skated over to the right circle to get Quick out of position and lifted it over the prone goaltender.

Vrbata's second goal of the game and third of the season with 4:37 to play in the second gave the Coyotes a 2-1 lead.
