Watch: Kings’ Kopitar dangles for goal against Stars

Wednesday March 16th, 2016

Los Angeles Kings center Anze Kopitar turned the Dallas Stars inside out on the way to scoring a highlight reel goal Tuesday night in Dallas. 

While being checked along the board, Kings forward Milan Lucic threaded a pass to Kopitar, who pulled off a smooth, almost effortless forehand-backhand deke around Stars defenseman Kris Russell before beating a sprawling Kari Lehtonen. 

The 28-year-old Slovenian has 22 goals on the season, and is now riding a three-game point streak for the Pacific Division-leading Kings, while Lucic has recorded points in six straight games.
