For the next several years, maybe even longer, Kings fans can expect to see video replays of Dustin Penner’s overtime goal from the 2012 Western Conference Final every time the team travels to Arizona. It sent Los Angeles to the Stanley Cup Final and capped off what had been a thrilling five-game series.
Immediately following the game, here’s what Brown told MayorsManor about the controversial hit:
Earlier this week, we spoke with Brown again, looking for his perspective on tonight’s re-match.
“For me, it’s just another game,” said the Kings captain. “I’ll prepare like it’s any other game. I think it’s always – you know, you talk about rivalries. You don’t really have a rivalry until you play in the playoffs and we played them in the Western Conference Finals. So, who knows? At the end of the day, for us, it’s about getting two points.”
Although Rozsival is no longer with Phoenix – leaving via free agency during the off-season – there are still plenty of Coyotes players who carry thoughts about what went down in the desert.
Is this just another game?
We’ll find out soon enough.
