Vid: Kings, Coyotes Play Wild One, Dwight King Gets First Career Hat Trick

Why are we watching Kings-Coyotes highlights? Because this was the game of the night on Thursday. Almost every goal is pure brilliance. Watch at the :22 mark (***see video above***) when Kings center Anze Kopitar flicks a behind-the-back pass to get the Primary assist on Dwight King's goal. It is magic.

The Kings blew a 4-0 lead and eventually won 7-4.

Even the empty netter, which gave King his first career hat trick, was solid (it's not ideal finishing a hat trick with an empty netter, but c'est la vie).

Here's a great quote from Kings' coach Darryl Sutter that I came across on the L.A. Times Kings coverage:

"Good thing they didn't kick a field goal on the last play of the game."
