How Did He Do That? Dwight King Roofs Wrister From 100 Feet
The St. Louis Blues took a commanding 3-0 lead against the L.A. Kings at the Staples Center on Thursday night, but by the time that Dwight King sailed this 100-foot roof job past a flummoxed Martin Brodeur (see video above) late in the third period, that lead was gone and then some. More: Foligno and Karlson's Massive Collision in slo-mo The Kings would end up scoring the final two goals of the evening to gain the 6-4 victory in this Western Conference battle, thanks to a power player marker by Jake Muzzin that Brodeur never saw at 8:58, and this oddball, seeing eye shot off the stick of King that somehow knocks the water bottle. To add insult to injury, the Staples Center lighting crew was kind enough to flash the red light of shame on Brodeur for about ten seconds as he reflected on the situation while taking a sip of water. That is not cool, Staples Center lighting people. Brodeur, 42, drops to 2-2 on the season for the Blues, but to be fair, his defense completely disappeared in the final two periods of this game. He ended up saving 31 of 37 shots before being pulled for the extra skater with just over a minute and a half to go.
