May 20, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA
The Los Angeles Kings were denied a sweep of the Phoenix Coyotes in front of the home crowd due to the stellar performance of goalie Mike Smith. His 36 saves blanked the Kings en route to a 2-0 victory and the chance for the Coyotes to take a breath.
Captain Shane Doan scored both goals, the first on a power play, which ended a streak of 30 straight penalties killed by the Kings.
The best-of-seven series heads back to Phoenix for Game 5 with the Coyotes on the brink of elimination in the Western Conference finals.
