Video: Dustin Penner's Game 5 overtime winner sends Kings to Final

By Adam Gretz | Hockey writer
Dustin Penner probably wasn't the first name you picked to score a game-winning goal in overtime for the Los Angeles Kings. He scored just seven goals in 63 regular season games. Before Tuesday night he had scored just two in the playoffs. He missed time during the regular season because of an injury he suffered while eating pancakes!

But there he was, in overtime, scoring the series-clinching goal that secured a spot in the Stanley Cup Final for the Kings.

Not long after a controversial hit at the blue line that resulted in Coyotes defenseman Michal Rozsival leaving the game with an injury, Penner pounced on a loose puck between the circles and rifled a shot past Coyotes goalie Mike Smith.

And this is what it looked like...
