The point of no return

Anze Kopitar has established himself as a pretty quality, clever player through this postseason, playing at about as high a level as you can maintain through three series and one game. There was no drop off in one game of the Stanley Cup as expected and, unsurprisingly, he scored the game winning goal.

Those of us who had him in a certain Score newsroom overtime office pool were jovial…

… and those of us who were trying to contain our bitterness were in awe of the goal and SOME of us were furious that Justin Williams got the first assist and not the goal.

A lot of things had to go right for Kopitar to slot it home, but it was a pretty killer effort nonetheless.

Here’s the video.
