WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Milan Lucic could only smile when asked if he really scored the deciding goal in the Los Angeles Kings’ 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.
Tyler Toffoli went down the side of the ice with the puck and looked about to shoot it, but instead sent it across the front of the net and Lucic was credited with redirecting it past goalie Ondrej Pavelec.
But it may have gone in off Jets defenseman Tyler Myers’ stick with 4:41 left in regulation time to give the Kings the 2-1 lead.
“Ahh, going to have to look at the video,” Lucic said of his second goal of the season. “I mean, if the video shows that it hit me, I’ll take it. But if it didn’t, it’s Tyler’s goal.
“But at the end of the day, you know regardless of who gets it, it’s a big goal at a big moment and the one that got us that win.”
The victory was the sixth straight for the Kings (6-3-0), who lost their first three games of the season…
