Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi almost couldn't believe how much time and space he had after Filip Forsberg fed him the puck in the slot early in overtime against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday at Staples Center.
Josi beat Kings goalie Martin Jones with a wrist shot 18 seconds into the extra period for a 7-6 win, ending Los Angeles' bid to cap a late three-goal rally with an overtime victory.
"I gave it to Filip, and Filip made a real patient play," Josi said. "He made a great play to me in a lot of space and lots of time. Good thing it went in. I was a little surprised getting that much space in OT. I just walked down the slot and tried to pick a corner."
