Justin Williams, aka “Mr. Game 7,” as he was named for having achieved a personal 7-o win record in playoff Game 7s, got one past New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist in overtime Wednesday night to lead the L.A. Kings to a Game 1 victory in the Stanley Cup finals. Take a look.
Could this be the start of more nicknames for the 32-year-old right wing? Kings fans think so, judging from their reactions to Wednesday night’s action.
