Kings Edge Coyotes 4-3 in Overtime to Win West
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Dustin Penner scored 17:42 into overtime and the Los Angeles Kings are headed to the Stanley Cup finals for the second time as a franchise after beating the Phoenix Coyotes with a 4-3 win in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals Tuesday night.

Penner gathered a bouncing puck and beat Mike Smith between the pads for the game-winner, extending the Kings' road winning streak to an NHL-record eight straight games. Anze Kopitar scored a shorthanded goal, Drew Doughty had a goal and an assist, and Mike Richards also scored for Los Angeles.

The first team to go undefeated on the road to the Stanley Cup finals, the Kings will face the Devils or Rangers in Game 1 on June 6.
