Dwight King scored the go-ahead goal and added another 25 seconds later in the third as the Los Angeles Kings defeated the New York Islanders 4-2 Wednesday night.

The game was tight until a flurry of goals by the Islanders in the third. Alec Martinez scored first in the opening period and then the game went scoreless through the second. The Islanders’ Anders Lee tied the game at 4:27 in the third and it was only at the very end that the shooters became unstoppable. King’s back-to-back goals at 17:07 and 17:32 were followed less than 20 seconds later by a Jake Muzzin shot into an empty net at 17:51. This was one of those games where fantasy owners don’t want to stop watching until the points’ totals are tallied.
