Vegas’ offensive burst broke open a third straight game of tense, defence-dominated playoff hockey between a franchise that won two Cups while perfecting that style and another that didn’t exist a year ago.

The Kings took their first lead of the series 13:14 into Game 3 when Iafallo roofed a shot behind Fleury so quickly that it was initially waved off by the officials, who eventually reversed themselves. Iafallo, the speedy Los Angeles rookie who became a surprise top-liner this season, hadn’t scored a goal in his last 12 games since March 3, and he was scratched for Game 2.

Kopitar and Dustin Brown got assists on Iafallo’s goal, earning their first points of the post-season. Los Angeles’ top-end offensive talent was slow to emerge on the road, where the Knights’ persistent two-way game and Fleury’s goaltending ruled.

Erik Haula butt-ended Kopitar in the face after a cross-check, and Jonathan Marchessault was penalized for retaliating to a hit from Doughty, who then mock-clapped for Marchessault and pointed to his own head.
