Video: Nugent-Hopkins splits the Kings defense, scores a beauty goal

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins caps off a wild third period with a highlight reel goal, splitting the defense and going backhand for his second of the game.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored an absolutely gorgeous goal on Tuesday.

After picking up the puck at full speed in the neutral zone, Nugent-Hopkins skated right through the L.A. Kings’ defense, leaving Drew Doughty in his dust, and deking to the backhand on Jonathan Quick for the goal.

That was his second goal of the night and 18th of the season.
