Tyler Toffoli scores slick backhand goal against Sharks

After spending most of the year in the AHL and scoring 28 goals in 58 games with the Manchester Monarchs and winning AHL rookie of the year, Tyler Toffoli is finally getting his shot with the big club.  Toffoli has only played five playoff games for the Los Angeles Kings so far, but he has been looking like a seasoned vet.  After San Jose Sharks goalie Antti Niemi left the net to play the puck to Brad Stuart, Toffoli picked off Stuart’s pass, kicked it up to his stick from his skates and then buried a nice backhander past Niemi.  The Kings have been rolling ever since they went down 2-0 to the St. Louis Blues in the first round and are looking like the dominating team that won the Stanley Cup last year.
