Hot Jeff Carter Leading The Los Angeles Kings

from Mike Brophy of CBC,

Look out Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter is nipping at your heels.

With his fourth goal in two games (fifth in three), Carter has helped the Los Angeles Kings erase an early 1-0 deficit and take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference final.

Entering the series Kopitar was running away with the playoff scoring lead, but he has been mostly silent against the Chicago Blackhawks. He has one assist in three games and has been otherwise invisible.

Carter, on the other hand, has been electric. He had an assist in Game 1; three goals and four points in Game 2 and Saturday continued to rock with a goal and two assists. That leaves him with eight goals and 19 points in 17 games; one point behind Kopitar.
