Ryan Kesler Somersaults Into Embellishment Hall of Fame Before Mike Richards Destroys Alexandre Burrows (Video)

The Los Angeles Kings got the first, second and last laughs on Wednesday night, topping the Canucks 4-2 in Game 1 of their playoff series.

First, it was a Habs-esque embellishment by Ryan Kesler in the third period, tied 2-2, that would make even the softest soccer fan cringe. Then, during the closing seconds, it was Mike Richards (who had a goal and two assists) cleaning out Boston fan favorite Alexandre Burrows in front of the Canucks bench.

Check out both clips below starting with the winner of the breakthrough performance of the postseason.
