Golden Knights overwhelm Kings in double OT

Drew doughty hits william carrier

Despite a crushing Game 7 loss the last time Toronto faced the Boston Bruins in the playoffs in 2013, Leafs players say both teams have changed a lot. Vegas dominated puck possession from the onset, outshooting the Kings 33-20 in the first three periods.

In contrast, nobody on Vegas' roster played more than 38 minutes, with defenseman Nate Schmidt leading the Golden Knights at 37:19. "On the hearing and whatnot, we came to a conclusion that I did not intend to hit the head". The Jets, meanwhile, beat up on Wild 4-1 to take a 2-0 series lead to Minnesota.

Los Angeles Kings D-man Drew Doughty wasn't shy about sharing his thoughts on the one-game suspension the National Hockey League department of player safety handed him for his high hit on Golden Knights forward William Carrier.

Here, we have everything you need to follow along. As of Friday afternoon, 59 percent of bets are being placed on host Las Vegas. Muzzin has offensive prowess and the ability to put the puck in the net, he's but he's also a rugged defender. Things weren't quite as stressful for Vegas' Marc-Andre Fleury, who saved 29 of 30 over the course of nearly five periods. The mid-air goal might not have even been his best on Wednesday, because ... well, look at this redirect.

The Vegas Golden Knights won their first ever Stanley Cup playoff game Wednesday with a series-opening victory over the Los Angeles Kings. "It was a great game, great battle and unbelievable for our fans tonight". Of the three games on the schedule, the Kings have the best chance of pulling off the upset.

It's a devastating way to lose for the Kings, but now they need to shake it off.

"Hopefully they have me, but I don't know", Doughty said after Kings practice Thursday. In the postseason, players tend to get weighted suspensions. If they can't do that, this series is all but over.

The Vegas Golden Knights protected home ice in Games 1 and 2 taking both games in the quarterfinals. It turns out Friday the 13th was an unlucky day for the Kings, as they'll have to try to avoid going down 2-0 in the series without their top defenseman.

It wasn't as quick as Game 1, but once again the Kings find themselves down after the first period. The Golden Knights are 29-11 in their last 40 home games, 19-8 in their last 27 vs. The onus is on the Kings to break that stretch moving forward.

Theodore got on the board 3:23 into the first.

As for missing Game 2, Doughty did not hide his feelings. That has to be mildly concerning because at this point the Penguins and Flyers have only played one game and Brad Marchand hasn't gone full Brad Marchand yet. However, it seems clear that Carrier was getting under the skin of Los Angeles players all night.

Haula took a pass from James Neal inside the blue line and then came in alone on the right side of the net, where he deked Kings goalie Jonathan Quick and fired a shot through his pads for his seventh career playoff goal.
