Los Angeles Kings Drew Doughty Suspended One Game for Illegal Hit

NHL Playoffs 2018: LA Kings chances much worse without Drew Doughty

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty had a phone hearing with the NHL's Department of Players Safety on Thursday afternoon. "I don't think the pace will be quite the same as it was because guys are pretty exhausted and beat up from five periods of hockey tonight".

But they're on their way to advancing to the next round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after beating the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday.

The Golden Knights aren't planning on doing anything different with their game plan now that one of the best defensemen in the National Hockey League is out for a pivotal playoff game, but given Doughty's activity in Game 1, it's something Vegas will take note of. In order to survive the series the Kings will have to win four of the next five games against the Golden Knights, who have lost four out of five games only twice this season in 84 games.

Erik Haula scored 19 power-play goals.

The Golden Knights went into Game 1 almost 100 percent healthy for the first time in a month. "Obviously that last goal, Haula's speed created a lot of that goal", said Gallant, who got the victory exactly one year after being hired as coach of the Golden Knights. They played that game without injured defensemen Derek Forbort and Jake Muzzin and Stevens said they will likely be without both players again on Friday.

In October, Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL alleging the owners colluded to blackball him from the league. Kaepernick led San Francisco to the Super Bowl in 2012 where they fell to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Golden Knights outshot Los Angeles in regulation, 35-20. He led all players with a team-high 10 hits in a game that saw a whopping 127 combined hits. "That was probably the weekend where we said, 'You know what, we'll see what happens here, but we like our chances'".

"Everything has been flawless, and we obviously hope the playoffs go as well as the regular season".

Theodore got on the board 3:23 into the first. Tuch was in front of the net to clean it up for his first career playoff goal, giving the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead late in the first period.

Alec Tuch accounted for the first goal on the power play while the Kings Paul LaDue tied it on the man advantage midway through the second period.

Both teams had their chances in overtime, but Fleury and Quick were magnificent between the pipes. The Los Angeles Kings have allowed three or less goals in 10 of their last 12 games. Rock star Gwen Stefani, a Southern California native raised in Anaheim, was shown on the T-Mobile video board delivering a "Go Knights Go!" chant during the first period.
