Kings-Sharks 2-2 after 40 minutes, Doughty a Prophet?

A rare mid-game update…

San Jose jumped out to the early lead and were up 1-0 at the first intermission.  The Kings tied it at 7:25 of the second period with a goal from Dustin Brown – set up by a beautiful pass from Justin Williams.

Three minutes later, the Sharks regained the lead 2-1. Then, with less than four minutes remaining in the second period, Williams tied it up again with a sneaky goal, coming in from behind the net.

Before the Kings left LA for NoCal I asked several of the players who they thought would come up big for the team in this series with the Sharks.  Here’s what Drew Doughty had to say…

“I think there a lot of guys who are, but with Willie getting back in the line-up here, he’s going to be huge. He’s going to have that grit. He missed playing in our playoff run there at the end (of the regular season). So, he’s really going to want to be back in that line-up. I know that when he hits that ice for the first time in a game, he’s going to be flying.”
