For the Los Angeles Kings, there’s nothing to be ashamed of – they just didn’t get the win.
A few quick post-game notes:
* Earlier this week coach Terry Murray was asked about the possibility of Drew Doughty‘s ice time increasing to around 30 minutes per game in the playoffs (article here). With the extra time needed to determine the outcome, Doughty played a team high 30:28. Dan Boyle led the Sharks with 35 minutes even.
* Not only did Justin Williams lead the Kings with two points (a goal and an assist), he produced the most shots also – six. San Jose was led by Devin Setoguchi with seven shots.
* Dustin Brown was tops on the Kings with seven hits, followed by Alexei Ponikarovsky with six. Seriously. The seven were matched by Setoguchi and Doug Murray of the Sharks.
Game two is Saturday night in San Jose.
Until then, here are the video highlights, as collected from the San Jose feed…
