As a double whammy, Vegas still wound up winning 1-0.
The Los Angeles Kings have had a rough week. Not a great start for the guys in orange.Everything you need to know to watch the playoffsNot everyone follows all season, and we understand that.
"It's one of the best feelings in sports, I think, is finishing the game in that fashion". To win the series and continue to the next round, the Kings will only need to win one game on the road as long as they can win at home. "It's rewarding to come out on top".
Haula's double-overtime victor gave Vegas a 2-1 win, ending the game after 95 minutes of torturous, grueling hockey that left both teams battered, bruised and gasping for air. "I don't want to sound disrespectful when I say this, but sometimes I don't even know where they're situated when they are marking those stats". "I was open on the side, but I guess Erik was open too". Vegas ranked second in the National Hockey League by converting 29 of 102 power plays since January 21. "I don't know what Game 2 is going to take out of both teams".
With about four minutes to go in the period, Paul LaDue scored the Kings' first goal of the 2018 playoffs. assists on the goal were given to defenseman Dion Phaneuf and Michael Amadio.
In the other net, Quick put on a show as he finished with 54 saves.
"That's awful", LaDue said. Without Quick's wonderful play, this game likely doesn't even go to an extra frame. We have to be better and it's going to be a grind for sure.
Even though they took 30 shots, the Kings were shutout in the first game of the series. Jonathan Marchessault, he got eight hits.
The Knights are 10-1 in their last 11 Sunday games and are 5-2 in their last seven overall while the Kings are 4-1 in their last five home games and 2-5 in their last seven against the Pacific.
With superstar defenceman Drew Doughty suspended one game for his hit to the head Wednesday on William Carrier, and the Kings still missing No. 2 blue-liner Jake Muzzin with an undisclosed injury, the best L.A. defender was Quick.
The game was the longest ever played by a team in its inaugural season, and the longest in Kings franchise history. "I don't think anybody would be playing tomorrow if those numbers were accurate".
"Midnight is a new day". "You got to play physical".
Flyers goalie Brian Elliott didn't get much help from his defense, but his showing in the opening period of the series certainly left a lot to be desired for Philly fans. "It was a hard game, but it's fun to get the win".
The Kings will be boosted by the return of the former Norris Trophy victor Doughty and a possible return by another veteran defenseman in Jake Muzzin, who missed the first two games with an upper-body injury.
