Kings' Doughty suspended one game for hit on Golden Knights' Carrier

Kings' Doughty suspended one game for hit on Golden Knights' Carrier

Doughty was suspended for one game for an illegal check to the head of Vegas Golden Knights forward William Carrier in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series Wednesday night.

It has been a season to remember for the Vegas Golden Knights.

Tuch scored for expansion Vegas in regulation, and Paul LaDue had the Kings' goal.

Doughty, who played a game-high 28:02 in the first game, will surely be missed as the Kings try to win game two of the series. Tomas Nosek came from behind the goal to fire a pass to Theodore, and he blasted a wrist shot through traffic for the Golden Knights' first playoff goal.

The Golden Knights were also without No. 1 goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury for those two games, but Malcolm Subban made a career-high 41 saves and Reilly Smith scored the only goal in a six-round shootout in a 4-3 shootout win over Nashville on December 8.

"That was the time we said, 'We have a good hockey team here, '" said Gallant, who was hired by the Golden Knights on April 13, 2017. He didn't practice Thursday and was listed as day-to-day by Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant. But, for what it's worth, Minnesota battled throughout this one and it was a pretty tight, physical game until the end. With a home crowd in Game 2, it's not out of the question to see the Kings have to go to the Staples Center down 2-0 in the series.

Kings defenseman Oscar Fantenberg led the team with 53 shifts, while fellow defenseman Alec Martinez led the club with 44 minutes, 43 seconds on ice. Vegas dominated puck possession from the onset, outshooting the Kings 33-20 in the first three periods.

The Golden Knights' locker room looked more like a hospital clinic during the brief overtime intermissions Friday night than a strategic meeting room. Stevens said there was no significant update on his availability. "A lot of guys played hard tonight, not just Jonny". "We don't play our best game every night, but we have a chance to win every night". 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. "Now we've got to go home to take care of business at home".

The Los Angeles Kings hadn't given up a power play goal to the Golden Knights all year. until the 14:47 mark in the first period of Game 2.

Both teams had their chances in overtime, but Fleury and Quick were magnificent between the pipes.

Just about 18 minutes into Game 2 of the Pens-Flyers matchup, Pittsburgh's Zach Aston-Reese found himself in the penalty box for boarding, with Philly's Ivan Provorov doing a little acting to seal the deal. "He hits this guy, hits his shoulder first and this guy goes off", Cherry said as a replay of the hit was shown.
