After an overtime win in Game 1, the San Jose Sharks were looking to take a 2-0 series lead over the Los Angeles Kings before the series shifted to Southern California. But L.A. defenseman Drew Doughty had other plans.
After assisting on Jack Johnson’s power-play goal that opened the scoring midway through the first period, Doughty notched a PPG of his own exactly 3 1/2 minutes later to give the Kings a 2-0 lead at the first intermission. The 21-year-old kept the momentum going in the second, firing a shot from just inside the blue line and through the pads of Antti Niemi to put the Kings ahead 3-0. Early in the third period, Doughty collected his fourth point of the night when he assisted on Kyle Clifford’s tally that made the score 4-0 -- which is how the game would end.
Behind Doughty’s two goals and two assists, L.A. tied the series at 1-1, earning a split of the first two games before heading to the Staples Center for Games 3 and 4. Another big factor in the lopsided victory was the man between the pipes for the Kings, Jonathan Quick. The Connecticut native stopped all 34 shots he faced, recording the first playoff shutout by a Kings goalie since 2002 when Felix Potvin blanked Colorado 1-0 in Game 5 of their first-round series.
