Golden Knights beat Kings in double overtime marathon

Los Angeles Kings Drew Doughty Suspended One Game for Illegal Hit Fleury dominant in first Golden Knights playoff win in franchise history

Forward Erik Haula ended the longest game in the franchise's young history with a goal in the second overtime to deliver the Golden Knights to a 2-1 win against the Los Angeles Kings, staking the new guys to a 2-0 series lead in the Western Conference First Round series.

NOTES: The Golden Knights were to 34-5-2 in the regular season when scoring first, second in the National Hockey League. "Maybe that helps we've been playing all year", Haula said of Neal.

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

Doughty was asked in the morning what his team will do if he is suspended.

The first period of Game 2 would best be summed up by saying that both teams played well despite stoppages due to clock problems.

Vegas outshot Los Angeles 56-30, with Quick being the only reason the Golden Knights didn't score two, three or six goals.

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.

"I thought it was a bad hit, but it's not for me to decide", Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said after Vegas' 1-0 victory Wednesday night.

"That's one of the best feelings in sports, finishing the game in that fashion", Haula said. But, for what it's worth, Minnesota battled throughout this one and it was a pretty tight, physical game until the end.

Vegas will look to take a 2-0 lead heading into Los Angeles for Game 3 on Sunday, and surely the Golden Knights would rather go into that stretch healthy.

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.

It doesn't appear the Vegas Golden Knights' storybook season is coming to an end soon (at least not for four more games, for sure).

In contrast, nobody on Vegas' roster played more than 38 minutes, with defenseman Nate Schmidt leading the Golden Knights at 37:19.

"(Quick) gave us a chance to win like he always does", Kings coach John Stevens said. "They're just going to have to go out there and play and play as hard as they can, and they'll do a great job". Assists on the play went to Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith.

Golden Knights enforcer Ryan Reaves, who was a healthy scratch for Game 1, didn't agree with the hit.

No penalty was called on the hit, but Carrier was not able to return to the game. "He hits this guy, hits his shoulder first and this guy goes off", Cherry said as a replay of the hit was shown. Fellow rock star Vince Neil got the crowd roaring to start the third period by winding up the air raid siren.
