End of first: 0-0
Both teams played smart, tight first periods, with one one shot on goal recorded (by the Kings) in the game’s first five minutes. The Kings had the best chance of the period, on a short breakaway by Anze Kopitar, but former Kings goalie Cristobal Huet made the save for Chicago. The teams traded offensive chances throughout the period, but neither team had a power play until the Kings’ Michal Handzus was called for hooking with 3:11 left in the period. Shots were 7-4 Chicago.
