Postgame notes, boxscore (Sept. 27)

Some notes (and a boxscore) from last night’s game…

– The Kings allowed two third-period goals, then tied the game with a third-period power-play goal and lost in the eighth round of the shootout as they fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on Tuesday night in Kansas City.

– The Kings played at Sprint Center for the third time in the last four years.

– Jonathan Bernier played the entire game and stopped 39 of 41 shots, plus 6 of 8 in the shootout.

– Jarret Stoll scored a first-period goal and also assisted on Alec Martinez’s third-period power-play goal. Martinez, in turn, also assisted on Stoll’s goal.

– Dustin Brown and Justin Williams also had assists for the Kings.

– The Penguins outshot the Kings 41-21, including 15-3 in the third period.

– The Kings went 1-for-2 on the power play and 4-for-4 on the penalty kill, including a Pittsburgh 5-on-3 advantage that lasted 1:43.

Since there was no regular NHL box score from last night, I’ll re-create one. Stats such as time on ice, blocked shots, hits and faceoffs were not available.
