-The Kings fell to 18-25 overall in Game 2s. When the Kings have lost a Game 2, they have gone on to win 5-of-24 series.

-Jonathan Bernier made his postseason debut. Prior to tonight’s game, the last goalie other than Jonathan Quick to take part in a Kings playoff game was Erik Ersberg, who allowed two goals on four shots in relief of Quick in a 7-2 loss to Vancouver in Game 5 of the Kings-Canucks first round series on April 23, 2010.
