Two quick goals. First, Alexander Frolov picked off a pass in the neutral zone, brought the puck up the left side, then fed a perfect centering pass to Wayne Simmonds. Simmonds then did a nice job of controlling the puck and, as he skated to the front of the net, went to his backhand and beat Auld with 4:23 left in the period.
Dallas scored just 37 seconds later. Rob Scuderi’s attempt to send the puck in the Dallas zone got blocked by James Neal, who then picked up the puck, started a 3-on-1 break and beat Jonathan Quick with a wrist shot to make it 2-1 Kings.
