End of first: 0-0

The Kings outshot Florida 10-7 in the uneven period. The Panthers had six blocked shots in the game’s first 11 minutes, a product of their own strong play and the Kings’ tendency to take long-range shots, particularly when they had the period’s only power play. Justin Williams had a team-high three shots for the Kings.
