End of first: Kings 1-0

The Kings escaped the first period with the lead, but got some potentially bad news late. With 2:16 left, Jack Johnson blocked Sheldon Souray’s shot with his lower leg area, and left the ice very gingerly after the period. The Kings outshot the Oilers 11-9 in the first period.
