Kings 1, Canucks 0 - LA Kings Insider

After a Canucks-heavy start to the game, the Kings managed to score the first goal. Drew Doughty pinched down deep in the Vancouver zone, and his attempt to get the puck to the front of the net got deflected, but it got deflected right onto the stick of Kyle Clifford, who shot and scored from near the middle of the left circle to give the Kings a 1-0 lead with 6:51 remaining in the first period.
