A couple notes on first goals

A couple members of the Kings’ staff were really on their games last night, in terms of digging up good statistics in relation to the first NHL goals for Dwight King and Jordan Nolan.

Here’s one: Four Kings scored their first NHL goals in road games against the Dallas Stars this season. Slava Voynov scored his first two NHL goals on Oct. 27. Kevin Westgarth scored his first NHL goal on Nov. 23. King and Nolan each scored their first NHL goal last night. That stat comes courtesy of Rohin Das, member of the Fox Sports West production crew.

Also, King and Nolan became the first pair of Kings to score their first NHL goals in the same game since Oct. 20, 2008, when Drew Doughty and Oscar Moller scored in a home game against Colorado. That stat is courtesy of Nick Nickson.

Also, below are the videos of King’s and Nolan’s goals..
