FIRST PERIOD
20:00: Underway in the desert.
19:40: McNabb is caught in a pinch, and Richardson leads a two-on-one the other way. He patiently holds up in the right circle and fires off a high-grade chance that Budaj kicks aside.
17:01:

16:46: Odd end boards carom pops out in front to Gaudet, who has a high-grade chance in front. Budaj save. He covers up.
16:30: Dwight King circles the net, fires off a hard, low snap shot. Right pad save, Smith.
11:51: Long stretch of Insider-approved, whistle-free action. Roughly three minutes earlier, Nic Dowd made a good read on a play when realizing he didn’t have any good lanes to advance the puck and circled back towards his blue line. A lane opened up, allowing him to distribute the puck quickly across the ice to the right wing, and the Kings received a short burst of zone time.
11:46: PENALTY LAK. King for hooking.
10:37:

9:54: PENALTY ARI. Bunting goes off for hooking. Kings have their opportunity with the man advantage.

Dowd receives a secondary assist. Really nice pass by Forbort, who fooled everyone but Purcell.
6:00: Bissonnette with a chance after a feed from behind the goal line by Auger, but he catches the outside of the net.
3:00: Good offensive zone strip by Auger on Hache to set up an offensive opportunity, but no high grade chances were taken.
1:35:

0:00: End period.
