The first period of Game 2 would best be summed up by saying that both teams played well despite stoppages due to clock problems.

"I don't think for one second that was suspension-worthy", Doughty said. "I think it's B.S., really".

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Erik Haula's goal in double overtime gave the Vegas Golden Knights a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night for a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series. Fleury, who won the gold medal for Canada at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, will be trying to win his third consecutive Stanley Cup in one of the most unlikeliest of places as the Golden Knights are an expansion franchise. One year later, the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, who entered the National Hockey League with Florida in 1993-94, took a 2-0 lead against the Phoenix Coyotes in their first playoff series and went on to win in seven games. That made the Wild 1-for-4 on power plays.

Shortly after the Kings goal, the Knights went back to work on the offensive end.

"It wasn't a clean hit at all", Golden Knights forward Alex Tuch said. The Kings, by nature a physical team, dominated the hits count 47-34, which was perhaps the only reason they were still in the game.

Before Vegas, the only first-year team to start 2-0 in the playoffs was the 1968 Kings, who ended up losing to the North Stars in seven games. "I saw four hits last that deserve more games than that so we'll see what he does now". Los Angeles outhit the Golden Knights 80-56 after the two combined for 113 in regulation. "Now we've got to go home to take care of business at home". With Kyle Clifford in the penalty box for goalie interference, Vegas took a 1-0 lead when Jonathan Marchessault's shot from the high slot caromed off the boards straight to Tuch, who easily slapped in the rebound past Quick's glove side. "We don't play our best game every night, but we have a chance to win every night". After Shea Theodore's goal 3:23 into the first period, it turned into a defensive battle with a hint of goaltending. The Los Angeles Kings have allowed three or less goals in 10 of their last 12 games.

Forman's first USA film " Taking Off " (1971) was also filmed with non-actors but failed to impress a non-European audience. Just two years later, Forman made " The Firemen's Ball ", a satirical look at the country's communist regime.

The Kings got their first goal of the series on a power play, when LaDue fired a wrist shot from the point to beat Fleury with 4:05 left in the second. "He hits this guy, hits his shoulder first and this guy goes off", Cherry said as a replay of the hit was shown.
