Golden Knights players celebrate win, prepare for Game 2

Drew Doughty NHL Playoffs 2018: LA Kings chances much worse without Drew Doughty

The Vegas Golden Knights forward did leave the game and did not return.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves for his 11th career playoff shutout, Shea Theodore scored in the first period and the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 on Wednesday night to win the franchise's first playoff game. Losing him for a full game when Jake Muzzin is already out as well is very tough. The under is 4-0-1 in the last 5 meetings. The most-surprising storyline of the 2017-18 season was the success of the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

The Los Angeles Kings' path to winning it's opening playoff series just became even tougher. "You have to think it's going to hurt their defensive core not having him in there".

Doughty addressed the media Friday and commented on his forced absence from the Kings' crucial second game.

Byfuglien has huge 'impact' for Jets in Game 2 win against Wild
Dustin Byfuglien was an absolute terror, a reminder of the value of big, physical players when the game shifts into playoff mode. The Jets had the game's first power play 24 seconds into the middle period after Minnesota's Eric Staal was called for tripping.

"He's obviously a great player, but I don't think we need to change too much", Vegas defenseman Colin Miller said. "When it gets down to it, you have to rely on instincts. Some buildings you can kill a guy and not get credit for a hit". However, it seems clear that Carrier was getting under the skin of Los Angeles players all night. The Los Angeles Kings had nothing offensively in their game one loss and have now had some struggles on the road recently.

Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said Carrier is day-to-day with an upper-body injury and did not disclose if he would be available Friday. In this case, Jonathan Quick is showing why he's one of the NHL's most accomplished playoff netminders, nullifying a Vegas attack that's occasionally racking up twice as many chances.

Carrier is expected to be in the lineup tonight. He led all players with a team-high 10 hits in a game that saw a whopping 127 combined hits. "He hits this guy, hits his shoulder first and this guy goes off", Cherry said as a replay of the hit was shown. "There was like 10 minutes left in the game, so when I was trying to get back there was no time left".
