Double overtime goal gives Knights victory over Kings

NHL Playoffs 2018 Wednesday scores, schedule: Golden Knights shut out Kings, Penguins blank Flyers, Jets edge Wild

On Wednesday night, the National Hockey League playoffs kicked off with three games featuring some of the top teams in the National Hockey League.

This suspension plays a huge part in the Kings' first-round series.

Los Angeles now hosts the next two games, Sunday and Tuesday night, and will likely need them both.

Doughty was suspended for one game for an illegal check to the head of Vegas Golden Knights forward William Carrier in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series Wednesday night.

Here, we have everything you need to follow along. The only noticeable absence was that of David Perron (and it's unclear whether or not he'll play in Game 2 on Friday). Even without some of LA's best defensemen, their ability to keep the puck out of the back of the net was commendable - although perhaps most of that credit should go to goalie Jonathan Quick, who finished with an insane 54 saves on 56 shots.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 29 saves, passing Curtis Joseph for sole possession of 12th place on the NHL's all-time playoff wings list with 64. With a home crowd in Game 2, it's not out of the question to see the Kings have to go to the Staples Center down 2-0 in the series.

Haula, who arrived in Vegas courtesy of the Wild, accepted a slick pass James Neal through traffic and found space near the right face-off circle. If I'm in that game I'd probably try and go do something about it. Seemingly leaving NHL Player Safety no other choice than to give Doughty a suspension. If they can't do that, this series is all but over.

Alec Tuch accounted for the first goal on the power play while the Kings Paul LaDue tied it on the man advantage midway through the second period.

In contrast, nobody on Vegas' roster played more than 38 minutes, with defenseman Nate Schmidt leading the Golden Knights at 37:19.

It wasn't as quick as Game 1, but once again the Kings find themselves down after the first period. Those two wins improved the Golden Knights to 19-9-1. The onus is on the Kings to break that stretch moving forward.

Theodore got on the board 3:23 into the first. On a night that saw Pittsburgh get plenty of power-play opportunities and thoroughly out-shoot their bitter rivals, it was Philly's top line that delivered with the help of Nolan Patrick off the bench. Pacific and 2-5 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest.

The biggest blow between the Flyers and Penguins in Game 2 of the divisional showdown may not have been intentional at all.

"Only that he's continued to progress along, get him on the ice", he said.

No penalty was called on the hit, but Carrier was not able to return to the game. And that led to the Flyers' first goal of the playoffs - a deep shot from Shayne Gostisbehere.
