LA Kings Open 2010-11 Season With Two-Game Split In Canada On NHL Video
October 11, 2010 1 Comment
On October 9, Justin Williams scored a late power play goal to get the Kings into overtime and a shootout, where Anze Kopitar and Jack Johnson scored to give the Kings a 2-1 shootout victory over the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
Jonathan Quick got the start in goal, making 23 saves and did not allow a goal in the shootout.
At the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary on October 10, the Kings offense sputtered and got outworked by a wide margin throughout most of the game, leading to a 3-1 Flames victory.
Down 2-1, the Kings got a late goal on a deflection by Dustin Brown, but never came close to scoring again.
Jonathan Bernier got the start in goal, allowing two goals on 31 shots, one of them a soft goal off a wrist shot from the top of the right circle by Flames center Craig Conroy.
Bernier was screened near the point of contact, and the shot was deflected, also near the point of contact, by Kings defenseman Davis Drewiske, but it appeared that Bernier should have been able to make the save.
Here are the highlights from both games courtesy NHL Video on YouTube:
