Kings Win, Take 2-0 Series Lead Over Top-Seeded Canucks
(VANCOUVER) — Los Angeles Kings winger Dustin Brown scored two short-handed goals, tying a NHL playoff record, as the Kings took a 2-0 series advantage by beating the Vancouver Canucks 4-2.
“They’re huge goals,” Brown said. “Special teams is a big part of playoff hockey. It’s not to often that your going to see two short-handed goals like that.”
The win sends the Kings back to Los Angeles in the drivers seat, but Brown is cautious about getting to confident.
“I think it’s important for us to hit the reset button,” Brown said. “This team (Vancouver) has dominated the regular season and the majority of the playoffs last year pretty handily. I’m sure they’ve faced tougher situations than being down 2-0 in this series.”
Vancouver winger Jannick Hansen had a goal in the loss.
“We know we’re running out of options,” Hansen said. “We need to win game three. We need to come out not just here and there but a full sixty.”
Game three takes place in Los Angeles Sunday at 10:30PM ET.
