Live blog: Kings vs. Colorado

The live chat should be up and going, but the blog server seems to be having some issues. I’ll keep this open as a “live blog” as well, to post goals and such during the game, rather than having 15 different posts during the game.

To start, Peter Harrold, Kyle Calder and Brian Boyle are the scratches for the Kings, as expected. For the Avalanche, it’s Ben Guite and Daniel Tjarnqvist.

FIRST PERIOD

4:34: Kings on power play. Smyth for hooking.

6:19: KINGS LEAD 1-0. Oscar Moller, on the power play, scores. He held the puck a couple feed beyond the end line and took a sweeping shot toward the net. Budaj, playing a pass, had the puck deflected off his leg and into the net.

11:28: TIED 1-1. Ryan Smyth slips the defense, takes a centering pass from Paul Stastny and scores from the left circle.

16:20: Kings have a brief 5-on-3 power play but go scoreless.

END OF FIRST PERIOD: TIED 1-1

SECOND PERIOD

3:02: KINGS LEAD 2-1. Patrick O’Sullivan with the backhand on a rebound, assists to Stoll and Moller.

4:01: TIED 2-2. Hejduk scores after a turnover by Handzus.

5:16: COLORADO LEADS 3-2. David Jones scores after a poor clearing attempt by the Kings and scores on a long-range slap shot. Colorado has three goals on six shots.

16:32: COLORADO LEADS 4-2. Ryan Smyth gives Drew Doughty a NHL education, and he goes around him, goes in alone on LaBarbera and scores on the backhand.

END OF SECOND PERIOD. COLORADO LEADS 4-2.

2:25: COLORADO LEADS 4-3. Drew Doughty with his first NHL goal, a wrist shot from the left circle.

FINAL. COLORADO WINS 4-3.
