Kings on the board
The action is under way on the West Coast, and the Los Angeles Kings have scored that much-needed first goal.

Wayne Simmonds drew first blood for L.A. as he redirected Rob Scuderi's shot past Antti Niemi to give the Kings a 1-0 lead just 3:36 into Game 5 of their Western Conference Quarterfinal series at San Jose.
Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
