Drew Doughty gets 2 goals after video review
Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty left Wednesday's 3-1 win at Edmonton with a pair of assists. After further review, he wound up with a pair of goals instead.

The first two of the Kings' three goals were credited to forward Ryan Smyth, a former Oilers star who's still a crowd favorite in Edmonton. Smyth got credit for tipping two of Doughty's power-play shots past Edmonton goalie Nikolai Khabibulin.

But Smyth said afterward he hadn't touched either shot. The NHL reviewed the video on Thursday and agreed, crediting Doughty with his first multigoal game of the season.

Doughty had just 4 goals in his first 45 games for the Kings after getting 16 goals and 43 assists as a Norris Trophy finalist last season.
Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
