GLENDALE, Ariz. -- In Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, the Phoenix Coyotes lost their home-ice advantage to the Los Angeles Kings. In Game 2, they've lost their composure.
With his team already down 2-0 in the second period, Phoenix captain Shane Doan hit Los Angeles forward Trevor Lewis into the boards from behind, earning a five-minute major penalty -- one of four the Coyotes took in the final five minutes of the period -- and a game misconduct at the 16:29 mark.
Doan, who waited 16 years for his opportunity to play in a conference final, will watch the third period from the dressing room.
With nine seconds left in a long 5-on-3 power play, Los Angeles center Anze Kopitar scored to give the Kings a 3-0 lead after two periods. The Kings, who are 6-0 on the road in the playoffs, scored on their sixth power play of the game and for just the fourth time in 57 chances in the playoffs.
