Drew Doughty gets 2 goals after video review

NHL.com @NHL
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.
