Kings take playoff lead with Doughty, Johnson @NHLdotcom

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -Drew Doughty and Jack Johnson have been the Los Angeles Kings' distant shining future on defense ever since the club acquired the pair of top-three draft picks a few years ago.

After watching these youngsters run Los Angeles' power play during their first three playoff games, it's undeniable the Kings' future has already arrived - and it's equally obvious the Vancouver Canucks have no idea how to stop it.

Doughty and Johnson have scored five points apiece while propelling the Kings' power play to seven goals, leading Los Angeles to a 2-1 first-round series lead over the Canucks.

Game 4 is Wednesday night at Staples Center.
