FIRST PERIOD

20:00: Tonight's game is now underway.

15:35: Anton Lander, fresh off his newly-signed two-year contract extension earlier today, had a great chance to tie it up. Taylor Hall spotted him at the top of the crease and he quickly redirected it on goal. Jonathan Quick made a big stop to keep his team in front.

12:53: The Kings make it a 2-0 lead less than five minutes later. Anze Kopitar spotted Marian Gaborik in the slot and he made no mistake, rifling it past Scrivens to double the lead for the home team. | LA 2, EDM 0

1:53: The Kings went on the attack while killing the penalty. Anton Lander skated back to try and impede the progress of Kopitar on a two-on-one and received two minutes for hooking as a result. This put the teams four skaters aside for 1:05 and gave the Kings a power play to round out the opening period.

0.0: Shots on goal after one period were 12-9 for the home team.

SECOND PERIOD
