The Los Angeles Kings took a 2-1 lead over the Vancouver Canucks during the first half of the second period after giving up a 1-0 lead just seconds into the frame. Dustin Brown scored his second shorthanded goal of the game at 5:17 in the period, which came exactly five minutes after Jannik Hansen tied the game at one. Brown's first shorthanded goal came at 19:51 in the first period.
For his second goal, Brown battled through traffic on his own end of the ice to escape with the puck down the right side of the ice. He was then able to get ahead of the two defenders chasing him. He then crossed in front of Roberto Luongo and backhanded the puck in for the shorthanded goal. Willie Mitchell was in the box for holding.
The Canucks are 0-for-3 on the power play and have allowed goals twice while with the man advantage. Luongo has made 11 saves on 13 shots.
