The Los Angeles Kings are just 20 minutes away from taking a 2-0 series lead over the Vancouver Canucks. After taking Game 1, 4-2, the Kings hold a 2-1 lead before the start of the third period. Kings right winger Dustin Brown has been huge for the team, scoring both goals while on the penalty kill.
Brown scored the first goal of the game with just nine seconds left in the first period. But the Canucks wasted no time answering back in the second period. Jannik Hansen tied the game after just 17 ticks of the clock. Hansen redirected a shot from the blue line while in front of the net, putting the puck past Jonathan Quick. Five minutes later, Brown answered back with another shorthanded goal, busting past two defenders and backhanding the puck beyond Roberto Luongo.
Vancouver did have a few chances to tie the game during the final minutes of the period, but Quick proved to be a brick wall. He's made 24 of 25 saves so far. Luongo has faced just 17 shots and made 15 saves. His offense will need to do better than going 0-for-4 on the power play.
