Drew Doughty Goes End To End To Make It 1-0

The Los Angeles Kings didn't have a great start. They got out-worked and heavily forechecked by the New Jersey Devils and had to kill a penalty. Drew Doughty, however, took things into his own hands and LA got the game's first goal.

Doughty came out of his own end, got by one of his own prone teammates, abused Ryan Carter, and went blocker side on Martin Brodeur to give Los Angeles a 1-0 lead.

The goal was reminiscent -- since were in New Jersey -- of Scott Niedermayer's end-to-end goal in the 1995 Finals. Doughty appears on his way to an okay career himself, and gives the Kings the result they wanted to start this game.
