Drew Doughty scored his first goal of the playoffs 12:37 into the first period of Friday night's eventual series-clinching 2-1 Kings win.

Doughty beat Brian Elliott with a mid-range snap shot after faking a slapper from the point. Although he played four minutes less than the 29:35 average he entered Friday with, Doughty's 25:02 still led the Kings in ice time. If the Kings are going to repeat this year, they'll need Doughty to be one of the best players on the ice on a night by night basis.
