NHL Game Summary - Los Angeles at Florida
(Monday, November 16th)
Final Score: Los Angeles 4, Florida 3 (SO)
Sunrise, FL (Sports Network) - Jack Johnson notched the lone goal in the shootout as Los Angeles downed Florida, 4-3.
Johnson closed the second round with a nifty forehand score, tucking the puck just beyond the outstretched pad of Tomas Vokoun. Cory Stillman's backhander was turned aside by Jon Quick to end the game.
Johnson, Randy Jones and Jarret Stoll tallied in regulation for the Kings, who had beaten Tampa Bay in a shootout on Saturday and finished a five-game road trip at 3-2-0.
Quick stopped 26 shots through 65 minutes of action for the win.
"When you're playing in this league today and traveling as much as we have through this trip -- to get three wins at the end of the road trip, I would have been very happy to say to the team before we started out that this would be great if we could do it on this trip," said Kings head coach Terry Murray.
Nathan Horton, Stillman and Victor Oreskovich scored for the Panthers, who had won back-to-back games in the shootout against Boston and the New York Islanders.
Vokoun took the loss after a 31-save performance.
"The game should have been won in regulation," Vokoun said. "Teams are too good. You saw the game against the Islanders. They let us back (from a 2-0 deficit) and wound up losing. Same thing happened to us today."
Florida tallied twice in a 1:35 span early in the second period with Horton scoring at 2:05 followed by Stillman at 3:40.
Johnson picked up a power-play goal at 9:10, then Stoll tied the game at the 2:23 mark of the third with a power-play marker.
Jones netted his second score as a King to push LA in front 3-2 at 7:58, but Oreskovich stashed home a loose puck in the crease with 5:05 to play.
