LAS VEGAS (AP) Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty was suspended for one game Thursday for an illegal check to the head of Vegas Golden Knights forward William Carrier during Game 1 of the first-round playoff series.”I thought it was a bad hit Authentic Josh Allen Jersey , but it’s not for me to decide,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said after Vegas’ 1-0 victory Wednesday night. ”The referee didn’t think it was a penalty but I’m sure people will look at that hit and make a decision on it.”Doughty will miss Game 2 on Friday night in Las Vegas. He delivered the blow at 9:58 of the third period, sending Carrier to the locker room for the remainder of the game.”I thought you had two teams that played a real good hard, honest game,” Los Angeles coach John Stevens said following his team’s practice on Thursday. ”That was my interpretation. I think both teams upped their intensity and both teams understand the importance of the battle on the puck and there’s usually some kind of physical confrontation that comes from that.”Golden Knights enforcer Ryan Reaves, who was a healthy scratch for Game 1, didn’t agree with the hit.”Obviously, it’s a hit to the head, it was pretty blatant,” Reaves said. ”I don’t know if the ref maybe had a bad angle on it, but I’m sure the league will deal with it the way they need to. You never need to hit a guy in the jaw. … If I’m in that game I’d probably try and go do something about it. Maybe I can calm that situation down.”Vegas wing James Neal, who played with defending Western Conference champion Nashville last season, said the Golden Knights knew things could get heated against the Kings.”When you play teams like L.A., a heavy team, it’s going to be a physical game,” Neal said. ”We knew what to expect http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-josh-allen-jersey , especially being Game 1 of the playoffs. Everything’s ramped up a little bit extra, guys are out there going a little quicker, it was definitely physical.”And while the Kings outhit Vegas, 68-59, Stevens scoffed at the notion Game 1 was an overly physical game.”I think the teams played hard, I’m not sure where that number comes from, but I don’t think anybody would be playing tomorrow if those numbers were accurate,” Stevens said. ”I don’t want to sound disrespectful when I say this, but sometimes I don’t even know where they’re situated when they are marking those stats. There’s such a variety in the way those are gauged building to building that we usually go and look at our own stats.”Said Kings wing Dustin Brown: ”It was a physical game, (but) I don’t think there was nearly as many hits as the stats credited. Some buildings you can kill a guy and not get credit for a hit.” SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) James Neal prides himself on scoring big goals.He delivered again on Thursday night.Neal and Jonathan Marchessault scored in a 3 1/2-minute span in the third period, helping the Vegas Golden Knights to a 5-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks.Brayden McNabb, William Karlsson and Erik Haula also scored for the Golden Knights, who closed out a 4-2 road trip. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 35 shots.Neal scored his 24th goal of the season at 15:10 to put the Golden Knights ahead to stay. It was his 16th goal in the third period or later.”When it gets down to the third period, I take pride in giving my team a chance to win,” he said. ”It’s a time I try to turn it up as much as I can.”Joe Pavelski scored twice for the Sharks Cheap Tre'Davious White Jersey , who lost their second straight. Timo Meier also scored, and Martin Jones made 28 saves.”It was a tough game, a tale of a bunch of different games,” Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. ”I loved our first period but we came out with nothing to show for it. You play like that, you should come out in front. We didn’t and that hurt.”Fleury kept Vegas in it by stopping 15 shots in the opening period. The Golden Knights were held to four shots, and none in the first 13:50.”We came out sleeping tonight,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. ”They dominated that first period.

He wasn’t able to hang onto it as he lost his balance, giving Karlsson an easy tip-in.Meier tied it again midway through the second after knocking in a puck that bounced off Fleury’s shoulder pads from a Burns shot.”We played in their zone a lot,” Meier said. ”We just didn’t play our game for 60 minutes. They’re good off the rush and they take advantage of what you give them. We gave them too much. It hurts to lose a game like that.”Pavelski gave the Sharks a 3-2 advantage midway through the third, but McNabb evened things two minutes later. That set up Neal’s winning goal off a nice pass from David Perron.”I managed to get the puck and heard Perry calling for it behind me,” Neal said. ”I dropped it off and he made a great play to get it back to me and give me a chance to get a good shot off. I just tried to get it off quick.”Marchessault added an empty-net goal with 81 seconds remaining.NOTES: The Sharks recalled D Tim Heed from the minors before the game. … Jones appeared in his 200th NHL game. … Perron played in his 700th game. … Pavelski recorded his first multigoal game of the season. … Burns matched his season high with three assists.UP NEXTGolden Knights: Return home to host the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.Sharks: Host the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.
