Jonathan Marchessault picked up an assist in a 2-1 double overtime win over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 2.
We're not sure if it was intentional or not, but Marchessault's point shot bounced off the boards and right to Alex Tuch in front for the opening goal of the game. It's Marchessault's second career playoff point after picking up a point in five playoff games with the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 2015-16 post-season. The 27-year-old forward fired off seven shots of his own at goaltender Jonathan Quick tonight but was unable to beat the 32-year-old goaltender who stood on his head during tonight's game. Game 3 is scheduled for Sunday night. Apr 14 - 2:26 AM
