The Los Angeles Kings went into Vancouver tonight and upset the number-one seed, winning 4-2 and pretty much dominating. Mike Richards, Willie Mitchell, Dustin Penner and Dustin Brown scored for LA, the last one into the empty net. The Kings' Kyle Clifford left early with an upper-body injury. They play again in British Columbia on Friday.
