    KINGS 1, Canucks 1

    Kings and Canucks struggle to a draw

  • Summary

     LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Defenseman Jason Strudwick scored his first NHL goal and Felix Potvin made 40 saves as the Vancouver Canucks earned a 1-1 tie with the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

     Ziggy Palffy scored for the Kings, who twice failed to capitalize on two-man advantages -- one lasting 58 seconds in the first period and the other for 1:06 of the second.

     Povtin, making his eighth start after missing five games because of a knee injury, stopped all 35 shots he faced in the second and third periods. The Kings averaged four goals in its previous 15 games.

     Alexander Mogilny returned to the Vancouver lineup after missing eight games with an injured shoulder. The Canucks are winless in eight road games (0-6-2) against the Kings since April 6, 1996.

     Strudwick, who scored 15 goals in 312 minor league games, got his first NHL score in his 139th game. He tied it with 29 seconds left in the opening period, shortly after the Canucks killed off a power play.

     The defenseman made his debut with the New York Islanders in 1996.

     Todd Bertuzzi backhanded a pass from the left circle toward the slot and the puck fluttered in the air to Strudwick. He gloved it, dropped it at his skates and sidestepped defenseman Mattias Norstrom before beating Stephane Fiset from 20 feet.

     Fiset had 32 saves.

     The Kings scored just 84 seconds in, extending their streak to six games with a first-period goal.

     Palffy, who did not play Saturday night at San Jose because of back spasms, beat Potvin through the pads from short range for his 25th goal after Luc Robitaille set him up with a pass from behind the net.

     The assist extended Robitaille's point-scoring streak to a career-best 14 games, the longest in the NHL this season.
