Kings Vs. Blues: Video: Jordan Nolan Scores First Career Playoff Goal For Kings

Jordan Nolan took an assist from Dustin Penner and put it in net at 4:36 into the first period, giving the Kings a 1-0 lead over the Blues. The Blues were coming from behind net looking to start a drive down the ice when Colin Fraser stuck himself in the middle, causing a scramble on which Penner and Nolan were able to capitalize. The video, behind the jump:

Nolan, a 7th round draft pick in 2009, hasn't seen much action in his rookie season playoffs, averaging under seven minutes on the ice per game. He made it count today, putting a wrist shot past Brian Elliot for his first career playoff goal. The young center played in 26 games from the past season, averaging less than ten minutes per game and managing 2 goals for the season.

The lead would not last, however, as Kevin Shattenkirk would score for the Blues at 11:34 into the first, leaving the game tied 1-1.
