Drew Doughty Out 7-10 Days, Kings Top Flyers On Another Overtime Goal By Jack Johnson

Jack Johnson scored just 99 seconds into overtime, giving the Los Angeles Kings a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center Saturday night in Philadelphia. It was the second game-winning overtime goal this season for Johnson, who did the same eight days ago against the New York Rangers in Stockholm, Sweden.

Drew Doughty took a big hit in the first period from Zac Rinaldo of the Flyers. He did not return to the bench in the second period. The initial report from the team was that Doughty suffered an upper body injury, but that was upgraded to a "non-head injury" that will keep Doughty out 7-10 days.

The two teams exchanged power play goals in the first period. Danny Briere lit the lamp 2:30 into the game, assisted by Jaromir Jagr and Chris Pronger. Nine minutes later, Justin Williams scored his first goal of the season for the Kings, assisted by Simon Gagne and Willie Mitchell.

Williams scored again for the Kings at 12:35 of thie third period to give the Kings a brief lead.

The Kings return home now to Los Angeles, where they will face the St. Louis Blues Tuesday night at Staples Center in the home opener for the Kings.
