Canucks Vs. Kings, NHL Playoffs Score Update: Alex Burrows, Mike Richards Score, 1-1 Tie Heading To 2nd Period

The Los Angeles Kings kicked off their second season at Rogers Arena in Vancouver on Wednesday night, taking on the top seeded Canucks in game one of their Western Conference playoff series. And after a well fought first period, it's the Canucks that have taken the early lead by the score of 1-0.

Alex Burrows gave the Canucks the early lead after a fourth minute goal assisted by Henrik Sedin and Ryan Kesler. Here's a terrific look at the goal, as Alex Burrows grabs the rebound off the iron for the 360, whirling dervish of a goal, giving the Nucks the early lead on their home ice.

Mike Richards would score the equalizer in the 13th minute on the power play, assisted by Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty. Richards would just sneak it in the net after a traffic jam built up in front of the crease, shooting his shot from quite the awkward side angle.

It's only going to get wilder at the Rogers Arena, so stay tuned.
